The supers are back! But did they ever really fall off the radar, even just a little bit? Given that Balmain creative director/consort to the stars Olivier Rousteing's been championing social media darlings Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid and their peers, it's a welcome relief to see Naomi Campbell, Claudia Schiffer and Cindy Crawford in the label's SS16 print campaign!
Modelling tiered fabric high waisted trousers, crochet tops and skirts, structured blazers and more in Balmain's signature neutral palette, Olivier explains in a press release just what impact these '90s supermodels had on him in his youth...
"When I was a schoolboy in Bordeaux, it was their editorials that first made clear to me the amazing transformative power of fashion. Still today, many years on, their iconic images are often found amongst the jumble on mood boards in my (and every other designer's) atelier. To say that working with them was a dream come true is no exaggeration."
