RIHANNA is the face of Balmain. Described as an "icon" by the label's creative director, Olivier Rousteing, the singer stars in the forthcoming spring/summer 2014 campaign.
"In front of the camera, she makes you feel like she is the only girl in the world," said Rousteing. "When the woman that inspires you wears your creations, your vision feels complete."
Balmain is a fashion house that was founded by Pierre Balmain. Balmain was born in 1914 in France. His father owned a drapery business and his mother and sister owned a fashion boutique where he often worked. He always had a love of fashion and an eye for design, he worked at Lucien Lelong and opened his own fashion house under his name.While at Lelong, he met Christian Dior, a designer who played a huge role in Balmain’s career
Here are some pictures from their 2014 fall collection.
Most of the pieces are inspired by some 80′s looks, and some 90's cargo-pocketed designs. The collection is bringing back the safari hues of army green and khaki. I adore the structured peplum jackets and tops.
