Bring together Cara Delevingne and Balmain and trouble is all you’re gonna be getting!
“Troublemaker” was the mood in mind, when Olivier Rousteing, creative director of Balmain, and supermodel Delevingne collaborated to create three new Balmain bags.
Cara is the star because it’s clear to everyone that she is the embodiment of the Balmain rebelle—the self-assured troublemaker with an invigorating, new type of rebellious spirit,” Rousteing explained. “Cara reflects the strong and confident attitude of the women of my generation, women who are not content to simply push back—instead, they revel in pushing forward, (while making sure to push every single button along the way).
Cara’s effortless attitude that exudes defiance can also be labeled as non-categorized.. She could be the sweet and romantic soul, while simultaneously a major troublemaker who couldn’t care less.. The epitome of paradox..
Three bags, the BBag, the Romeo and the Twist mark the first collaboration between Rousteing and Delevingne. All three bags feature quilted black leather and gold accents, each maintains an arresting identity of its own. The BBag is effortless yet elegant. The Romeo is intimidating yet whimsical. The Twist is quaint yet empowering.
To want to be two different things at once, this Rousteing-Delevingne collaboration seems to suggest, is not at all impossible.
