Balmain Pearl-embellished crushed-velvet dress

$2,670
As the AW16 Balmain show came complete with a mini orchestra and cabaret singer, the ante was upped. And the French fashion house surpassed expectations, reinventing the Jolie Madame aesthetic neglecting no-nonsense military detail in favour of ruffles and frills. The shoulder-enhanced silhouette remained, as it does on this dress, but it takes a dainty turn with countess-like pearl embellishment on a sweet foundation of crushed velvet.
