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.
