“Oooh, look, it’s Balmain!, said EVERYONE!
On the eve of opening Balmain’s New York flagship, Olivier Rousteing hits the town with Lynn Yaeger.
“Oooh, look, it’s Balmai!n” shrieks a person, whose gender it is impossible to discern in the dark, at the GMHC Latex Ball. Despite the lack of light, the fan insists on a selfie with Olivier Rousteing, and the creative director of Balmain—on a flying visit to his beloved Manhattan from his home in Paris—is happy to oblige.
Rousteing, 30, is in town in anticipation of two major brand-building events. There is the imminent opening of the new Balmain boutique in the U.S., being erected in the heart of SoHo. Designed by Studio KO, the team responsible for London’s Chiltern Firehouse, the shop is meant to evoke an imaginary pied-à-terre that might have belonged to Pierre Balmain, down to the mid-century-modern French furniture. And at the other end of the spectrum—but maybe not!—there’s the just-launched Balmain x H&M collaboration, which offers the designer’s cool, sexed-up vision at extremely reasonable prices.
We’ve already examined whether one must have a pedigree to work at Vogue(short answer: no, though there are some elite commonalities among staffers). So today we’re turning our eye toward a more specific angle: what it might take to become employed by the magazine’s leader herself, Anna Wintour. Much has been made of working under the fashion industry’s most influential woman—insert The Devil Wears Prada reference here—and since rumors and legend are only so satisfying, we decided to gather insight straight from the source herself. We gathered Wintour’s best quotes—some specifically on employee qualities she admires and others that are abstract remarks on traits she respects—to piece together a picture of the editor in chief’s ideal team member.
If you’ve ever dreamed about working at Vogue or if you simply find Wintour intriguing, scroll down to check out what she might be looking for the next time she makes an addition to the masthead.
