Last week, Balmain’s Olivier Rousteing took a trip to L.A. In addition to exploring the city and enjoying the sunshine, the designer hosted a fete celebrating the new Le Pierre handbag (a collaboration with Aurélie Bidermann) at the Chateau Marmont and had a fitting with his Met Ball date, Kate Bosworth. Here, Rousteing shares the details of his L.A. adventure exclusively with

L.A. is such a fascinating city, and this trip was the first time I really got to enjoy it. I love L.A.’s light, its energy, and the cultural diversity. It has such a strong and unique character. Angelinos have a genuine approach to fashion that’s so different from that of Parisians or New Yorkers. They can be so casual but so glamorous at the same time. It was a very inspiring trip.
