The runways continue to bring the top fashion styles for autumn winter 2018. Balmain, also known as Balmain’s Army, takes the sheer look to the next level. Olivier Rousteing, Artistic Director, young and intuitive brings sexiness and sleekness to the forefront with sheer pants, blouses, and coats. He brings honor to the founder, Pierre Balmain, he brings the tradition to a real true modern futuristic level. Rousteing is in tune with the younger generation and aware of the power social media plays in today’s world (he has a following of 4.7 million on Instagram).
Issey Miyake brings texture and dimension to the collection perfectly layered for any autumn winter weather. This collection is innovation, creativity, and new fabrics. The texture uses various uses of feathers, furs, folds, and stitching. The use of new fabrics is really innovative. He uses folds and manipulating the fabrics to add volume to the styling of each look. Yoshiyuki Miyamae, Creative Director, stays true to his reputation with this collection. The collection is full of textures creating a winter full of energy and texture.
Yohji Yamamoto’s collection is to a long time friend, Azzedine Alaïa, he passed on in November 2017. Alaïa was an independent couture designer, one of the top designers the 20th and 21st century. The collection brings both designers together with the strong presence of black (a signature color for both designers). The styling brings a fine the line of life and death. The clothing presents a definition of strong powerful lines with the abstract use of the cuts, exceptional tailoring, and fabrics. The end results you can question if this Paris collection brought Yamamoto a great sense of his lifelong friend’s presence and love even after death.
