#PFW Balmain SS15 Collection
Olivier Rousteing’s SS15 Balmain Army, which included some of the best models in the business, stormed the catwalk for Paris Fashion Week. Kendall Jenner, Joan Smalls, Karlie Kloss and Jourdan Dunn hit the runway in black leather lattice, and dresses that were long, lean, zip-backed and to the shin. Rousteing also opted for a modern look that gave feminine pants an entirely sexy and powerful spin.
#PFW Rick Owens SS15 Collection
When Kanye West congratulates anyone other than himself, it must mean that person did an exceptional job. After Rick Owen’s show, Kanye congratulated the designer on a tranquil and serene collection.
“Congratulations. It was a beautiful show – very inspiring.”
– Kanye West
With a surprising focus on tulle, Owens showed an emphasis on tabard, A-line shapes, padded waistcoat blazers, and panelled dresses with architectural details.
#PFW Nina Ricci SS15 Collection
Nina Ricci has a reputation as a romantic brand whose backbone is all lace, froth, frills and femininity. However, Creative director Peter Copping, took inspiration from the house’s heritage – when Madam Ricci and her son Robert would create scale models of couture dresses to promote French fashion during the post-war period. As a result, we saw 40s tea dresses and belted jackets worn with penciled skirts.
