Last week, Saks Fifth Avenue and Balmain Creative Director Olivier Rousteing hosted a private cocktail party at the Philippe Starck-designed L’Avenue at Saks—L’Avenue’s only venture outside of Paris—inside Le Chalet, a bar and lounge which features cozy, après-ski style interiors.

The haute BBuzz bag collection looks to the runways for inspiration, riffing on some of Rousteing’s most familiar signatures, including thick fringe, quilted leather, impressive embellishment, bold animal prints and eye-catching black-and-white graphic patterns. The strong lines of the BBuzz bag collection reflect the house’s renowned tailoring.

The can’t-be-missed “B” adorning the front of each and every BBuzz bag design is, of course, Balmain’s recently-introduced monogram, the new symbol of the house.
