Women's silhouette: Tailoring defines the Balmain silhouette, like the fitted velvet blazer with powerful shoulder pads, or a longer double-breasted blazer, its gold buttons imprinted with Balmain insignia. A leather biker jacket has a neat shape, gold detailing and dominant shoulders, while short bodycon dresses are quintessential Balmain, like a long-sleeved deep-V neck dress that’s covered all over in green sequins.
Feminine material: Satin and velvet bring French femininity, such as a dark green silk satin blouse with a baroque jacquard that overlaps at the front to fasten at the shoulder, or silk satin high-waisted harem pants with full volume at the thigh before tightening at the calf. Meanwhile devoré velvet is used for a long-sleeved turtleneck mini-dress, or wide-leg low-waisted pants that are like flared pyjamas.
Powerful details: Graphic elements are essential, whether it be the black and white wide vertical stripes on an oversized silk shirt and stretch jeans, or the graphic red and black panels of a fitted knit dress. Rope detailing and metallic thread bring grandeur to pieces such as a velvet dress covered in patterns of rope, or a black velvet dress decorated with eagles in metallic thread, with rhinestone and pearl embellishment surrounded with borders of gold rope.
Rich embellishment: An all-over beaded mini-dress is among the most highly realised ever for an H&M collaboration, fitted tight to the body with a heavy gold zip at the back. An embroidered black velvet blazer – as worn by Kendall Jenner at the Billboard Awards – shows the nonchalant side of Balmain, long enough to also be worn as a dress.
Accessories: Accessories are as important as the clothes, especially the high-waisted belts that have become a Balmain essential. Rope sandals and thigh-high boots add glamour, while rope necklaces, drop earrings and crystal-embellished pochettes finish the look.
