Olivier Rousteing does it again! The designer truly knows how to create a stir within the fashion industry. This time by using the most iconic supermodels of an ear for his latest Balmain campaign – Claudia Schiffer, Cindy Crawford and Naomi Campbel.

Speaking about why Balmain cast the trio, designer Olivier Rousteing said:

“When I was a schoolboy in Bordeaux, it was their editorials that first made clear to me the amazing transformative power of fashion,” he said. “Still today, many years on, their iconic images are often found amongst the jumble on mood boards in my (and almost every other designers’) atelier. To say that working with them was a dream come true is no exaggeration.”

It’s so amazing to see slightly older women as desirable icons instead of the usual 18-year old model.

Rousteing, you did good.

I was pretty damn stoked when Mr Price announced that they were going to be releasing a limited edition collection designed by Henry Holland late last year, the man’s a genius, but I was even more stoked when I found out Chloe Norgaard was going be a part of it too! I love Chloe, she’s a free spirit that beats to her own drumbeat. The queen of colour.

The collection was quirky and humorous, with matching sets and sporty separates… and lots of colour. I loved so many individual pieces that I couldn’t merely share one look from this collection so I decided to style three looks instead.

The first look has a sort of R&B street feel to it. I got the inspo to use the matching leggings under my distressed boyfriend jeans from Chloe Norgaard herself. I was hanging out with her at the Soho house during fashion week last year and it was getting a little chilly so she threw on a pair of funky tights under her jeans and the idea stuck with me.

For the second look I wanted to show how one could take this bright funky collection and actually turn it into something one could wear to a business meeting. A more dressed up version. The pencil skirt, heels and blazer add a touch of quirky elegance to the otherwise eccentric leopard print.

P.S notice my nails… ice cream rainbow nails. Yet another inspo stolen from Miss Queen of Colour.

I kept the final look pretty simple going for a nineties trend. High pony, bright scrunchie and school socks.

The great thing about this collection is that you can truly style it any way you want, there’s no rules. Dress it up, dress it down, wear it to the office, wear it to the gym, just go wild! I’m sure that’s want Henry would want 😉
