The collaboration, that launches today, is the second for the online giant and the Paris-based label. It comprises of 25 exclusive pieces that riffs on the house’s signature bold silhouettes and prints.


Creative director Olivier Rousteing explained that keeping the codes of the brand throughout the collection was crucial saying, “You can quickly spot many of the familiar codes of the house, with each given a light and sensual twist for the warmer summer days and nights that lie ahead.”

His favourite picks from the drop are the pieces featuring pied-de-poule (houndstooth) pattern as well as signature gold buttons.

“I thought about the Balmain Army—and I made sure that this collection would offer them the type of choices that they would want to be packing into their weekend bags,” he adds.

Olivier and Kylie are close friends, with the beauty mogul even created a special Kylie Cosmetics collection for one of his recent shows and regularly wears his figure-hugging creations.

This capsule is refreshingly toned down from his usual pieces and is ideal for lazy days at one of your favourite hotels in Dubai, or dare we say it – somewhere abroad now that the borders have opened up.
