It was disco themed, naturally

Emirates Woman jetted to Paris for an exclusive disco party at trendy club Les Bains, to celebrate Olivier Rousteing’s exclusive Balmain collection for Mytheresa. The 33 year-old Creative Director and Kardashian bestie, has re-imagined 10 of his signature Balmain pieces for the German-based luxury fashion site.

Rousteing, the youngest Creative Director in Paris since Yves Saint Laurent, hosted the party with supermodel pal Natalia Vodianova and his Balmain clad influencer-army that included Linda Tol, Erika Boldrin, Lottie Moss and Mollie King.

Les Bains, the nightclub who’s played host to Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista and Jean-Paul Gautier in the past was transformed into an 80s disco, mirroring the metallic theme of the capsule collection. French DJ and producer Kiddy Smile rocked the decks, blasting out re-mixed versions of Britney Spears, while Olivier cheekily danced into the camera and entertained his celebrity guests.  With his flair and charm it’s easy to see how the designer, who has been at the helm of the French fashion house for the past six years has helped Balmain evolve into the socially iconic brand that it is today.
