Balmain teams up with MyTheresa on exclusive collection

Unveiled in Paris last night
Balmain has teamed up on an exclusive collection with e-commerce platform MyTheresa and yes, it's as cool as you would imagine...

Overnight, MyTheresa held a glamourous party in the heart of Paris to fete its newest collaboration with Balmain. Designer Olivier Rousteing was in attendance as the 10-piece capsule was unveiled. Hitting the site today, the collection is quintessentially Balmain: sleek, sexy and celebratory of the female form — in fact, the 10 pieces are basically a ‘biggest hits’ rework from the designer. 

Rousteing said of the pieces, “All of these hold a special memory for me, so it is really impossible to pick a certain favourite from this small group — it was hard enough to specify just these 10! My team and I put so much time and effort into each collection, but, of course, there’s always one or two specific pieces that always stay with me, even years after I first showed them on the runway. They’ve helped embody a spirit and often served as the first of a whole series of looks that were later built upon that one particular look. These are all looks whose power managed to last more than a single season, often inspiring several distinct iterations.”

The collection consists of three dresses (two with sleeves, and one without), two tweed skirts with the brand’s signature gold button detailing, a blazer (naturally), two bouclé jackets (one short and one long), a sweatshirt and a cotton top. The pieces are finished in either a soft grey or white (or a combination of both as seen on the tweed blazer and skirt), and there’s also fringe detailing present on some of the items for added flourish.
