Brand: Balmain
Age: 28

When you’re only 28 years old and you’re running one of the premiere luxury brands in Europe, there isn’t anything anyone can tell you, really. Olivier Rousteing’s four-year reign over the brand has brought it to menswear prowess with a perfect mix of street and savvy appeal to his designs. Dynamic pieces consistently garner the “grail status” tag, and the premium price tag to match. This is all the more reason to consider Rousteing as one designer who will be around for a very long time making more money he'll know what to do with, but more importantly churning out collections that are deemed classics.
