Olivier Rousteing is a master of knitwear, as seen on the Parisian runways. In his hands, sweaters and cardigans take on another dimension. The fusion of perfect cuts and bold shapes brings pieces to life that hug the body without restricting movement, creating the most flattering of silhouettes. As a result, many of Balmain’s knitwear pieces are so versatile that they can easily transition from day to night. Designer women’s sweaters play a leading role in this collection. Whether fitted or loose, with well-defined or fluid asymmetrical lines, they can be successfully incorporated into outfits with layers or shine all on their own. The women’s designer cardigans are another star piece in the collection. Olivier Rousteing has revived the iconic Parisian silhouette with a cinched-in waist, crafting Balmain knitwear that combines a powerful design with the artisanal savoir-faire the fashion house has accumulated for over 75 years.
