COACHELLA 2018: BEYONCE x BALMAIN
French fashion house Balmain teamed up with pop superstar Beyonce for the collection that singer and her dancers and musicians wore at her Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival performance on April 14.
“I met my match with Beyoncé. My obsession with perfecting every tiny element of every runway is matched by hers for perfecting every tiny element of every performance—and, when one perfectionist teams up with another, the results can be pretty incredible.
Beyoncé, her stylist Marni Senofonte and I worked closely together for several weeks to, yes, perfect this collaboration—and I loved every second of it. I will be forever grateful that I had this opportunity to briefly click off from collections and concentrate solely on how best to mix what I can offer with the amazing talent, drive and vision of Beyoncé. I doubt that I will ever forget the joy of working with her and her team—or the awe I felt watching Beyoncé masterfully direct her on-stage troops or the beauty of listening to that extraordinary voice as she rehearsed.” – Olivier Rousteing
