Miley Cyrus rocked out at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards in a Balmain jumpsuit from the Spring 2013 RTW collection. Miley outshined her fancy ballroom gown competition and the casual counterparts alike.
Designer Olivier Rousteing was inspired by Cuban / Latin influences from a visit to Miami. The use of black and white tile patterns and intricate basket woven designs gracefully resemble wicker furniture. Big 90’s shoulders, high waistlines, and loose fitting trousers also make an appearance in this decadent collection. Balmain’s cohesive collection tied together with leather and select denim pieces combined glamour, and royal detailing reminiscent of Kings and Queens. In fact, when I originally viewed this collection, it reminded me of royalty with an edge – I immediately thought of a Queen of Diamonds playing card. The bold black and white diamond patterns trump the other pieces with eye catching chromatic contrast, while couture quality embellishments simply made me fall in love! Rousteing took two seemingly opposite and benign inspirations and intertwined them effortlessly.
We absolutely love it! Kudos to Miley and Olivier Rousteing, the designer of the Balmain Spring 20143 Ready-to-Wear Collection. Click here to view their lookbook.
