Winter is no bed of roses. As we emerge from hibernation, we crave natural beauty and soft colours – no wonder that roses are, as ever, a key theme this spring, in fashion, beauty and beyond. In the show notes for his SS24 Balmain show, Olivier Rousteing explained: “It’s the spirit of the rose – the joy, beauty and love associated with that flower – that’s driving this collection.
