Balmain AW22 collection in photos

Technology is a double-edged sword: It’s facilitated advances in fashion, but has also exposed us to the downsides of a hyper-connected digital lifestyle. Inspired by his own journey of healing from burns and the toxic comments on social media, Olivier Rousteing’s AW22 collection for Balmain explores the idea of safety. Light and delicate touches combine with symbols of security and strength—powerfully protective wraps, shields and gilets—to emphasise that there is protection in truth and transparency, collective empathy and shared hopes for progress.
