Initiated under the age Christophe Decarnin, the reign of the trio “middle / sexyness / material effect” does not finish carving the woman Balmain. A stylistic signature Olivier Rousteing seems determined to continue, at the risk of repeating.
Like a harlequin from a bad episode of Dallas, very hieratic German Bo Don opens the parade Balmain kitsch on a note that the black and white of his costume diamond fails to truly subside.
Smelling a little too expensive to excess 80’s designer Claude Montana, middles first oversize fish passages for their lack of humility. Examples include the combined Aymeline Valade pants at perf ‘Lin Kjerulf or the overcoat chic Nadja Bender, who see their appearance completely parasitized by shoulder too wide to expect as it is down the street.
In contact with the material effect of season (based on the wickerwork, weaving technique used to make rattan chairs), maxi middles begin to diminish, however slightly, so as not to upstage the successors of micro dresses tapestry winter 2012.
Between Italian mobster costume, Lilliputian sublimely carved creations (version Louis Philippe furnishings) and sweatshirts to American football player fan handicrafts, Olivier Rousteing takes as his famous account of wicker braiding Stella McCartney likes to use for its accessories and declines in all directions, by mixing a few baroque motifs and other printed diamonds.
But investigations of creative young designer does not stop there certainly judging his jackets insufficiently massive Rousteing not hesitate to rethink their armhole (hoping to enhance their visual impact), before returning to jumble all strengths the parade in a joyful pandemonium of colors, textures and volumes, a cocktail is ultimately quite unconvincing.
Like creations “Fabergé” Fall / Winter 2012-2013 (who shone by their absence in recent snapshots street-style), the locker room last summer proposed by Olivier Rousteing will probably very hard to do a place on the wishlists of fashionistas influential, even on those loyal customers of the brand.
