Balmain‘s creative director Olivier Rousteing teams up with Jennifer Lopez for the cover story of Paper Magazine‘s September 2015 issue captured by fashion photographer Nicolas Moore. In charge of styling were Mariel Washere and Rob Zangardi.
“My luxury today is feeling free. It’s freedom. I think it’s the most priceless thing. And I’ll tell you the truth: if you ask me, “What about Balmain is luxury?” it’s not the amount of dresses that I did that cost more than $20,000. For me, luxury is feeling free to express who I am and what I want to do. That’s luxury for me.” – Rousteing about what Luxury means to him outside the fashion.
“Everyone has their own definition of luxury. For me, sometimes it means the quiet moments away from the business of my life, when I get to spend time with my children and my family. And I agree with Olivier: freedom of choice is a true luxury. We are lucky to have it.” – Lopez about what Luxury means to her outside the fashion.
