ARTISANAL ARMY
Paris:
The mood at Balmain this season was all about having fun with fashion. Designer Olivier Rousteing showed a playfully chic collection that was inspired by the jungle, mixing tropical brights with crisp military tones. Craftsmanship was evident in every detail, from the rope knotted tops and dresses to the sparkly metallic chains that were woven directly into garments.—Shannon Davenport
