The Coveteur has long been one of our favorite portals to get an inside look at the closets of some of our favorite designers, celebrities and tastemakers, but after Rihanna’s nipple-filled night with Balmain, their latest feature has come at just the right time. While at 27 most young adults are plotting their next student loan payment, Olivier Rousteing is in a much better position at the helm of couture designer brand Balmain.
Following the departure of Christophe Decarnin, Olivier, then an assistant, was promoted to head the fashion house, and has flourished ever since. So what does life look like for a 27-year-old man with enviable cheek bones and the whole fashion world at his feet? Pretty damn good. From Instagram photos with Rihanna to endless options of leather boots, and the Coveteur is giving us a look at all of that.
Olivier Rousteing joined the label in 2009, after attending a prestigious French fashion school and working under Roberto Cavalli with a fashion career that began at 18, when he dropped out of law school and left his adoptive parents in Bordeaux.
“I got a little bored,” he said in a 2013 interview with OUT Magazine. “My parents wanted me to be an international lawyer, but I wanted to do something I felt passionate about. I didn’t want to lead a quiet life.”
And he’s living quite the loud life. Check out some more snaps from his office visit below.
