YES! Olivier Rousteing finally did!!!! After years of reproductions and plagiarism he made a collection totally and completely inspired by Jean Paul Gaultier. And it is sort of understandable, as 3 months ago he passed his time with archives of Jean Paul Gaultier and was guest-designer for Haute Couture collection.
What’s new? Nothing. Just another interpretation of Jean Paul Gaultier, another school work, but this time probably authorized. It was very predictable, and Olivier Rousteing couldn’t claim it as his original work.
And this collection like all previous ones will go the same way – 70% off….
Olivier Rousteing used for preparation of this Spring Summer 2023 colelction the artworks by Jean-Étienne Liotard “Apollo and Daphne”, Jean-Baptiste Frédéric Desmarais “The Sheperd Paris”, and Paolo Veronese “Mars and Venus united by love”, William-Adolphe Bouguereau “The Spinner” and “The Invasion”.
Balmain Festival Vol.3
Next. Balmain Festival Vol.3. Like Balmain Festival Vol. 2 it was gathering people, eating burgers 1h30 before the show. People got bored.
Cher appearance at Balmain Spring Summer 2023
And yes, of course, to make it all successful here’s a good punch, inviting Cher to come at the end of the show. Everybody is talking… I was wondering how much it costs to ask Cher to come? Cher goes to the fashion today: collaboration with Versace, UGGs, now Balmain.
Oh, and by the way, you can buy the tickets to Balmain Festival and Balmain show. And like last year it ended up by catching passing by people and inviting them to come.
Olivier Rousteing stated in his communication: “Each year the festival expands in size and scope. Indeed, in 2019, it began with a concert and a parade for an audience of 1,500 people. Now, in 2022, it brings together nearly 10,000 members of our Balmain Army.” Is it really true? Well… not even a bit. In 2019 there were very few people, as Olivier Rousteing added the tickets cost, announced on Balmain web-site 1000 euros or so. In 2021 there were also few people. We collected some photos from Instagram last year, and published them. See them HERE.
And this year many people indeed came to the show. Ticket cost 20 euros, as some of the lucky guests announced on their instagram accounts.
How cheapish of you!
What is interesting about it all? Interpretation of Jean Paul Gaultier and appearance of Cher.
