Paris: After a recent trip to Los Angeles, creative director Olivier Rousteing was enamored by the carefree lifestyle of its citizens. As a result, a strong ’70s influence pervaded his latest Cruise collection for Balmain. Graphic Navajo-inspired patterns and vibrant color juxtaposed with stark black-and-white made a bold statement. – Deirdre Pérez
