Balmain and Chivas Combine Fashion and Whisky
Balmain lends its Parisian flair to the luxury Scotch whisky brand for an opulent reimagining.
Chivas and Balmain have partnered up to release an exclusive Balmain x Chivas XV collection. Developed by Chivas in partnership with Balmain creative director, Olivier Rousteing, the collection features two limited-edition bottle designs. The collection launches worldwide today (October 5).
The collaboration sees Balmain bringing a Parisian savoir-faire to the famous Scotch through this partnership. The collection is a fusion of heritage and innovation and embraces the shared vision of the two houses.
Explaining the collaboration in a press release, Rousteing said: “Just like Balmain, Chivas has always adhered to the highest standards with neither house being afraid to push boundaries and break with outdated conventions.”
The collection will see two drops, the first of which is not for sale and features extremely limited and individually numbered gold bottles. The bottles are adorned with metallic armour and chains, which is a nod to Balmain’s signature runway pieces.
The second drop brings to life the fashion brand’s iconic silhouette through an asymmetrical design of chains and belts. This drop has a limited quantity for sale on a first come first serve basis, with the design being released in December.
To celebrate the launch, Chivas and Balmain will be inviting fans to participate in a series of activations worldwide alongside the Balmain Army. Balmain x Chivas XV billboards will be unveiled in numerous cities along with a fashion film. A bottle bag designed by Balmain’s accessories team will be gifted to the Balmain Army for the celebration.
