Beyoncé and Balmain’s creative director Olivier Rousteing are collaborating for a new couture collection inspired by the singers seventh studio album Renaissance Vogue reports.
Described as the “first wearable album” Renaissance Couture will consists of sixteen pieces corresponding to each song on the album.
Beyoncè and Rousteing spoke about the collection, praising each other for materializing the ambitious concept.
“Olivier is a dream collaborator and a constantly innovating and evolving creative. All that he has done as a Black designer in breaking down and opening doors has been inspiring,” Bey said. “From our very first meeting, to his designs over the years for my performances and appearances, I knew one day I would work with him on a collection. I am so proud of what we created and the synergy that formed between our teams.”
“I can’t help but be thrilled by the history-making aspects of this collaboration. This appears to be the first time that a Black woman has overseen the couture offering from an historic Parisian house. And those designs were created in partnership with the first Black man to ever oversee all the collections at an historic Parisian house,” Rousteing added.
Queen Bey will be Vogue France’s cover star for the first time in April 2023, which is set to hit newsstands on Wednesday (March 29). Check out the viral clip below which reveals more outfits from the collection.
