As part of its communications approach for the current Panamera models, Porsche is working together with one of the most famous faces in the fashion scene.

This is none other than the Creative Director of the Paris fashion label Balmain, Olivier Rousteing, who is launching a video series on social media together with the sports car manufacturer. The series of videos focuses on Rousteing’s exceptional personal story.

Video series with the central theme “Drive Defined”

The short videos will be published on Porsche’s social media channels and Olivier Rousteing’s Instagram channel between the middle of March and the end of April. The central theme is entitled “Drive Defined” and relates to Rousteing’s powerful inner driving force. Many similarities between the fashion designer and the sports car brand also become clear here: Rousteing is renowned for repeatedly pushing boundaries. In this way, he has successfully guided the tradition-rich company Balmain into the young pop world in recent years and turned it into one of the most important Paris fashion houses.

“Olivier Rousteing is not just an authentic Porsche enthusiast, he is also a perfect fit for us with his desire to make Balmain a modern brand with the highest standards of quality and luxury,” says Jelena Batic who is responsible for the cooperation at Porsche. “Together, we explore his exceptional driving force in the films by examining the connection between the worlds of sports cars and fashion, which creates relevance for our existing customers, as well as for younger and female target groups.”

Fascination for Porsche since childhood

“I have a role in my world, to push the boundaries and to establish aesthetics, and a new world, the world that I want to live in,” says Olivier Rousteing, Creative Director at Balmain. “All of this fits perfectly with Porsche – a brand that has fascinated me since my childhood, and that stands for design and tradition combined with innovative strength.”

He grew up in Bordeaux, and then attended the fashion school École supérieure des arts et techniques de la mode (ESMOD) in Paris. In 2011, he started work as Creative Director at Balmain at the age of just 25 – the youngest person to take on this role at a Paris fashion house since Yves Saint Laurent.

VALÉRIE MESSIKA
FOUNDER AND CREATIVE DIRECTOR MESSIKA PARIS

Her motto: create new codes for the French Jewelry.
Her promise: to keep the diamond as a unique stone. Deal!

Valérie Messika, daughter of André Messika, a famous diamond dealer since 1972, discovered diamonds at a very young age.
After obtaining her diploma in communication and marketing from CELSA in Paris, she spent five years alongside her father traveling, searching, negotiating the most beautiful diamonds.
In 2005 she launched her own brand. A contemporary and accessible interpretation of the diamond which is freed from forced exercises like the river or the solitaire. Movable stones, bracelets and necklaces with elastic flexibility, the best-selling Move and Skinny lines play brilliantly on technical innovation and modernity without compromising on quality. Her creations are symbols of femininity, emancipation, power


In 2013, Valérie Messika unveiled her first Parisian Flagship store, rue Saint-Honoré, which houses the finest jewelry and Haute Joaillerie jewelry from the House.
All of the collections are represented by many celebrities who are loyal to the brand on the red carpets. From Paris to Hollywood, the sets shine on Beyoncé, Rihanna, Kendall Jenner,Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron, and more…

In 2015, to celebrate the ten years of the brand, Valerie Messika launched a Haute Joaillerie atelier, to salute the French know-how that was born in the Parisian offices of the house.
From 2017 and 2018, Valérie Messika designed with Gigi Hadid two limited collections. First ‘Move Addiction’ for celebrating the 10th anniversary of the iconic Move. Then ‘My Soul’, more bohemian, which reflects the top model’s personnality.

In 2019, the designer Valérie Messika has chosen to cast three contemporary icons that break the codes of Parisian jewelry : Kate Moss, Joan Smalls and Sylvia Hoeks.
In 2020, Valérie Messika and Kate Moss co-design a High Jewelry collection together.
For 15 years, Valérie Messika has been shaking up the codes of French jewelry, entrepreneur and creative talent, she is now at the head of a company which, thanks to her audacity, has successfully found her marks in an industry so far used to classicism.
