The word “stretch” preceded most fabric compositions from Balmain’s AW16 collection. The French label’s legendary allure was tightly-packed, poured into pencil skirts and immersed in bell-shaped dresses. It’s the way Mr Olivier Rousteing has cultivated the brand’s sensuality and it’s typified by this stretch-knit dress. Partly 90s disco with wide glitter stripes, a high-cut neck keeps it fitting of the show's ornate 19th Century Hotel Potocki location.
