Goodbye, Christophe Decarnin. Hello, Olivier Rousteing

26 Apr

It’s official today — this morning, Balmain announced Christophe Decarnin’s replacement. Olivier Rousteing worked with Decarnin for the head of womens wear design studio for Balmain since 2009. That’s pretty much all we know about him right now. His resume states that he graduated in 2003 from the École Supérieure Des Arts Et Techniques De La Mode in Paris and then went off to Roberto Cavalli where he worked for five years before moving to Balmain. Rousteing is described as “a young and promising creative dynamo,” so I, along with the rest of the fashion world, am eager to say what he does for the upcoming season.

Rousteing’s gorgeous — I just really had to throw that out there. Male designers, in general, aren’t that hot in my opinion. They’re chic and have a je ne sais quoi, but Rousteing’s dynamite.

This is only step one in the replacements for lost designers in the Spring season — of which there were more than usual…I see Rousteing having enormous potential and cannot wait to see his creativity in action. And more photos of him. Just sayin’.
