Balmain's designer Olivier Rousteing has been noted for his keen diverse style, while keeping true to his Parisian roots. Paris is a city filled with many different faces and styles, making it a marvelous melting pot. Balmain's Fall/Winter 2015 collection was inspired by the diversity we see throughout the decades in fashion, and the edge and chic style we see on the streets today. Different pieces took different elements of style from various decades, from 80's style shoulder pads and ruffled skirts, to a 90's style flared out "Cant Touch This" pant. One of the most notable aspects of Balmain's design is the color choices and placements. Keeping black as a major player, deep rich jewel tones take these designs to the next level, as well as hints of shimmer and gold taking these designs to a unique sophistication.
Balmain's F/W 2015 collection had us inspired to create a bouquet that felt true to this modern yet elegant aesthetic. Starting with a slender black vase, black schwartzwalder calla lilies embody the dark rich element while the gilded eucalyptus intertwines to bring elegance to this bouquet. The bright green stems of the calla lilies also captures that pop of color while wrapped together with a black ribbon. Both the collection and arrangement are current yet timeless and would have any woman feeling strong in her stride.
