Balmain Says 'Relax'

According to Balmain's Spring/Summer 2014 collection, the Eighties are back and better than ever.

The Nineties may currently be having a moment -- but the collection Balmain on Thursday proved that the Eighties may be primed for a comeback as well. There were quilted bomber jackets with oversized gold buttons, power suits in a variety of plaids and houndstooth, as well as chunky gilded chokers. Standouts included pinstripe overalls paired with a simple white button-down, as seen on Joan Smalls, and a silver and denim off-the-shoulder top paired with a chic version of "mom" jeans. Plus, the models paraded to quintessential 1980s hit "Relax" by Frankie Goes to Hollywood. Talk about a major Zoolander moment.
