Rousteing drew inspiration from Bordeaux’s renowned wine region, incorporating grape motifs throughout the collection. From grape-printed dresses to playful grape-shaped handbag charms, these playful details add a touch of whimsy.

Gingham, synonymous with picnics in the French countryside, also makes an appearance. Sparkling gingham evening gowns and tailored separates evoke effortless French chic.

While the collection playfully references Bordeaux, it remains quintessentially Balmain. Fierce jackets, intricate draping, and exquisite beadwork showcase the brand’s renowned craftsmanship.

Rousteing infused the collection with personal touches, like gingham reminiscent of childhood picnics and the presence of his mother, who inspired the trench coats. The collection is both a celebration of his heritage and a testament to his creative vision.
