The Balmain show will take place on September 27. According to Rousteing, his team will work hard to reproduce the missing photos.
More than 50 items from Balmain’s spring-summer collection were stolen days before the start of Paris Fashion Week. It was reported by Grazia Magazine.
According to the creative director of the brand, Olivier Rousteing, the attackers managed to steal a truck in which the clothes were transported from the airport to the headquarters of the fashion house.
“I woke up smiling this morning as I started getting ready for my next show at 9am and this is what happened… 50 Balmain items stolen,” Rousteing wrote, noting that the truck driver was not hurt and well.
He assured that he and his team will work “day and night” to repair this devastating damage as the show is scheduled for September 27.
“We’re doing it all over again, but it’s very, very disrespectful. There are so many workers, suppliers, my team and I… Love you, my Balmain team, and we won’t give up,” the designer added.
Rousteing ended his message with a request to be thankful and stay safe.
“I wanted to share this with you to remind you: don’t take anything for granted and please be safe. This is the world we live in,” Olivier concluded.
