I was looking forward to one of the most anticipated show of this Spring, which had a Cuban theme. He got his inspiration from the black-and-white tile floors and wicker chairs he used as reference points for this show. There were a variety of glam-chic powerwomen strutting their stuff down the runway. The statement harlequin prints were in a variety of color this season and had crystal beading on them. Many of the cuts of the clothing referenced the early 1990's, ranging from crop tops, to mini skirts, to men's trousers. The exaggerated shoulders is also a Balmain trademark that had a comeback this season, but in a more sophisticated way. Also the jewelry was an important part of the looks, as sublime ornamentation reigned in some of the collection's looks. Staying true to Balmain’s aesthetic, the dresses of the collection were bold and sexy with an edge.
