Look of the day: Balmain

A lazy sunday calls for a laid-back style, and today nothing spoke to me like Olivier Rousteing’s latest collection for Balmain.
The young French designer referenced the nineties at his Spring/Summer ’13 show in Paris last week. 
Models took to the runways in bold colours and exaggerated shapes, a homage to the supermodels that defined his childhood.
 Baggy trousers worn with crops tops or a belted jacket, accessorised with drop gold hoops and a scraped back bun; the most louche of loungewear.
On the face, subtle contouring and an eschewing of mascara, guaranteed that only garments were embellished.
Not only a summer look to look forward to, Balmain’s nineties ease is easily adaptable, and suddenly feels so right for a trip to the newsagents, the pub, or brunch- the noughties power lunch.
