The French fashion house delivers on its knockout silhouette again for AW16, this time with attention-grabbing, Insta-inspiring glamour. Balmain’s shape is slim and fitted, often prefixed by the word “stretch”, such as this stretch-knit dress. This style leans towards the label’s more romantic stirrings for AW16 with lace-up detailing and contrast panelled ruching taking its cues from medieval corsetry.
