The new Balmain Pre-Fall 2018 collection lookbook has officially been unveiled, and the latest crop of designs are more exciting than ever. Parisian nightlife meets iconic rockstar stage ensembles with this truly dazzling line that glitters in every way possible.
This collection reimagines the three colors blue, red, and silver – inspired by France’s blue, red, and white flag – in nearly endless patterns and combinations. From studded jackets to sequined minidresses and sleek jumpsuits, you’ll find chevron, shimmer, and sexiness in each piece. Add in some trendy, luxurious velvet, and futuristic PVC detailing, and you know you’ll have an eye-catching set of garments.
Every single sparkling detail nods to Paris too, which is reflected in the brand’s latest lookbook campaign imagery.
“Shooting the Men’s and Women’s Pre-Fall offerings on the Crillon’s terrace, perched above the spectacular Place de la Concorde, not only underlines Balmain’s deep connection with the French capital—it also reflects our determination to always aim for an elegance that will stand the test of time,” Creative Director Olivier Rousteing shared about the collection.
The French inspiration behind these edgy and sparkling designs is very intentional on Rousteing’s part. It’s all about celebrating the brand’s Parisian roots, while trend-spotting way into the future.
“France is way more attractive these days; we should keep pushing that attraction and being proud,” the creator said. “We have a chance right now to shine, so let’s keep shining.”
If there’s one thing that’s for sure, it’s that this collection definitely shines!
