A month ago, I was pleasantly surprised to find myself on Balmain’s Instagram with a photo of Olivier Rousteing and me. It was so great to meet him– he’s so talented and friendly. The picture was from the interview that I did with Olivier a while back. If you haven’t seen it, check it out here to know more about the inspirations behind Olivier’s designs and what he does to celebrate all his hard work. Happy weekend!
Our interview video with the young and talented Olivier Rousteing is finished and ready for all to see. Please check it out here and let us know what you think! It was really great to meet with him and chat about his inspirations and vision for his F/W 2012 collection. I loved all the details and colors. Thank you again to Candy and Alice at IT Asia Pacific for all their work. What do you think of Olivier and his clothing?

Life is always full of surprises. Whether they are good or bad, we just take them as they come. I am fortunate to have stumbled upon many good surprises though. Like hanging out with designer of Balmain, Olivier Rousteing, and chatting with him before heading to the dinner event for the brand. What a cool and friendly person. Always a great surprise when meeting people. You never know what they...
There’s nothing like seeing new collections being updated online, but seeing them in person is an entirely different thing. The Fall/Winter 2012 collection is so intricate and detailed–it’s a completely different experience in person since you can touch the fabrics and look at all the beading up close. The jackets were my favorite part of the collection with golden hardware and beading and embroidery that mimics Faberge eggs. Which pieces were your favorite?
Shoes, shoes, shoes, you can never have enough shoes. These are the strappy sandals from Balmain’s S/S 2011 collection, snapped in Paris by my fav Tommy Ton. My favorite thing about the collections from Balmain is their attention to detail. I can’t wait to learn more about the new collection and the genius behind the designs in an upcoming interview with designer Olivier Rousteing. Stay tuned for the new CindiddyTV episode!
