“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.”
