When I think about the Balmain brand, there are two models who come to mind. Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid headed to Balmain in super cool outfits that seem to capture the spirit of the brand. Not only did both models walk in the SS16 PFW show for the brand, but they also wore similar outfits when arriving to the show. These ladies so perfectly embody the Balmain spirit, and I guess that’s what happens when you become BFFs with the creative director!
Olivier Rousteing has a group of go-to models that he uses for runways, photo shoots and more, and I’d definitely say that these ladies are at the top of his list. Jenner and Hadid wore tight-fitting pants and crop tops on their way to the runway show. They each topped their skin-baring ensembles off with bold jackets. Jenner’s bomber jacket was black with gold embellishment, which just screams Balmain (although I couldn't tell you if the jacket was actually designed by Rousting). Hadid threw a fully sequined blazer on over her outfit, so clearly, she too was channeling the brand's hyper-embellished, sexy feel before she ever hit the runway.
Balmain has a distinct chic-ness to it, and these ladies just totally own that look. Whether designing for the runway or for H&M, you know the brand when you see it, just like you know a Balmain woman no matter who she's actually wearing.
That bomber jacket is everything.
How amazing is that sequined blazer?
Guess we know where Jenner got her inspiration for her black and gold patterned jacket. Since this was designed for H&M, it won't be hard for you to get the Balmain vibe, too.
Oh yeah, and remember Hadid's embellished blazer? This is pretty similar. Thanks, Hadid for giving us some major outfit inspo.
Once you're a part of this squad, you know you've made it.
