PARIS — Olivier Rousteing, a key deputy of Christophe Decarnin at Balmain, has been appointed designer of its women’s and men’s ready-to-wear collections, the French fashion house disclosed on Tuesday.
This confirms a WWD report on April 22, after a report earlier in the month that Balmain was parting ways with Decarnin, famed for his audacious, ultrasexy and ultraexpensive designs, and would name an internal candidate to succeed him.
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
