Netflix calls on Balmain for a limited edition stranger things collection
Balmain creative director Olivier Rousteing recently took a break from his French womenswear designs to capture the bold spirit of 1980s Americana in honor of the Netflix series stranger things. In the Balmain x stranger things limited edition collection, the clothes and accessories exude bright colors and effervescent style codes of the period – think flashy music videos, mall rats and a whole lot of jazzercise – all with Balmain’s expert tailoring. And as strange as this pairing may seem, it is genuine. Rousteing is a real fan of the fantasy-horror blockbuster (apparently, he binges on every new season as soon as Netflix releases them) and has always been fascinated by the essence of the decade in which it’s set. For anyone who can relate, Fashionable Souvenirs become available November 6th.
