Balmain and Mytheresa have launched their latest capsule collection and it’s sublime. The 25-piece collection of men’s and women’s (mostly women’s) offers riffs on some of the house’s signature silhouettes, prints and pieces from the past.
“It’s easy to recognize that this is a Balmain offering,” Olivier Rousteing, creative director, Balmain said. “You can quickly spot many of the familiar codes of the house, with each given a light and sensual twist for the warmer summer days and nights that lie ahead. There’s my favorite pied-de-poule (houndstooth) pattern, our signature buttons and an eye-catching reliance on golden tones—but I’d say that what truly makes this a Balmain capsule is the attitude that runs through the entire selection. While my team and I worked on this exclusive capsule for Mytheresa, I thought about the Balmain Army—and I made sure that this collection would offer them the type of choices that they would want to be packing into their weekend bags.”
