Fashion girls everywhere are in for a treat come January 21 because Balmain is officially launching accessories at its menswear show. With the mega-success of its 2015 collab with H&M, we had a feeling it was only a matter of time before the French brand gave fans something new to get excited about. Creative Director and Kardashian-Jenner BFF Olivier Rousteing confirmed the news to Vogue and calls the new category a "challenge" he was ready to take on in 2017.
While the upcoming accessories range won't be available for purchase until around June, the Balmain army can expect handbags, shoes, and more. The designs will also include a broad range of styles to complement all Balmain girls, from the bold and flashy to more minimalistic. "We have different bags and shoes that are not as expensive for people that might love the Balmain world, but do not have the money for the couture aspect," explains Rousteing. The brand released a teaser video to coincide with the exciting news in which Rousteing models pieces we suspect are from the accessories line—and, yes, there's a lot of gold involved.
Check out the Balmain accessories teaser video below.
