Mytheresa and Balmain launch holiday party capsule collection
For the collection, the creative director of Balmain, Olivier Rousteing, has reinterpreted the house's couture heritage with his modern outlook.
The 14-piece capsule was designed for the holiday season and offers confidence-boosting silhouettes featuring cuts, padded shoulders and transparent illusions. It includes bodysuits and cropped tops, dresses, and skirts, in eye-catching shades of silver, bright pink, and green. Completing the collection is a perfectly tailored double-breasted jacket and pants set, finished off with the house's signature embossed buttons.
The capsule launched globally on Wednesday on Mytheresa within a dedicated editorial story directed by Mytheresa chief creative officer Julian Paul, photographed by Sarah Blais, and featuring models Aiden Curtiss and Ana Yarlin Mateo.
“For our third collaboration with Mytheresa, we all knew, from the very beginning what the theme had to be: celebration. Obviously, these are the months when we all get together with friends and family for all the holidays and to ring in the new year,” said Rousteing.
“But more than that, now that it seems like we're finally moving past the last few years' lockdowns, anxieties and cancellations— doesn't it seem so very right to finally laugh, dance and raise a glass of champagne? So that's why my team and I looked to the legendary clubs and the joyous nightlife of the '80s for inspiration—we channeled that festive moment's incredible nightlife, adapting several signature Balmain designs to reflect the dazzling disco era's joy-filled sensuality.”
Most recently, Balmain also launched a clothing and accessories collection, with streaming platform Netflix, for its Stranger Things series.
