Balmain marched into place adorned in Greek military chic gear. The collection, chock full of metallic frocks, more strong shoulders, and tough girl accessories.

Each piece demands attention, from the captain-esque shoulders, braided belts and worn-in t-shirts.

Cutouts were prevalent in dresses, offering a mysterious peak at the womanly figure in staggering lengths, bearing more than usual.

The mostly leggy collection was paired with heeled combat boots--ready for a fashion war.

The collection was fully equipped with looks for both day and night.

Balmain jumped on the pantsless bandwagon with a metallic bodysuit, mirroring a loin cloth.

The color palette embodied neutrals and metallics in various textures.
