Designer Olivier Rousteing, who joined the helm of Balmain in 2011, celebrates his tenth anniversary as creative director of this legendary house with another exciting, forward-thinking signature collection. Perhaps on his 20th anniversary, Rousteing will be aptly wearing clothing from this collection for his space travel.
From the practical to the Brenton stripe suiting and from the hazmat to the aviation-specific outerwear the designer imaginative journey takes us to a place where protection from the elements is necessary. Fur outerwear, aviator jackets, flight suits, padded leather overcoats. and space-blanket gowns are aggressively more Mad Max than San Moritz.
Always fashion-minded, pilot Rousteing includes the cheeky looks for the departure lounge and de-vessel dressing.
The film of the new 2021-2022 Balmain autumn/winter collection, designed by Rousteing was shot in the Air France hangars at Paris-Charles de Gaulle. In this virtual fashion show, two worlds come together to showcase definitive French style and fashion for the next wave of leisure universal travel. Balmain.
