Olivier Rousteing Is Taking The Reigns

A few days late I know, but its still good to see a person of color do their thang in the harsh world of fashion. CHEERS!

After a period of uncertainty, we have the official news: Olivier Rousteing, a French designer who grew up in Bordeaux, is Balmain’s new Creative Director.
Christophe Decarnin left the fashion house following some health problems that stopped him attending the 2011-12 show. The firm has just formalised the role of the new designer, who will oversee both menswear and the women’s collection.
The designer has been a member of the Balmain team since 2009. He previously worked at Roberto Cavalli, designing the men’s and women’s ready-to-wear lines for the Florence-based firm.

Is That KiD CuDi?

If I saw dude on the street I would’ve never have guessed it. Cudi’s my dude, but his head looks hella big in this pic. That Balmain jacket is too cold though. Anyway, these pics were taken at Ace Hotel in NYC for the Best New Menswear Designers in America Fall 2011 Collections presented by GQ and CFDA.
