From the section of exciting and surprisingly pleasant news, we have some updates for you! To cut the long story short, Rihanna is the new face of Balmain! The results of this spectacular collaboration are planned to appear in magazines as the new campaign shots of Balmain’s spring/summer 2014 collection in January of the coming year. Talking about this teamwork, Balmain’s creative director Olivier Rousteing noted, “In front of the camera, she makes you feel like she is the only girl in the world.” “When the woman that inspires you wears your creations, your vision feels complete,” added Rousteing also calling Rihanna an “icon.”
The impressive Balmain spring/summer 2014 campaign images were shot in New York by skillful duo Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. Mel Ottenberg, who is also Rihanna’s personal stylist, took care of the super stylish combinations, and the creative direction of the campaign was left for atelier Franck Durand. Rihanna is not new for the world of fashion in respect of collabs with fashion brands. The star has had the experience of representing campaigns for Armani Jeans, too. And also, she is a well-known Balmain wearer, opting for the creative suggestions from Balmain for the most impressive looks quite often.
All we can do so far is making guesses about what the newest Balmain campaign will look like. Still, having a couple of ad images available, the concentration around chain details is the first thing we may notice when discussing the top plus denim bottom pair in blue, and the oversized coat with skirt combo printed with pink tartan patterns all over. The luxurious golden jewelry is another point to note here.
Thus, we are impatient to see all the results of this interesting collaboration and to find out all the details having served as an inspiration for the creation of the brand-new line of Balmain.
