Olivier Rousteing is bringing his signature sexy, show-stopping aesthetic to the Victoria’s Secret runway thanks to a brand-new collaboration which unites Balmain and the lingerie giant. The partnership marks Olivier’s first foray into lingerie as the creative director of Balmain is set to create some of the official looks we’ll see during the 2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, which will take place in Shanghai. The news broke on social media with a cool, black-and-white graphic and the hashtag #VSxBalmain.
Not only is the French designer dreaming up looks that we’ll see on our favorite Victoria’s Secret Angels and models as they strut down the runway, but he’s also designing a capsule collection for Victoria’s Secret so that everyone at home can get their hands on some of the #VSxBalmain pieces when it launches in stores and online on Nov. 29. The collection will take Olivier’s high-fashion designs and translate them for both the runway and real life, which means you can expect to see sexy, wearable looks, like lacy silhouettes and form-fitting items.
This exciting partnership is a first for Victoria’s Secret…and, judging by the success of Balmain’s former collaborations, it’s safe to say the items will go quite quickly.
