BALMAIN AND MALUMA ANNOUNCE A SPECIAL LIMITED-EDITION COLLABORATION

BALMAIN AND MALUMA ANNOUNCE A SPECIAL LIMITED-EDITION COLLABORATION

Fashion It happened almost every evening during last spring’s lockdown. After exhausting myself from yet another day of never-ending Zooming with my team, I’d simply switch screens, and try to find some escape via streaming. I’d end up non-stop clicking on the series that I had loved during my childhood—and I know that I am far from being the only one who found a bit of comfort in nostalgia during that stressful period. After so many nights spent with so many classic episodes... well, it was no surprise to see the bright tones, sharp tailoring and incredible graphics that defined my favorite ‘80s and ‘90s programs eventually work their way into my most recent designs.   My friend Maluma was quick to note that Balmain’s new relaxed Miami Vibe—with all those pastels and eye-catching patterns—was a perfect match for his distinctive style and addictive beat. And, after he was photographed giving a perfect Caribbean twist to one of my modern takes on the classic French petit-pois pattern, Maluma began working with me to create a one-of-a-kind tropical look for last year’s Video Music Awards. We ended up riffing on the sherbet tones, sexy styling and ‘80s silhouette of Crockett and Tubbs for Maluma’s amazing performance of Hawái, during last August’s show.   And, after the success of that VMA appearance, we knew we had to push our partnership further.   That’s when Maluma and I began working closely together on a whole new line of designs intended for his tour. And, although the pandemic might have forced a rescheduling, we’ve decided to release our Balmain-Maluma collaboration as a special, limited-edition collection. Those one-of-a-kind Balmain-Maluma sneakers and ready-to-wear designs will be available across the globe, on April 12th.   At the same time that Maluma and I were working on these designs, the speakers inside the Balmain atelier were blasting out a continual loop that both inspired and reflected our work. I’ve pulled that selection of tunes together for our collaboration’s special playlist, which is now available on the Apple Music Signature platform. This Balmain-Maluma seamless mix of music and fashion makes perfect sense, of course. It reflects this house’s distinctive DNA, in which music and fashion are thoroughly intertwined—and neither Maluma nor I could ever conceive of fashion without a full helping of music (or vice-versa). - Olivier Rousteing    I released two albums in eight months, and no one was expecting that. First, Papi Juancho, with all those vintage Miami Vice vibes, and then I went to Jamaica and fell in love with the culture there. I feel like Olivier and Balmain does that, too, by trying to change the rules of the game every time you want to play it. This collaboration represents us merging our fashion and music worlds, and breaking the rules with style, colors and mostly importantly blending our cultures together.   It’s been one of my goals to work with a respected fashion house on a collection, but this journey was more exciting, as Olivier pushed me to design with him and sketch looks that I personally will wear off the stage and showcase high couture with a bit of Papi Juancho. This process was exciting as I have always dreamt to design one day, and I was happy to have a friend like Olivier let me express creatively through fashion. - Maluma   It happened almost every evening during last spring’s lockdown.

Exploring Maldives with Oumayma Elboumeshouli

Travel I had the opportunity to travel to the Maldives and stay at the beautiful Standard Resort. The resort is not just a typical Maldivian couple resort, there are plenty of activities and details that attract the younger crowd. I’m taking you with me on the journey through a photo-diary I shot. - Oumayma     Getting to the resort:   A breathtaking 35-minute sea plane ride away from Velana International Airport,The Standard, Huruvalhi is nestled between the Raa and Baa Atolls, on a naturally protected island. Guests can also take a combined 20-minute domestic flight to Dharavandhoo and 35-minute speedboat ride to the resort.     The resort:   The resort has 115 overwater and beach villas, each with its own infinity plunge pool and private lounge deck with direct access to the lagoon, ocean or beach. A glittering disco ball strategically perched above the soaking bathtub in every villa bathroom makes for a signature Standard statement piece and serves as a reminder that you really can party anywhere and at anytime of the day at The Standard. As I already mentioned, there are plenty of activities to do besides throwing your own party. The resort has 3 restaurants and 2 bars and everything is on walking distance. The part I loved the most about the resort is the beautiful sunset view at the BERU bar. Each room as water activity equipments to use.         The situation currently:   Traveling to the Maldives is currently safe. As long as you fill in an online form and show a negative PCR result you can enter the country. Unfortunately the capital is still on a lock-down, so I highly recommend to go directly to your resort.      Visit their website here: https://www.standardhotels.com/maldives/properties/huruvalhi I had the opportunity to travel to the Maldives and stay at the beautiful Standard Resort.

