“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.” Coco Chanel

Balmain : New Designer Named

Olivier Rousteing, who assisted Christophe Decarnin these past years is the new Creative Director of the french fashion house, few weeks after the departure of one of the most talented designer of this century.

Even if Olivier used to run Balmain’s womenswear design studio I suppose that Balmain was looking for a fresh start naming a still unknown designer.

I barely know the work of that designer and I’m really thrilled to see what he has prepared for the next shows/seasons.

The future will tell us if Rousteing got the guts to face the pressure taking the place of a charismatic character who rejuvanated Balmain.
