Balmain and Mytheresa launch exclusive capsule collection
Luxury online retailer Mytheresa has collaborated with Parisian fashion house Balmain on an exclusive capsule collection.
True to Balmain creative director Olivier Rousteing’s distinctly modern outlook, the 14-piece capsule is all about confidence-boosting silhouettes featuring cuts, padded shoulders and transparent illusions.
The collection focuses on partywear and features sequins and rhinestones across bodysuits, cropped tops, dresses and skirts in shades of silver, bright pink and green. Rousteing has also created a tailored double-breasted jacket and pants set that has been finished off with the house’s signature embossed buttons.
Rousteing explained: “For our third collaboration with Mytheresa, we all knew, from the very beginning what the theme had to be: celebration.
“Obviously, these are the months when we all get together with friends and family for all the holidays and to ring in the new year. But more than that, now that it seems like we’re finally moving past the last few years’ lockdowns, anxieties and cancellations— doesn’t it seem so very right to finally laugh, dance and raise a glass of champagne?”
“So that’s why my team and I looked to the legendary clubs and the joyous nightlife of the ’80s for inspiration—we channelled that festive moment’s incredible nightlife, adapting several signature Balmain designs to reflect the dazzling disco era’s joy-filled sensuality.”
The Balmain x Mytheresa collection has launched globally on Mytheresa within a dedicated editorial story directed by Mytheresa chief creative officer Julian Paul, photographed by Sarah Blais, and featuring models Aiden Curtiss and Ana Yarlin Mateo.
