Show Report: Balmain Spring/Summer 2012

Balmain’s latest collection epitomised the label’s edgy, adventurous signature style. Gold mini-skirts and cropped jackets were just the beginning of the show’s new slant on Balmain’s popular grunge look. A significant number of leather ensembles, including skin-tight trousers and hot pants paired with a bustier top, were also showcased, accentuating the audacious theme of the collection. A white, gold and black colour palette alongside noticeably oversized embellishments, shoulder pads and studs added to the glamorous retro rock-chick look, giving the audience exactly what they desired.
