The Balmain Pre-Fall 2014 collection has a dark, elegant edge that will appeal to modern women who want to channel their inner femme fatale in a more exotic way. Inspired by the African safari, particularly the work of photographer Peter Beard, it embraces both the native and adventurer stereotypes in a chic and glamorous way.
Shades of army green, deep blues and blacks complement the warm-colored panther prints and graphic zebra stripes that are prevalent throughout the Balmain Pre-Fall 2014 collection. The pieces are also full of structure, whether tailored so or cinched with a smart belt. Overall, the Balmain Pre-Fall 2014 collection brings a much-needed dose of boldness for the season, which will empower women in exciting and stylish ways.
