Balmain and Chivas Regal Scotch Team for an Exclusive Drop

Chivas XV and Balmain for An Exclusive Drop of Scotch Whisky

Balmain’s Olivier Rousteing Puts His Design Mark on Two Limited-Edition Bottles of Chivas Regal XV Scotch Whisky

This fall Chivas and Balmain joined forces to drop an exclusive, limited-edition Balmain x Chivas XV collection. Bringing a Parisian savoir-faire to Chivas’ 15 year old blended Scotch, the collaboration takes the form of two limited-edition bottle designs, developed by Chivas in partnership with Balmain creative director Olivier Rousteing.

Just like Balmain, Chivas has always adhered to the highest standards with neither house being afraid to push boundaries and break with outdated conventions. Those already familiar with the Balmain universe will note that this unique collaboration includes a signature motif of the house—the oversized golden chain. Whenever I’ve included that eye-catching adornment in my collections, it has served as a bold symbol of the defiant spirit of our rebellious and inclusive Balmain Army – a bold and audacious attitude that both Chivas and Balmain celebrate.

– Olivier Rousteing

The collaboration is releasing across two drops, each of which takes design inspiration from aspects of Rousteing’s work for the house. The first drop, an extremely limited and individually numbered gold bottle, is adorned with metallic armour and chains in a nod to Balmain’s signature runway pieces, while the second brings to life Balmain’s recognizable silhouette through a symmetrical design of chains and belts directly inspired by the Rousteing’s recent collections.
