Amazing jewel tones, incredible proportions, sophisticated accessories...the Balmain collection presented during Paris Fashion Week had it all. Browse through the show's most incredible looks.


The Balmain fall 2013 collection was a strong counterargument for the “less is more philosophy”. In the past years, maximalism was the preferred effect and opulence was seen as the ideal choice, an ideology that is perpetuated for the cold months of 2013. Designer Olivier Rousteing didn't let recession related thoughts get in the way of dreaming big: “I understand it was a time of dreaming and going against a bad economy. But I wanted to imagine the seventies in the future—in 3070!,” he told Vogue. With an array of exciting with an exciting disco allure, it's safe to say that the vision was well represented.

The new options carried an unmistakable trendy allure was evident through the precise proportions, geometric patterns, the high emphasis on shoulders as a way to make statement in the upcoming season, a fab set of elements that made the Balmain fall 2013 show one of the most fabulous highlights of this Paris Fashion Week fall 2013 edition so far. Oversized coats with a strong architectural component might very well be the “it” piece of the new season as it was one of the pieces that was spotted with a striking regularity on the most important runways in all style capitals.

The Balmain fall 2013 line was filled with interesting textures, from high wattage metallic shine elements to exquisite 3 D leather elements and plenty of intricate embellishments. If we've seen a lot of fairly relaxed fits, we've now seeing a high emphasis on the waist with cinch belts being one of the main focal point of the new looks. There's definitely no room for subtlety or any real possibilities of avoiding the spotlight in these amazing set of options to be sold under the Balmain label.

Though the clothes were the ones that mesmerized the audience, the Balmain fall 2013 collection made plenty of attractive suggestions as far as accessories are concerned. Long earrings were perhaps one of the most amazing offerings which matched the statement-making allure of the newest designs by the well known label. The new season will be all about stepping outside the box and experimenting with a variety of elements in order to become the center of attention.
