Designer Olivier Rousteing takes us backstage at his Balmain Spring 2017 Collection in Paris with Gigi Hadid and his supermodel goddesses Josephine Skriver, Romee Strijd, Sara Sampaio, Doutzen Kroes and Isabeli Fontana. Hair by Sam McKnight. Makeup by Tom Pecheux.
Olivier Rousteing is on a high, with over 4.8 million followers on Instagram, he is a man who is on a mission to bring Balmain to a global audience. In June, news broke that Mayhoola, the investment group linked to the Qatari royal family, bought Balmain—just days before the fashion house’s menswear show in Paris, which will mean expansion and more stores opening around the world. “The Balmain Army has shed its armour,” he said. “Whatever I do, even if I cover up my girls, people can say it’s vulgar. But this is what it is. I think it’s really chic, really French. It’s Paris how I see it.”
