The Collection’s Signature, Standout Look:¬† The 80s were a time of excess and nobody does excess from that era, or this one, better than Balmain. Drawing from a visual vocabulary of pinstripes, quilted bomber jackets, heavy chains in black and gold and bold oversized houndstooth prints, Olivier Rousteing updated the ’80s mantra of¬† “Go big or go home” for the modern woman. A bold houndstooth dress cinched with a thick, chained belt and paired with a matching padded houndstooth jacket is sure to turn a few heads at the office.
