The showroom for the Balmain Resort 2014 Collection was filled with buyers and models showing off the skinny jeans and second-skin tees that the French label is so well known for.

However, designer Olivier Rousteing was busy pulling clothes off the racks with not just a new silhouette but a different sensibility as well. Houndstooth tweed overalls were the biggest surprise with a boyish slouch that sums up the brand's relaxed vibe.

Teddy bombers hardly lack for embroideries, and neither did a denim mini-dress with a bodice quilted in a Vichy check, or a pair of tiny little frocks with ballerina-esque tutu skirts. In the end, it was the off-duty ease of those overalls that made the collection a winner.
