Beyoncé and Balmain Release RENAISSANCE Couture by Beyoncé x Balmain

Surprise! Olivier Rousteing and Beyoncé have released a collection inspired by her acclaimed Renaissance album. Rousteing was a major fan of the album and came to her with the idea to collaborate. “I could have been using my time to finalize all the details for the September runway,” Rousteing explains. “And I really should have been making more of an effort to disconnect, relax and enjoy my summer vacation. But I just couldn’t stop myself. Day after day, I kept dreaming up and sketching out new concepts inspired by Beyoncé’s RENAISSANCE, the album that had been constantly blaring in my home, office, atelier and vacation rental—and in an endless loop in my head—ever since it dropped in July 2022 . There was no plan, project, or expectation. I had absolutely no reason to be dedicating so much of my time to those drawings, outside of the simple pure pleasure I got from creating something completely new, as I channeled her glorious, joy-filled art into my own.” Bey will be wearing one of the looks on the cover of the latest issue of Vogue France. It’s shockingly the first time she’s ever appeared on the cover of Vogue France.
