Are you the kind of gal who loves fashion, but would never sacrifice comfort? Or are you that girl who spends all her free time at the gym and would kill for affordable designer work out gear? Well my friends, today is your lucky day then because it was just announced that Olivier Rousteing is collaborating with the number one athletic brand there is: Nike.
The first news of the collaboration came from Rousteing himself, when he posted some teaser logo images to his personal Instagram. It seems as if the collection will be promoted from the point of view of Olivier as a designer himself, and not so much from the Balmain point of view. That being said, after the long tenure he’s had front lining the brand fans can expect a healthy amount of “Balmain” in the designs.
The collection, called NikeLab x Olivier Rousteing: Football Nouveau, is Olivier’s first solo design venture outside of Balmain. Designed almost completely in his signature black and gold palette, the collection will feature sneakers and clothing for both men and women. Several images of the collection, and a short video, can be seen on several fashion news platforms already (check out highsnobiety’s article). Here at Beccasbags – as the loyal Balmain fans that we are – we can hardly wait!
