French designer Olivier Rousteing is 30 years old and has been the Creative Director of Balmain since 2011. In just four short years Olivier has brought a much-needed fresh take to the Balmain aesthetic and fueled an explosive growth in the brand’s sales and popularity thanks in part to social media. Balmain now has over 2.6 million Instagram followers and Olivier Rousteing has over 1 million followers on his Instagram, the first French designer to do so. His social media presence and clout goes even further thanks to his circle of celebrity friends like Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and Rihanna. The global launch of his Balmain collection for H&M has been Olivier’s personal dream in the making.

“I want to talk to my generation, this is my main aim as a designer. H&M allows me the unique possibility of bringing everyone into the world of Balmain, get a piece of the dream and create a global #HMBalmaination: a movement of togetherness, fueled on a hashtag” 

Olivier has brought the couture feeling that Balmain is known for to his H&M capsule collection – “it’s really a celebration of my couture pieces for Balmain, obviously I changed the techniques, I changed the beading to make it more affordable but I tried to keep the couture feeling“.

Olivier said he wanted to launch the collection in New York City because “America is all about mix and diversity and this collection is all about mixité also – that’s why I think America is going to love it…we’re all about diversity and America is one of the most beautiful countries that is diverse – I’m really proud this collection is launched here in New York“.  The Balmain x H&M collection by Olivier Rousteing will be available in H&M US stores and worldwide, as well as online, starting on November 5, 2015.

“It’s one of those organic fashion relationships” Designer Jason Wu and Karlie Kloss talk to us about their special bond backstage at Jason Wu’s Fall 2015 show at New York Fashion Week.

 Karlie is the embodiment of the Jason Wu woman…we grew up together and it’s really nice to see how we have both evolved“.

“Strength and seduction” was the theme of Jason Wu’s Fall 2015 show and as he explained backstage after the show “there is something polished, grown up and sexy about this collection.”

The inspiration for the beauty look was photographer Helmut Newton and Charlotte Rampling. Makeup artist Diane Kendal used the new Jason Wu x Lancome color palette, keeping the makeup barely there – “It’s really about making the girls looking sexy and beautiful”.  The look hair stylist Odile Gilbert created was also a first “the hair down with a tiny wave in the back”.  For more visit JasonWuStudio.Com

Supermodel Karlie Kloss gives us an exclusive look at Jason Wu Spring 2014 backstage at New York Fashion Week.   “I want women to feel beautiful, adored and like a million dollars“, Jason Wu said moments after the show.  That’s exactly how Karlie Kloss said she felt in the stunning finale dress which was “wedding worthy” and one of the most beautiful gowns she’s ever worn.

The Spring 2014 collection is classic Jason Wu – sophisticated, young and chic. Hair stylist Odile Gilbert‘s slick ponytail gave the models a modern, polished edge. Makeup artist Diane Kendal’s smoky gold, “show stopping” glittery eye perfectly complimented the soft, sand colored clothes. As Jason explained “it felt like all the jewelry she needed – less is more“.  This is the second season Jason Wu has collaborated with Lancome USA to produce a limited edition makeup collection based on the look of his show which is available at Saks Fifth Avenue.

Jason Wu summed up his gorgeous Spring collection “It’s good for the moment, it feels modern and it feels expensive“. Featuring backstage interviews with Jason Wu, Karlie Kloss, Jourdan Dunn, Diane Kendal and Odile Gilbert. Discover more at JasonWuStudio.Com.
