The Colombian singer, songwriter and actor Maluma @maluma collaborates with Balmain @balmain to create a very colorful collection inspired by a tropical vibe that comes from Maluma’s song Hawaii and his stylish Caribbean spirit combined Miami’s style, with vintage-inspired bright tones, amazing graphics and sharp tailoring pieces, as well as sherbet tones, sexy styling, and ‘90s silhouettes.
The collaboration started last year when Maluma performed his song Hawaii at the VMAs with a neon yellow suit from Balmain’s forthcoming menswear collection. Balmain’s creative director Olivier Rousteing then decided to collaborate with the singer for his tour, but as it was postponed due to the COVID pandemic, they decided to extend their collaboration and present it as a special, limited-edition capsule collection.
“This collaboration represents us merging our fashion and music worlds, and breaking the rules with style, colors, and most importantly blending our cultures together. It’s been one of my goals to work with a respected fashion house on a collection, but this journey was more exciting, as Olivier pushed me to design with him and sketch looks that I personally will wear off the stage and showcase high couture with a bit of Papi Juancho.”Maluma
The collection is now available on www.balmain.com
