Balmain Inspiration for Spring Summer 2019
We are dedicating a series of inspirational ideas for Spring / Summer 2019 from Paris Fashion Week. At Get Waisted we realise that not everyone has the luxury of owning a Balmain creation, and at Get Waisted, we specialise in creating bespoke, made to measure garments.
So keep an eye out for our series of inspiration videos and if you spot something you like, give us a call. Toni can either recreate an entire garment inspired by the original, or elements of it, to your specification. All you need to do is make an appointment to discuss the design. Get Waisted we’ll do the rest, it’s that simple.
Introducing the Balmain Collection
The collection was awash with shimmering silver, white and black, including the introduction of arch shapes across the shoulders. Add on simple, deliberately worn blue jeans.
Rousteing 2019 collection focused on showcasing super-strong women in and powerful and deliberate manner.
Starting with a showcase of white robes with metallic at the bust, or the Greek effect of a white pleated top cut on the round. The pleats engineered with compass accuracy appeared throughout the show. Or there were hieroglyphics as a pattern on a black and white top – those prints following through the entire sector. With dramatic effect of changing subjects, Rousteing moved on to the jeans – white and multi washed. With shiny silver added to recycled or ripped pieces.
There was so many different concepts, from geometric triangles to body-scanning contours. That brought a new softness to Balmain’s sometimes aggressive body-conscious cutting.
