Balmain 2022 Fall fashion show： A few months ago, themes envisioned as metaphors – body armor, tactical gear, protective clothing, compression pads – to showcase Olivier Rousteing’s theme inevitably grabbed attention on tonight’s runway. Shortly before the fashion show, Rousteing released a statement on his social media (ironically, the catalyst for the original theme): “We are well aware that something more important is happening in the world today. When we are pregnant with Listening to the latest news with heavy hearts, it’s hard to feel right to focus on the runway and clothing. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Ukrainian people. Inspired by their dignity, tenacity, and dedication to freedom And in the notes, he showed him: “These runway products were not designed to be a direct response to the recent horrific incursion into our neighbors, and I wouldn’t even dare to think of comparing the pain they’re going through right now, my problem with social media. Still, my team and I remembered this episode’s message as we watched the news: Together, we can rely on the power of hope and truth to fight back hate, lies, and aggression.”
The three-act show featured two tribal dances before the segue mainline-ended combined with a group of seven, so powerful gowns-themed collection of signatures first written on the runway by Pierre Balmain. The first lecture was in October 1945. Even before Christian Dior, Balmain’s imagination was the most avant-garde fashion green shoot, leading to Paris’s post-war reconstruction and rise.
At this point, you might say “Nevertheless” in a comment and then quickly start describing those expressive garments delivered in typical pompous Rustin style. You can do this for a long time because while this is usually excellent, this series of performances need to be edited, not repeated. The original theme of the sport has come up with an armored pair of images morphing online, too many metaphors to illustrate the protective wear inspired by the dressing and recovery gear Rousteing was forced to wear after his home caught fire, burned as well as motorsports equipment, ancient armor, modern militaries Doctrine, and Marvel’s costume guidelines.
In a collection that’s themed around a large platform, however, that won’t be enough to reflect Rousteing’s approach to the show’s limitations as a platform at this particular moment. After Armani, he became one of the first designers to have commercial skin, acknowledging that the heavy industry was incapable of facing its dire relationship with the present and talking about it. It’s nothing compared to the acts of bravery we are now marveling at: but it’s also meaningful.
