Luxury fashion house Balmain – a fave of the Kardashian-Jenner-West clan – recently set Kuala Lumpur ablaze with a spectacular showcase of its Fall/Winter 2023 collection – an exclusive event which lured dressed-for-the-Gods fashionistas, celebrities, media representatives and KOLs from far and wide.
Unfolding at Bukit Bintang’s The Starhill Atrium, the EXTRA extravaganza dubbed “Balmain Revisited” saw homage being paid to the Parisian brand’s 78-year archive of New French Style; as well as its founder, Pierre Balmain – to the delight of attendees who were LIVING for it.
Situated steps away from Balmain’s KL flagship boutique, the catwalk unfurled full-on-glamour, with looks for both women and men inspired by iconic and signature pieces from the fashion powerhouse’s glittering sartorial history.
The divine presentation was topped by shatteringly-awesome performances by Malaysian jazz queen, Noryn Aziz, who was rocking several Balmain fits.
When all was said and done, the ‘eleganza’ event quickly became one of the most talked-about happenings in KL. If you had the bad luck of being absent from the fashion-show-to-end-all-fashion-shows, here’s a recap we cobbled together just for you.
