Balmain and Olivier Rousteing get it right again with their FW2014 collection, Jungle Fever, during Paris Fashion Week. What I adore about Balmain is the consistent eye for detail, the belted and nipped in waists, the femininity with an edge, and substantial designs. You never feel that Olivier phones it in, like some other top design houses I’ve seen this season. I want to see fine pieces of art, not just fabric flung over hangers with a heartbeat. These pieces (a few of the 46 looks) were some of my favorites.
Whether hardcore, fun and funky or outright beaming chic, Balmain hits the high notes and take you to places that make you breathe heavy and moan with excitement.
