Olivier Rousteing and Cara Delevingne have been collaborating for several projects, ever since their first encounter in 2013, and now Balmain is tapping the model turned actress for another collaborative collection featuring leather goods.
Last year, Delevingne returned to the runways after her break from the fashion world as she opened Balmain’s Spring/Summer 2019 runway show, personifying the collection’s campaign.
As per a press release rolled out by the brand, the collection features three leather handbags designed by Rousteing, further embellished and decorated by Delevingne depending upon the composition of the metal details. One of the three bags, the BBag, will be released today, with the others, Twist and Romeo next in line to come out mid-July onwards.
Strong metallic aesthetics in black and white with the value addition of leather; vinyl and studs with the glamorous touch of satin, sequins and sheer fabrics constituted Balmain’s recent Autumn/Winter 2019-2020 collection, and also provided inspiration for the upcoming collection.
An explosive mix perfectly embodied by Delevingne, as Rousteing underscored: “She has attitude. She’s a troublemaker and she doesn’t care. She’s provocative, but it’s a paradox – she can be gentle and romantic, an angel or a devil. She can’t be categorised.”
A photo and video campaign accompanying the bag’s launch was released yesterday. Shot by Polish photographer Sonia Szostak, three ten-second-long interactive mini films that will let fans choose the endings will be unveiled online.
