Balmain #RTW Spring 2015 #PFW

"Balmain's Olivier Rousteing said his starting point this season was last season's after-party. Scroll back through the months and you'll recall Rihanna, a sheer mesh top, and a much-like Instagram pic. 'Let's free the nipple, you know what I mean?' he said backstage. As it turns out, there were no exposed nipples here, but there was a lot of skin and no shortage of transparencies - from the plastic inset on the hem of a mini, to the plissé mousse line of swishy flares, to the sheer nylon knits that have been popular on other runways as well. But for a show that was about 'pushing the boundaries of sex,' as Rousteing bluntly put it, it didn't always read as sexy. But in the end, this collection was at its best when Rousteing was thinking streamlines (a black bandage dress with cutouts that bisected the midriff) or sensual (Joan Smalls' strappy, plunge-front dress and sheer pants in fiery red)." - style.com
