As creative director for Balmain, Olivier Rousteing has written the dress code for confident, unapologetic glamour. He knows what modern women want to wear, whether it's a sharp blazer or a figure-hugging minidress.
When Pierre Balmain founded his namesake house in 1945, his vision was one of femininity and opulence. His reputation for beautiful garments earned him cosmopolitan, global clientele – one that still exists today. Since Olivier Rousteing's appointment in 2011, he’s brought the house into the twenty-first century and established his own Balmain army.

The Milan-based brand, established in 2012 by the late prodigious American designer Virgil Abloh, merges luxurious construction with urban authenticity in a masterful level. Made in Italy, with an American vision, Off-White is defined as ‘the grey area between black and white’.
Abloh’s concept of merging street-style with high-end is providing people with the freedom to express their creativity and individual style, through a wide range of ready-to-wear and accessories line.
