The Balmain army was deployed to an Olivier Rousteing-imagined future this morning, a 90-strong detachment of sci-fi sirens uniformed in neon-spectrum plissé, holographic PVC, and holographic paillettes.

This might be reaching just a little, but as they transported back and forth down the deep-pile carpet, his cast looked like time travelers sent back from 2050 (the year in which Rousteing imagined this collection) to alter the course of fashion history. Their mission? Umm: to sabotage any plans to lure Rousteing from Balmain.
