Anybody following a fashion site or two woke up this morning with the news of Balmain H&M collaboration flooding their timelines. To get to know the man himself behind Bamain we selected 5 Olivier Rousteing interviews now on YouTube. Once again Hennes and Mauritz know what you want, while Wang sadly is now so a season away, the almighty Swedish clothing giant has teamed up with Olivier and Bamain, needless to say a hashtag moment ! #HMBalmaination
“I want to talk to my generation: this is my main aim as a designer. H&M allows me the unique possibility of bringing everyone into the world of Balmain get a piece of the dream and create a global #HMBalmaination: a movement of togetherness, fuelled on a hashtag. The collaboration felt extremely natural to me: H&M is a brand that everybody connects to. It calls for unity, and I am all for it” – said Olivier Rousteing
Searching for ‘Olivier Rousteing Interview‘ strangely turns into cat videos by page 9, so to spare you of those find below 5 Rousteing videos you absolutely need to watch.
Mr. Porter takes a ride with Olivier, and asks him to eat something which just looks like a lot of carbs. He says he will eat it ‘later’.
Top model turned celebrity/journalist/writer Alexa Chung is young forever and asks Olivier some very serious and unexpected questions.
Olivier on the other side, interviewing some of his top model friends at the Victoria’s Secret show.
When you sit down with BoF’s Imran Amed you can expect some seriously serious questions. Imran talked to Rousting and Emmanuel Diemoz about the rise of Balmain and it’s digital revolution.
We have covered this one before, and it is one of the best. An almost full hour 1on1 conversation with Olivier where SHOWStudio’s Lou Stoppard gets the Balmain designer to talk some more about Kardashians but also importantly bout racism in the fashion industry.
Needless to say, you should follow Olivier @olivier_rousteing
