”When your inspiration meets your creation”

Ri-ri stars as the face of the latest Balmain’s ad campaign for Spring-Summer 2014, photographed by Inez van Lamsweerd & Vinoodh Matadin, styled by Mel Ottenberg (Rihanna’s personal stylist), directed by Atelier Franck Durantd and placed in New York City.

This collaboration looks like bringing two loving spirits together, since the pop singer has always been a fan of the renowned French house, and Olivier Rousteing, Balmain’s Creative Director, has always been a fan of hers, often posting her photos on his Intstagram account.


”In front of the camera you make me feel like you were the only girl in the world, you are more than an Icon, you are my inspiration and an inspiration for an entiere generation” said Balmain’s Creative Director Olivier Rousteing. ”When the woman that inspires you wears your creations, your vision feels complete and dreams come true.”

We’ re really excited to find out if the dynamic duo has anything more coming for us.
