Balmain’s Modern Retro – Balmain creative director Olivier Rousteing was in a nineties mood for the French fashion house’s spring 2014 collection shown during the third day of Paris Fashion Week. Jackets with boxy shoulders, quilted separates and skirts with flouncy hems that are either ruffle or feather-embellished gave a nod to Chanel during the nineties. Prints for the season embrace gingham and houndstooth motifs while the color palette is steeped in monochrome as well as pastel blues and pinks. The overall trend which we have seen a few times during spring previews, is highlighted with slinky pinstripes, sparkling squares or sleek leather.
