Travelers who find a sense of escape through fashion will be drawn to the Balmain Fall 2021 collection, which is full of fun pieces like neck-pillow earrings and paper-plane suitcase charms. Fueled by wanderlust, the collection includes versatile parka jackets, long trench coats and practical boots for touring in style. Naturally, the travel-themed collection also included plenty of handbags and trunk backpacks to help people jet off to new places as soon as they are able. As Olivier Roustein puts it, “I don’t know where we’re going, but I do know that we are going somewhere. The point is not the destination but the actual going—the journey, the leaving, and the escape.”
As a homage to travel, the collection was unveiled inside a spacious hangar at Charles de Gaulle Airport, and models walked on airplane wings.
