Balmain Teddy Jacket: High Octane Glamour
New Arrival For AW19
Steeped in decades of glamour, French fashion house Balmain has become a byword for Parisian prestige and the label’s latest AW19 piece – a luxurious Teddy jacket – does everything to bolster this perception.
Brought to life under the reputable hand of Japanese craftsmanship, this Balmain Teddy jacket is made from a plush blend of velvet and rayon fabric. Cast in clashing black and white hues, the design presents a decisively high-key and low-key construction that’s destined to command attention and the brand’s knack for drawing in the crowds, each and every season, can only be owed to house helm, Olivier Rousteing.
Since taking the reins in 2011, Rousteing has successfully filtered through his penchant for Eastern influences, intricate detailing and powerful proportions, while reinstating the global acclaim of Balmain. With this Balmain Teddy jacket, Olivier fuses the house’s taste for the finer things with a varsity-inspired look – demonstrated by the striped detailing at its collar, cuffs and hemline, coupled alongside bordered articulation at the sleeves which are braided in delicate monochrome thread.
To the reverse, a metallic medallion operates as the literal silver-lining of the garment, holding the label’s rich identity in a crest-like formula, while to the front, Rousteing’s team spirit graduates with the letter ‘B’ woven into the chest. Detail wise, a two-way zip closure will enable the wearer to reveal further luxe layers hidden under the design, complete with the addition of two side pockets for carrying smaller valuables.
Opulent in every way, the Balmain Teddy jacket is drenched in Olivier Rousteing’s deluxe design codes and is sure to be a winner for the streets or elevated occasions alike. Purchase yours at Aphrodite online or in-store now.
