25-year-old designer Olivier Rousteing has created something other than his Resort 2012 collection and it’s Balmainia! Again, as well as in the menswear collection are clean (de-gaudied) biker jeans and leather jackets complimented by a range of pastel pieces.
“Can Rousteing generate the sort of excitement that Decarnin stirred up at the height of the label’s popularity a couple of years ago? It’ll take a runway show or two to tell for sure. In his favor is the fact that fashion already seems to be over its brief minimal phase. Another thing he has going for him: Like his predecessor, he cuts a mean jacket”
