PFW: Balmain Collection Pays Homage to Yves Saint Laurent

The Balmain F/W 2015 RTW collection was inspired by and paid tribute to the late Yves Saint Laurent, channeling the designer’s 1970’s and 1980’s portfolio.

High waistlines, chunky cinch belts, glittering fringe, pleated silk, lace, vibrant stripes, colors like pumpkin orange and electric fuchsia….it is SO reminiscent of Saint Laurent‘s loud statement pieces of that era.

  1. Are fashion models deliberately unattractive so that their looks won’t distract you from the clothing?

    1. All in the eye of the beholder, I guess. I don’t really find these women unattractive. I do find someone judging them for their looks (in a snapshot moment) rather than judging the works they are wearing to be greatly unattractive.
