Beyoncé To Release Capsule Collection With Balmain For Charity

– It has been nearly three months since the iconic Beyoncé performance at Coachella – which we all fondly call Beychella. The set honoured America’s historically black universities and colleges (HBCUs), with Beyoncé being supported by a 200-person band performing on a set designed to replicate the bleachers at a homecoming rally. It was the most-watched live performance of all time, and was a defining moment for women and black people alike, as Beyoncé is the first black woman to headline Coachella since the festival first started.

– After the event, she donated $100,000 to four of these colleges as part of her Homecoming Scholars Award Programme. Each received a $25,000 scholarship for the coming academic year. Since then, Beyoncé has donated the same amount to four additional HBCUs.

Olivier Rousteing (creative director of Balmain) designed some of the dancers’ outfits, inspired by college marching bands. Now, two of the greatest in music and fashion have come together to launch a 3-piece capsule collection featuring two hoodies and a t-shirt from the Beychella set.

Rousteing spoke to Vogue about what the collection means to him and what he hopes it will mean to young black people.

The Beyoncé and Balmain collection will launch on Friday, July 13 in Paris, and will be made available for consumers online on Saturday, July 14 on beyonce.com and balmain.com. All proceeds will go to the United Negro College Fund (UNCF), a charity that funds scholarships for black students.
