We Bet Kim Kardashian Just Added This Whole Spring Collection to Her Closet
We can only imagine what was going through Kim Kardashian's mind as Balmain's Spring '17 collection made its way down the catwalk. The star, who sat front row at the show, is a big fan of the brand, frequently rocking Balmain pieces on the red carpet and even out and about. She was probably ready to shop. This time around, however, creative director Olivier Rousteing had something different in mind. The "Balmain army has shed its armor," he revealed in the show's notes, hinting toward what was to come.
The collection favored plenty of metallics and dark neutrals, but vibrant greens, oranges, reds, and purples were mixed in. The designs were also a bit flowy, softer, and more feminine, and pieces billowed out as models — including Gigi Hadid and Jourdan Dunn — made their way down the runway. Capes, sheer styles, silky dresses, and tons of snakeskin could be seen, and — despite that switch in direction — revealing cutouts along with chain-like pieces popped up. Olivier also embraced the single-earring trend, which we've been seeing everywhere as of late.
We're willing to bet Kim was pretty happy with all the sexy, eye-catching designs she saw, especially considering she later wore a Spring '17 dress to the Balmain afterparty.
