Fashion Week Paris - Balmain

Already the Pre-Fall collection of Balmain had an exotic touch with the different animal prints in combination with leather, but with the Fall collection, Olivier Rousteing presented today, he could even strengthen the tribal theme. Also the color palette created interesting contrast with olive and dark blue hues and bright orange and yellow as a contrast.
The Balmain silhouette has always something from the 1980s with the emphasized shoulders and waist.  For Fall pleats, peplums and ropes added another dimension to the look which seemed more layered and colorful than before. I liked for example the pleated peplum belts over the skirts and the rope dress, though my favorite look is the asymmetrical grey leather top combined with grey cargo trousers and  the orange belt.
