Olivier Rousteing new Creative Director of BALMAIN!

As the newly crowned creative director of Balmain, you can imagine my surprise when seeing the image of Olivier Rousteing and thinking, ‘why is he not a model?’.

Interesting is the fact that the house of balmain announced last week that a new talent would come to the forefront, someone who was not known to the masses & it seems as though a new revitalization of the french fashion house is waiting in the wings. rousteing has already attained experience working at Roberto Cavalli for 5 years & was promoted to head of design for both men & women’s ready-to-wear. Rousteing has risen through the ranks while being in charge of womenswear at Balmain since 2009. while some forms of hesitation are felt on my part, given the redundancy of design seen from balmain for the last few seasons- im more than eager to see how rousteing’s vision will allow the label to transform. prior to his work in the industry, Olivier had completed studies of fashion design at paris’ école supérieure des arts et techniques de la mode in 2003. French-born, it seems only fitting that olivier take the wheel at the legendary fashion house, that has been in existence since 1945, which expanded stateside in 1951. much like Sarah Burton to Alexander McQueen, Rousteing was reportedly key deputy to Christophe Decarnin & is more than likely is the best fit for the position. exciting new prospects & more for us to watch on the runway. with show season nearly six months away, im sure im not the only one who will be waiting with bated breath. word to Balmain; save some coins & cast olivier for your Balmain homme campaign.

Così come l'appena incoronato Creative Director di Balmain, potete immaginare la mia sorpresa nel vedere l'immagine di Olivier Rousteing, che mi ha fatto pensare: Perché lui? Non è un modello?. interessante è il fatto che la storica griffe Balmain aveva annunciato la scorsa settimana che un nuovo talento sarebbe venuto alla ribalta, qualcuno che non era molto noto alle masse, chiamato per il nuovo rilancio della casa di moda francese, era in attesa dietro le quinte. Rousteing ha già avuto una discreta esperienza da Roberto Cavalli, dove ha lavorato per 5 anni alla direzione prêt-à-porter donna e uomo, e pur essendo alla direzione womenswear di Balmain dal 2009 è cresciuto all'ombra del direttore creativo uscente. Nonostante qualche esitazione da parte mia, data la ridondanza del concept Balmain dell'ultimo paio di stagioni, sono impaziente di vedere come la visione Rousteing permetterà di trasformare questa griffe. Olivier prima del suo lavoro nel settore, ha completato gli studi in fashion design alla École supérieure des arts et techniques de la mode nel 2003 a Parigi. Francese di nascita, mi sembra giusto che sia lui a prendere il testimone della leggendaria maison, fondata nel 1945, e approdata negli States nel 1951. Come per Sarah Burton da Alexander McQueen, Rousteing è stato l'assistente principale di Christophe Decarnin, ed era quindi più che probabile la sua scelta per questa posizione di rilievo. Emozionanti nuove prospettive quindi.
