Members of the Balmain Army rejoice. Creative director Olivier Rousteing is changing things up at the French fashion house and bringing back their accessories collection. Featuring both women’s and men’s bags and shoes, the pieces will be released on January 21 during the men’s autumn/winter and women’s pre-fall collections and will then be available for purchase worldwide in Balmain boutiques from June 2017.
Having been reinventing and modernising the brand since he joined back in 2011, this is the obvious next step for the Parisian label. Although very few details have been released, the teaser video does hint at there being more to the collection than they have actually announced. In fact the designer himself is seen in the video playing with a gold coin medallion, golden thread and the Domaine collection’s gold-topped hotel key charm, which all represent the three families within the accessory collection the house has said.
