Paris Fashion Week 2024: The Balmain Runway - A Hand Tailored Suit

Paris Fashion Week 2024: The Balmain Runway

Paris Fashion Week 2024, an event at the forefront of global fashion and the finale of the Fashion Week events took place between the 26th of February and the 5th of March in the Carrousel du Louvre. Highlights from the week included shows from fashion's most famous brands: Chanel, Givenchy, Christian Dior, Hermes, Balmain, and Chloe. 

This Fashion Week's collections were intended for the autumn and winter of 2024. Although the designers stamped their own style onto the collections, there were a lot of stand-out trends, from the now ubiquitous sheer fabrics of many a past runway and award event to faux fur, denim, corsets, 80s-style oversized jackets and shoulder pads, sequins, knits, and a lot of black. Most designers mixed archival designs with futuristic silhouettes and materials, honouring their past while still innovating.

The Balmain Autumn/Winter 24 ready-to-wear collection combined traditional tailoring with modern twists. Take a look at the full runway show below.

Olivier Rousteing used his hometown of Bordeaux as his inspiration, leading to an explosion of gingham reminiscent of picnics in the countryside, embellishments in the form of snails on buttons of the traditional Balmain trenchcoat and other items, and barrels of grapes used as decoration on clothes and accessories as a homage to Bordeaux rich wine-making history. One central element of the collection was the humble khaki trousers that were paired with leather corsets or Murano glass tops for a high-fashion take on a usually casual piece. There were also plenty of traditional Balmain elements, such as exquisite draping, pleating, and beading. Let's take a look at some of the pieces.
