As if we weren’t already in love with Balmain, designer Olivier Rousteing tugs at our hearts with a Balmain kids’ collection. We were able to get a glimpse of what a potential Balmain kid’s line would look like when Olivier custom-made outfits for North West, daughter to Kim and Kanye West. “I think I first thought about designing kids wear when I dressed North,” he said from his studio in Paris. “I had a conversation with Kim, and that was the beginning of how I really understood that the Balmain universe can also belong to kids.” Thanks to North, children everywhere can become an honorary member of the Balmain Army in June 2016.

The 55-piece collection will allow parents to dress like their mini-me’s. Olivier states, “When you see the Balmain children’s pieces, you can see the references that are actually part of the Balmain women’s and men’s wardrobes. It’s easy for me to build the Balmain identity pretty coherently because I’m the same designer for men and women—and not so many houses have the same designer for both.” Expect to shell out a pretty penny for your mini Balmain soldier. The boys and girls collection for kids 6 to 14 will cost you $205 – $5,950! Take a sneak peak at the collection scheduled to be released this summer online and in stores.
