While in New York, I happened to cross a Victoria’s Secret store and of course walked in to take a look at some of their products and lingerie. What I realised after was that the store actually had an exhibition upstairs of the collaboration between Victoria’s Secret and the French fashion house Balmain.
I personally adore this collaboration since I’m a big fan of both Balmain and Victoria’s Secret. The collection has the right amount of glam and punk to it and that makes the lingerie items unique and stunning. As Oliver Rousteing said, “I need to make sure that this punk is glam, and to bring punk to a couture level. It can’t look like punk on the street.” In my opinion, he succeeded.
When you see the garments that models actually wore in real life rather than on television, it makes you appreciate it even more. Everything is done extremely neatly – even the smallest details look perfect.