BALMAIN ANNOUNCES THE LAUNCH OF ITS NEW PODCAST SERIES, L’ATELIER BALMAIN

Fashion Balmain is proud to announce the launch of the first season of L’Atelier Balmain, the house’s new podcast. Each episode of the 10-part series concentrates on one key aspect of Balmain’s extraordinary history, celebrated signatures and singular DNA. As the podcast travels from Saint- Jean-de-Maurienne, (the small Alpine village where Pierre Balmain was born just before the beginning of the First World War), to 44, rue de François Premier, (the iconic Parisian address where the designer’s eponymous couture house was born just as the Second World War was ending), Balmain’s Creative Director Olivier Rousteing joins with fashion’s leading writers and historians to investigate and discuss the key themes, personalities and design moments that set the 75-year-old house apart.     The first season of L’Atelier Balmain begins with a recounting of the province-to-Paris pathways of the house’s first and most recent Creative Directors. The episode highlights how a mix of sheer will, hard work and extraordinary talent enabled both Pierre Balmain and Olivier Balmain to convert childhood dreams into reality.     In the podcast’s second episode, which concentrates on the importance of heritage for the house, Olivier Rousteing makes clear that one cannot separate the house’s distinctive codes and easily recognized silhouette from its unique history of optimism and audacious daring.     L’Atelier Balmain’s third episode concentrates on the risks, struggles and bold moves behind Pierre Balmain’s very first collection for his newly established house. Three-quarters of a century ago, that brief fashion moment helped open the door to a new, golden age of post-war Parisian couture. And what Alice B Toklas defined as Balmain's distinctly New French Style would also help to establish the firm foundations that the house of Balmain continues to build upon today.   The upcoming fourth episode relies on a group of leading fashion historians, experts and authors, to highlight the many design and cultural icons who attended that first show, praised the collection and helped guarantee the success of one of the Paris fashion world’s biggest post-war stars—Pierre Balmain.   Future podcast episodes in the first season will shine the spotlight on the muses, monarchs and models associated with the house, as well as the inner workings of both Pierre Balmain’s and Olivier Rousteing’s Balmain. The L’Atelier Balmain podcast is now available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify Podcasts, Youtube and at balmain.com.

