Balmain’s Spring 2013 Collection
Rihanna visits creative director, Olivier Rousteing’s Balmain studio:
Rihanna has been traveling all over Europe in honor of her Diamonds Workd Tour. She has visited the apartment if Coco Chanel (here), and spent time with French designer Azzedine Alaïa (here). Now, she has paid a visit to Balmain’s studio. Creative director, Olivier Rousteing decked her out in a few outfits from Balmain’s Spring 2013 Collection.
In this photo, Rihanna tries on a yellow jacket from the Spring 2023 Collection. For the Spring collection, Olivier dug into the Latin theme, calling out Cuba as an inspiration backstage and using its black-and-white tile floors and wicker chairs as reference points.
Pictured above, is Rihanna in the same outfit. But here, we will focus on the skirt she has on from the Spring 2013 collection. This beautifully, designed mini skirt with crystals is in a dark yellow hue.
Here, Rihanna wore another full set from the Spring collection. This time she wore a cropped jacket and a checkered print pair of pants that went well with her Guipure checkered ankle booties from this same collection. You can take a look at another jacket she wore from the collection (here), backstage after her Diamonds World Tour.
Now, lets talk about the booties I mentioned earlier. Rihanna obviously couldn’t wait to wear these babies! She went to Crazy Horse in Paris (here), on these checkered mesh beauties. These shoes run for $1,512 and you can get them at the link below. Review more of Balmain’s SS13′ accessories (here).
