Balmain creative director and French fashion designer Olivier Rousteing has done so much for Balmain to make the elite fashion house accessible to as many people as possible. The line was at H&M stores back in November (albeit for what felt like only a few short minutes) and is now expanding its reach to kids.
Yep! One of my absolute favorites just announced they will be launching a Balmain children’s line in June, with 55 pieces made in-house for boys and girls ages 6 to 14, comprised of mini versions of designs that have been created in previous years’ collections for its loyal adult clientele. However, this should really come as no surprise – Rousteing is Kim Kardashian’s bestie and often sends North one-of-a-kind handmade pieces, making her the chic-est tot on the block. Soon, parents who want to don their mini fashionistas in couture will be able to do the same.
The #BalmainKids collection will be sold in Balmain boutiques and online at Balmain.com. Prices will range from approximately $205 to over $5,000. And if the H&M collaboration is any indication, these styles won’t last long so be sure to follow @Balmain for updates.
“I think I first thought about designing kidswear when I dressed North,” Rousteing tells Vogue. “I had a conversation with Kim, and that was the beginning of how I really understood that the Balmain universe can also belong to kids.”
