Olivier Rousteing — renowned creative director of Balmain for 10 years — pays homage to the recent marking of the 75th anniversary of Pierre Balmain’s debut presentation with Balmain’s 2022 Resort Collection.

Building upon Pierre Balmain’s “New French Style” under the French fashion house, Rousteing reflects and adds modern flair to this season’s Resort Collection that represents his personal upbringing and relationship with Paris itself. 

Whether you’re desiring denim, leather, silk, gauze, jewels, fringe or fur, look no further, because Balmain’s 2022 Resort Collection ticks off all the boxes. 

From the iconic Labyrinth Pattern emblazoned into floor-length coats, blazers, palazzo pants, and shoulder bags to the jewel-encrusted oversized denim jackets and sets, Rousteing combines classic Balmain style with his beloved signature touches. 

With fine aspects in the details of the collection such as poofed fur slippers and chunky chains and jewels adorning glasses and sweaters alike, the men's and women's collection both are a sight to behold. 

Overlapping in style and silhouette, Rousteing merges the men's and women’s looks with oversized ponchos, elaborate tapestry-like draping sets and matching terracotta leather sets.

Coining the term “relaxed nonchalance,” when describing the collection, Rousteing also conjures the feeling of escapism within the designs, citing the influence of the search of his origins and coming to the conclusion that your identity is a constant journey shaped by the environment around you. 

These themes within the collection are shown through intricate patterns and giant hobo bags detailed with fringe, patchwork denim among a kilted short and a leather blazer combined with wide-leg jeans destined to whisk you off to your next journey.

Always known for their bold and fresh concepts, Balmain delivers that essence perfectly with the feeling of these pieces, allowing the wearer to feel their true self no matter what part of the collection they are wearing.
