Quote of the day: Olivier Rousteing

“I love seeing a Zara window with my clothes mixed with CΓ©line and Proenza! I think that’s genius. It’s even better than what I do! I love the styling, I love the story… I watch the windows always, and it’s genius what they do today. They go fast, they have a great sense of styling and how to pick up what they have to pick up from designers. I’m really happy that Balmain is copied – when I did my Miami collection and we did the black and white checks, I knew they would be in Zara and H&M. But they did it in a clever way – they mixed a CΓ©line shape with my Balmain print! Well done! I love that.”

It’s not just Phoebe Philo who gets a secret pleasure from high street homages. Balmain’s Olivier Rousteing is a fan too. Via The Independent
