Endorsed by stars all over the world and close friends with the likes of Kim K and Kanye West, it is hard to see Balmain’s Creative Director, Olivier Rousteing doing any wrong. And it is with his latest collection for Resort 2019 that proves exactly why he sits at the pinnacle of men’s street wear – and ICON is giving you a first look at the ENTIRE look book.

What can only be characterised as “tropical grunge”, Rousteing’s contrasts bright colour with obnoxious hardware and metallic finishing with Hawaiian prints, applied to Balmain’s most legendary silhouettes.

We can’t help but feel futuristic, post apocalyptic vibes entrenched behind the backdrop, perfectly juxtaposing the vibrant looks. This collection is a big one and with so many kit essentials waiting to be snagged, we’d start saving in time for the first drop. And if you can’t get enough Balmain, GRAZIA has just revealed Balmain’s womenswear collection.

Check out the entire menswear look book below.
