Balmain’s spectacular spring-summer ‘22 show is a celebration of Olivier Rousteing’s 10 years as artistic director. His amazing work with links – the most basic element of a chain – serves to confirm his status of king of opulence and bejeweled apparel. Take the chains he embroiders on leather jackets or works into draping. Or the trompe l’oeil version on white quilted leather. Or indeed the variety that seems wrapped around the body like a bandage – an omnipresent theme alluding to Rousteing’s recent accident. It was to conceal his burns that he began wearing rings on all fingers like those in the show. And as the central element of this collection, links even become a garment in their own right when Roustaing enlarges them, turning them into an ultra-sexy top. Magnificent.
