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.
In 1995, Canadian twin brothers Dean and Dan Caten established Dsquared2 by blending Canadian cultural symbols with contemporary Italian tailoring. The collections are a fusion of seemingly contradictory elements, such as athleticism and glamour, masculinity and femininity, relaxation and extravagance.
Dsquared2’s daring collections are characterized by modern sophistication with a rebellious edge, designed for fashion-forward individuals who are not afraid to break the rules.
