Pop In Primary Colours Inspired by Balmain
When I saw this Balmain Spring 2015 Ready-to-Wear Collection I almost died and went to heaven. Not only is it super colourful (now that I love colour, I can't get enough of it) but it is sexy too. My absolute favourite number is the belted dress shown in photo 5. Someone hand me a larger bank account so I can get my hands on that dress please!
Most of us can only look on with awe and watch supermodels get dressed in Balmain. However sometimes I get lucky on eBay and in the sales overseas. Very rarely though since the price point is so high. That doesn't stop me putting together an outfit inspired by these Balmain Spring 2015 Ready-to-Wear runway looks though.
First let's look at their elements. Primary colours. Check. Transparency. Check. Belts at waist for extra oomph. Check. Comfortable fabrics. Check. Wearability. A BIG check. I've already said the Mondrian inspired dress in photo 5 is my favourite. However the all red ensemble in photo 4 is a close second. There I go again - loving pleats at the moment.
With all these things in mind let's also look at primary colours on the street. The primary colours in the dress in photo 6 are broken up by the crisp white stripes which allows Miroslava Duma to wear a comfy pair of white sneakers. The bright coat in photo 7 is all this street style look needs to pull it into this season. I especially love the matching top and skirt in photo 8. Plus you can't go past the stripe statement ribbed Céline dress in photo 8.
I've put together my own Primary School outfit based on the photos I have included in this post. But shhhhh... Don't tell anyone... It's also inspired by what is currently on sale online. You may also notice that I have included a purple coat in this ensemble. Yes - the outfit is mostly red and blue. However you want a statement piece, and going one step around the colour wheel can provide you with just that. A coat that stands out in an already bright outfit!
