The collection blended the classic Balmain signature designs with the rich, dark palette of the AW15 collection. Dark emerald velvets and silks adorned with jewels were displayed alongside loose silk harem pants and bandeau tops reflecting the sultry 1970s aesthetic that dominated the autumn trends.
