Creative Director Oliver Rousteing #RTW collection presented in Paris, France has one heck of a model lineup. Balmain brings diversity, stunning pieces and undeniable beauty altogether on one stage.
Rousteing tells Vogue
“I wanted to look at the seventies in Paris—but for me, it doesn’t mean the flares—it means the diversity, when so many strong women, white, black, Asian were modeling,”
“As recent events have reminded us, France has a long and proud history of defending essential liberties . . . that open-minded spirit is also something that sets Parisian fashion apart for fall/winter . . . We celebrate that Parisian tradition as well as the evolution of my city into a truly global melting pot.”
