Balmain presented its next winter ‘s collection featuring luxurious fabrics and sports figures as the basis of the collection. The winter lookbook is quite different from the summer: the man of Balmain in the summer of 2014 is a part of an urban aesthetic, which banishes the winter. This contradiction takes place because the House tries to gradually change the philosophy of trying to respond to current social demands, without losing its glamor. Perhaps this is the only collection that opts for zebra inspired animal prints mixed with geometric cuts and high end detailing.
