Gisele Bündchen blooms for Balmain’s Spring 2024 campaign

A rose is a rose is a rose is a rose! Olivier Rousteing‘s certainly had roses on the brain, as seen in Balmain’s new Spring 2024 campaign with Gisele Bündchen. Shot by Rafael Pavarotti, the brand’s black-and-white imagery is themed around varieties of the flower—which filled its collection with 3D accents, prints, and more—and its symbolism of joy and romance. The imagery also spotlights Balmain’s new Jolie Madame handbag, referencing the brand’s mid-century postwar designs with a well-rounded flair.

A$AP Rocky & Bottega Veneta team up to celebrate fatherhood

A$AP Rocky is bringing a stylish spin to dad life with Bottega Veneta. The Italian luxury brand has tapped the rapper—who’s also its latest ambassador—and his two sons, RZA and Riot Rose, for a new “Portraits of Fatherhood” series photographed by Carrie Mae Weems. The images find the star, RZA, and Riot Rose playing together and learning to play piano, all in celebration of the importance of parenting and family.

“I don’t think there are many people in my culture who advocate for fatherhood and parenthood,” said A$AP Rocky. “This player persona is very pushed. When you think about a rapper, you think about adolescence, about the single bachelor lifestyle. When you think about A$AP Rocky, you think about a playboy, pretty boy, bras being thrown on stage. This is about me as one-woman man, as a family man. It is about what completes my life now: being present as a partner and a parent.”
