Guaranteeing that Balmain’s SS16 pret-a-porter show had maximum impact at Paris Fashion Week this season, a bevy of beautiful runway models strutted their stuff. Creative director Olivier Rousteing’s ladies-of-the-moment included Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Bella Hadid and Taylor Hill. Down the ramp came ruffle-tiered trousers and crossover-peek-a-boo tops paired with latticed skirts.

Cinched waists were the order of the day, most evident in belted bronze bodysuits plus caramel suede bomber jackets and dresses. Accessories comprised high-necked metal collars, oversized earrings weighted with bone-like stones and vertiginous laced sandals.
