This black and multi-coloured Balmain sequin embellished long sleeved dress is exactly what we have come to expect from our copain (as the French say) Olivier Rousteing. You see, it was tailored with a typically Balmain structured shape, with sharp shoulders, long sleeves, a short length and a v-neck; features which complement each other beautifully. Elevated with an all-over multi-coloured sequin embellished design (it's basically like the jazz hands of the dress world), we are styling our Balmain dress with a classic monogram leather clutch, heeled sandals and yellow gold and diamond earrings to our next black-tie event.

MEET THE DESIGNER
The Browns’ edit of Balmain encapsulates the prestigious fashion house’s baroque and rock-chick aesthetic. Founded by Pierre Balmain in 1945, the fashion designer was one of the creative masterminds behind French fashion’s post World War II renaissance. The innovator of the brand’s signature ‘Jolie Madame’ aesthetic, the famed designer replaced the outdated utilitarian look with opulent and richer designs, which became an instant success amongst Hollywood’s elite. Since Balmain’s death in 1982, the brand has welcomed a plethora of successors through its doors who have continued to emulate the brand’s elegant and feminine vision. Since Olivier Rousteing was appointed as Balmain’s creative director in 2011, the ‘new generation’ brand has undergone a trendsetting revival which has pushed the couture house to the forefront of fashion and as a result has gained a powerful A-list celebrity following.
