B iii - crystal clear & gold

Inevitably, each Balmain runway includes several strong silhouettes inspired by the music that was blaring 24/7 in the house s studio, as the design team was creating that season s col- lection. The bold lines of the B-III un- derline the unique melding of modern rock and Parisian heritage that is such an integral part of Olivier Rousteing s Balmain—for, as the designer explains, it s impossible to separate music and fashion. That completely intertwined mix of the two... it s simply how my ge- neration grew up. The rock styling of the Balmain Eyewear is a reflection of how both Balmain and Akoni embrace that distinctive dual dynamic.
