SHOP THE BALMAIN SPRING 2023 RTW COLLECTION
Olivier Rousteing defines its collection around 2 themes that expose the duality between sky and earth, between bright and dark.
March 9, 2023
The Balmain Spring 2023 RTW collection is heavily inspired by two main themes, the Renaissance artistic movement through paintings references, and the Earth in its raw and natural aspect.
The first part of the collection is composed by printed pieces and pastel colored garments. Olivier and his team browsed parisian museums to develop exclusive prints and patterns mixing famous paintings & balmain originals. Silhouettes are conceived to be played either in total look or mix and match by integrating prints to plain fabrics, and by introducing soft pieces to tailored garments.
This second half of the collection answers the question of renaissance as a rebirth, and how to manufacture clothes with only natural raw materials. This quest is expressed on the show with spectacular designs made of raffia, woods, or dry leaves. It is traduced in the collection through linen fabrics, cords, virgin wool or canvas, technics as braiding, weaving, with natural colors around browns shades. Asymmetric styles with cuts and cords are also strong details of the theme.
