Balmain creative director Olivier Rousteing has created a series of custom looks for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show and a special Balmain x Victoria’s Secret capsule lingerie collection.

The annual runway extravaganza, which took place on Monday in Shanghai, featured a series of punk-themed looks by Rousteing teamed with soaring lace-up boots by Brian Atwood.

Alessandra Ambrosio, Lily Aldridge and Karlie Kloss sported high-octane denim versions while Adriana Lima worked the look in more traditional black, Leomie Anderson in suitably heavy metal.

Said boots came teamed with pieces from the aforementioned Balmain x Victoria’s Secret capsule, which is set to launch on Dec. 6 at the lingerie label’s stores. Expect an abundance of fishnet and glitzy diamanté and punky plaid as modelled by Karlie Kloss.

Rousteing joins veteran Victoria’s Secret collaborator Brian Atwood, who has created show shoes for three years in a row. “This season,” he told Footwear News, “it is all about boots.” You can say that again.

CBS will broadcast the Victoria’s Secret show on Nov. 28.
