Balmain Summer Takeover at One&Only Aesthesis Pool in Greece

Balmain Takes Over One&Only Aesthesis Pool for a Glamorous Summer

A star-studded international fashion crowd, including Liam Hemsworth, Kim Cattrall, Kylie Minogue, Jon Kortajarena, Luke Evans, Romee Strijd, and Chanel Iman, gathered at the One&Only Aesthesis in Greece for a lavish pool party hosted by Balmain’s creative director, Olivier Rousteing. The event marked the launch of a special collaboration between Balmain and One&Only, bringing a touch of ‘New French Style’ to the Athenian Riviera. The celebration featured a live performance by DJ Mikey Deleasa and introduced a limited edition of the 1945 Cabas bag, designed exclusively for One&Only guests.

The pool party and brunch served as the grand finale of One&Only Aesthesis’s opening weekend, which attracted a host of A-list celebrities and international tastemakers. This ultra-luxury resort has rekindled the glamour of the Athenian Riviera, renowned in the 1960s for its Hollywood and jet-set allure. Guests enjoyed the event with refreshing Aegean Mules, Peach & Spritz cocktails, non-alcoholic Americanos, Kylie Minogue Côte de Provence Rosé, and Kylie Minogue Prosecco D.O.C., paired with a bespoke brunch menu by Ora, the poolside restaurant helmed by Ettore Botrini.

The One&Only Aesthesis pool has been artistically transformed to reflect the signature prints and artistic energy of the iconic Balmain house. Inspired by the intricate pathways of French Renaissance gardens, Balmain’s Labyrinth pattern of interlocking “B” and “P” motifs now adorns the poolside space. Throughout the summer, parasols, pool towels, sunlounger cushions, floating loungers, and cabanas will feature Balmain’s instantly recognizable graphic iconography, perfectly complementing the resort’s mid-century modern architecture.

Highlighting the collaboration, the limited-edition Balmain x One&Only Aesthesis 1945 Cabas bag was also celebrated. This relaxed and oversized silhouette, coupled with thick golden hardware and a bold sans-serif house logo, stands as one of Balmain’s most iconic designs. Available exclusively at the NEO boutique in One&Only Aesthesis, the special edition 1945 Cabas, retailing at €2,600, embodies the resort’s timeless and impeccable aesthetic, offered in both black and white colorways.
