Designer Olivier Rousteing has enlisted another band of beautiful supermodels for Balmain's Spring/Summer 2015 advertising campaign. Together, Adriana Lima, Joan Smalls, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Isabeli Fontana, and Crista Cober make up the Balmain army and the images shot by Mario Sorrenti show them in slightly surreal situations. Like wearing super sexy bandage dresses while snacking on junk food, playing video games or fighting on a subway platform.
Rousteing speaks often about bringing diversity to fashion, and that subject is on his mind with this campaign too. "Balmain is all about diversity. The incredible power that all those strong women bring in front of the camera, put into real life situations, helped me explore and create a new reality that represents the pop aspect of my generation. The Balmain reality, my reality. This is the new Balmain army and the game is on!" Rousteing said in a press release.