Graduates of the Amsterdam Fashion Academy make graduation fashion movie

Graduates of the Amsterdam Fashion Academy make graduation fashion movie

Fashion What happens when twelve talented designers can’t show off their graduation collection due to a pandemic? Exactly, they come up with a solution, as one might expect from a bunch of creative youngsters ready to take over the world of fashion. The Amsterdam Fashion Academy decided to take a different approach and came up with the idea to make a fashion movie to celebrate the graduates once the news came out that the usual graduation fashion show could not take place. The final result which the students premiered on the 6th of April via livestream for their family and loved ones is a stunning fashion movie that celebrates the talented and vision of these twelve graduates.     WATCH THE FILM HERE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RXeWqp7b7oA&t=1s   As soon as the Amsterdam Fashion Academy and its graduating students, who come from six different countries, heard that the annual graduation show that should have taken place in June of 2020 could not happen due to COVID-19, they came up with other ideas that would provide them a platform to showcase the final collections to the public. Therefore, the Amsterdam Fashion Academy, the graduating students and the Amsterdam-based RISE Agency joined forces realising a fashion movie that highlights some of the pieces from each of the twelve collections. Over the course of three long days, the movie was shot at different exceptional locations, such as the Berlage Stock Exchange, Frederiksplein and inside the beautiful building the Amsterdam Fashion Academy is located. Students of the Arts of Colors school where in charge of the hair and make-up. The final outcome is a modern music video-like film that represents the perfect chance to show the collections and the talent of these young fashion designers to the world.       Watch the fashion movie of the Amsterdam Fashion Academy graduates here   Deborah Pulleyblank, Academic Director, comments: “It is in the DNA of the Amsterdam Fashion Academy to be inclusive and supportive. Therefore, we have involved also current students from all our programmes in the production of the film, who participated as models or in the backstage”.     The graduates about their collections (in order of appearance):   Rebecca van Caem (The Netherlands/Spain) “La Feria” is a collection based on a week full of tradition, pride and culture for all of the national Spanish people.  Alexandra Poláková (Slovakia) “The women’s collection is based on a subtle combination of modern tailoring techniques. The collection embraces the heritage of crafting by using traditional crochet techniques.  Maria Sole Novelli (Italy) “Teddy-Army” is a menswear collection inspired from the Teddy movement in England meeting practicality chic and street.One of the main focus was to use fabric made out of food waste and this is why I used pineapple leather. I created my own camouflage print using pixelated pictures taken from some primary research.  Sabrina Marinus (The Netherlands) “Royal sweetness” is about breaking the rules and being yourself with no apology. By embracing the feminine body, we dare to make statements, we don't have to hide from.  Gabriella Frempong (The Netherlands/Ghana) This collection empowers and reconstruct the female power and strength inspired by the cultural heritage from Ghana, in western silhouettes.  Tricie Bergmann (Austria) For games, character design depends heavily on silhouette, as it is the first introduction to a character the player receives. Therefore, for this collection, the shapes and features of six Dungeons & Dragons races were studied to find the initial silhouettes.  Ellen Hawes (Great Britain) The collection is inspired by my grandad who passed away. His garden was his most prized possession so this I came up with this concept as a kind of memorial for him.  Sophia Pohlmann (Austria) This collection is inspired by movies from the ‘70s, such as Dog Day Afternoon and Taxi Driver. Silhouettes and designs remind ‘70s style icons such as Mick Jagger and David Bowie.  Robin Hubert (The Netherlands) The beginning point of the concept of my collection is the Amazon rain forest, especially focussed on the fires that have been happening in 2019. My aim for this collection is to make people more conscious about the bad influence we have on nature and environment, and how bad the consequences are if we keep polluting the Earth.  Cristina Noya (Spain) My collection, which is about human alter egos, simulates different personalities: the outside visually looks unpleasant but the feeling is actually comfortable. This is all achieved with macrame technique.  Merel van der Laak (The Netherlands) For the design of my final collection 2020 I chose to focus this project on colour, illustration and prints. A big source of inspiration for me is looking at interior design and this will be reflected in the my collection.  Edurne Goikoetxea (Spain) The main inspiration for this “Dotes” is the great Italian painter Caravaggio. On the one hand, the collection is inspired by his excellent technique, and unique shapes and colours, constantly used and implemented in his paintings. On the other hand, the influence of his disturbed personality and his dark thoughts and behaviours.     The Amsterdam Fashion Academy The Amsterdam Fashion Academy (AFA) is a private international top-flight fashion university that offers university-level Bachelor’s degrees with Honours in Fashion Design and Fashion Business, both accredited by the reputable Buckinghamshire New University in the England. Amsterdam Fashion Academy has been acquired by Luiss Business School in January 2020. Luiss Business School based in Rome, is part of the Luiss University, a prestigious and world-renowned private university affiliated with the biggest Italian employers’ organization, Confindustria.   The different between AFA and other schools is that AFA is a dedicated hub of small- scale, student-centred learning in a personal and supportive environment. This ensures that every single student counts and is treated as an individual. All students at AFA are unique with their own needs and talents which AFA fosters, supports and assist, so they can all develop to their full potential. What happens when twelve talented designers can’t show off their graduation collection due to a pandemic? Exactly, they come up with a solution, as one might expect from a bunch of creative youngsters ready to take over the world of fashion. The Amsterdam Fashion Academy decided to take a different approach and came up with the idea to make a fashion movie to celebrate the graduates once the news came out that the usual graduation fashion show could not take place. The final result which the students premiered on the 6th of April via livestream for their family and loved ones is a stunning fashion movie that celebrates the talented and vision of these twelve graduates.     WATCH THE FILM HERE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RXeWqp7b7oA&t=1s   As soon as the Amsterdam Fashion Academy and its graduating students, who come from six different countries, heard that the annual graduation show that should have taken place in June of 2020 could not happen due to COVID-19, they came up with other ideas that would provide them a platform to showcase the final collections to the public. Therefore, the Amsterdam Fashion Academy, the graduating students and the Amsterdam-based RISE Agency joined forces realising a fashion movie that highlights some of the pieces from each of the twelve collections. Over the course of three long days, the movie was shot at different exceptional locations, such as the Berlage Stock Exchange, Frederiksplein and inside the beautiful building the Amsterdam Fashion Academy is located. Students of the Arts of Colors school where in charge of the hair and make-up. The final outcome is a modern music video-like film that represents the perfect chance to show the collections and the talent of these young fashion designers to the world.       Watch the fashion movie of the Amsterdam Fashion Academy graduates here   Deborah Pulleyblank, Academic Director, comments: “It is in the DNA of the Amsterdam Fashion Academy to be inclusive and supportive.
