Balmain Spring 2022 Ready-to-Wear Collection

6000 people came to watch Balmain’s new Spring 2022 collection show. Designed by Rousteing — the first Black person to lead a historic French house, the collection was a roaring success.

This is what Luke Leitch, Vogue writer and critic, had to say about the looks presented in the show: “ sensuality of the backless tailoring in menswear, the sludgily comfy appeal of his Insta-friendly slides, the square link chain details that were the metaphorical point of connection across the collection, and the framing of the female body that felt more celebratory than salacious.”

Here are some of the show’s highlights.
