Power Pieces: The Balmain Jacket

Power Pieces: The Balmain Jacket

With the likes of Joan Smalls, Jourdan Dunn and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley all counting themselves unwavering recruits of the Balmain army, the illustrious French fashion house’s Creative Director, Olivier Rousteing, has achieved the ultimate in desirability; and no other piece in his repertoire is more coveted than the jackets.

Characterised by power shoulders and a nipped in waist, the example was set during Christophe Decarnin’s tenure at Balmain, when jackets played a key part in the designer’s military-inspired Spring/Summer 2009 collection. Sarah Jessica Parker, Victoria Beckham and Gwyneth Paltrow were early advocates, while Olivier Rousteing’s exquisitely-tailored styles count Jennifer Lawrence, Karlie Kloss and street style maven Helena Bordon as super fans.
