It was a busy day for OLIVIER ROUSTEING of BALMAIN who sent down the runway 109 new Spring Summer 2019 looks.
After the show Olivier Rousteing shared: My love for his music has engendered a strong fascination with America and that country’s unique culture, which has always been mirrored in my moodboards, including those of this season. But, while you may spot several takes on Jackson’s iconic wardrobe and other American signatures, what you are seeing on today’s runway is, first and foremost, a French offering. As a child, my dreams were formed by Jackson’s messages of an inclusive America. As an adult, I celebrate my own country’s advancements, values and distinctive culture—which is why this runway includes a multitude of bleu, blanc, rouge riffs on French iconic styles, while relying on the Balmain atelier’s singular mastery of Parisian couture embellishment techniques and precision tailoring.
