Fashion has its own rules, and although always brings a fresh breeze does not mean that it is predictable. Today comes to us full of optical illusions. This fall fashion is all about optical illusion. Cases in point: pieces in the Milan collections from magicians using kaleidoscopic blends of bold colors, geometric prints and perspective-altering patterns to trick the eye.
Designer Olivier Rousteing channels the traditional art of corsetry for Balmain’s Fall/Winter 2016 collection. Celebrating the natural beauty of each woman, Rousteing uses the niche craftsmanship technique to deliver a range that emphasizes shape and proportion. Defined by smooth curves and corset-inspired offerings, the collection reimagines the enchantment of a dying practice through the introduction of light greys and soft pastels, lace tailoring and lingerie-focused designs.
