Balmain and Cher continue their partnership as the icon introduces the new Blaze gag
Who better than a trailblazer to front the campaign for The Balmain Blaze. Olivier Rousteing’s luxury label has tapped the one and only Cher to star in the ads for the latest arm candy. The bag takes its nod from protective armor—a theme of the Fall Winter ’22 collection as the designer recovered from suffering horrific burns in an accident—with its exposed hardware, dramatic silhouette, and strong leather. “More than anything else, I wanted the Blaze to be a bag that was definitely going to be noticed,” Rousteing said. “As I explained to my team, I imagined these bags as being key components of the boldest entrances. For me, these designs evoke the impressive shields carried by the fearless superheroes of my youth—and I really love the idea of our Balmain Blaze adding an empowering sensation of invincibility as the perfect final touch for every ensemble.” Enter: Cher, who features in the video and imagery as a futuristic goddess perched atop a throne while dressed in the same catsuit she modeled on the runway during the house’s Paris Fashion Week show. In her own words, “All of us invent ourselves—some of us just have more imagination than others.” See the campaign, below:
