Balmain director Olivier Rousteing reveals fireplace accident recovery
Creative director of the French luxury house Balmain Olivier Rousteing has revealed he suffered severe burns after his fireplace exploded in his home last year.
In an Instagram post titled “A year ago”, the designer spoke of his healing process, and the struggle to hide his injuries from the world.
Above his explanation, Rousteing shared a photo of himself wrapped in bandages and sporting visible burns on the side of his face. “I did everything to hide this story from as many people as possible and trying to keep the secret with my teams and friends for too long,” Rousteing wrote in the caption. “To be honest, I am not really sure why I was so ashamed, maybe this obsession with perfection that fashion is known for and my own insecurities.”
The Balmain director also admitted that he’d been hiding his injuries during meetings and interviews with clothes and accessories. In the comments below, celebrity friends such as Kim Kardashian West and Cardi B left supportive messages.
Rousteing, who became the director of Balmain at the age of 25, recently celebrated his 10 year anniversary at the luxury brand with a highly commended show. With 6,000 people in attendance, Vogue reports, the glamorous performance also featured a performance from Doja Cat, runway walks from Naomi Campbell and Carla Bruni, and a voiceover by Beyoncé.
Despite his struggles, the designer wrote that he’d been inspired to continue to create during his recovery process, and “worked day and night to forget”. Rousteing’s design was also noticeably inspired by his recovery process, with Vogue reporting that the designer wrote in his show notes, “hospital rooms, bandages and gauze wraps suddenly became a big part of my life.” This inspired a modern take on the classic 2000s bandage dresses, a “minimalist but maximalist” approach, Rousteing said in his show notes.
At the age of 25 in 2011, Rousteing was appointed as the first Black creative director of Balmain. Often facing backlash for his creative decisions, such as introducing a collaboration with H&M, Rousteing’s rise to the top of the fashion industry was rapid and successful. According to Out magazine, the brand saw a 15 to 20 percent increase in revenue between 2012 and 2015.
“Today, I feel so free, so good and so lucky. I’m beginning a new chapter with a smile on my face and a heart full of gratitude,” Rousteing wrote. He also thanked the doctors and nurses who kept his injuries a secret, and helped him during the long process of healing.
“God bless you all and again never never give up! There is always the sun after the storm,” the designer said, ending his post.

At the end of a long day, the little things—a warm bubble bath, a hydrating face mask, a scented candle, or a smooth glass of wine—can have a big impact on your mood. Even the right pajamas can melt away stress and make any weeknight feel a little more special. Although they're on the pricey side, real silk pajamas are the crème de la crème.
For the same reason you might covet a silk pillowcase, delicate silk pajamas are gentle on the skin, thanks to their extremely soft surface. They also feel cool to the touch, allowing you a comfortable night’s sleep. And, of course, the luster of the shimmery fabric and how it drapes on the body is hard to resist and replicate. Because pure silk is a natural fiber derived from silkworms in a time-consuming process, the premium material does tend to be more expensive. If you’re on a tight budget, look for silk blends and satin, which is a weave that results in a similar glossy appearance and can be made with numerous natural or synthetic materials.
So with all due respect to everyone's favorite flannels, if you're looking to splurge on something completely luxurious, the sleepwear in our edit is worth the investment (plus, with clever styling, many of these separates can moonlight as daytime pieces). From silk pajama tops to machine-washable silk sets to affordable silky satin—these are the silk pajamas we find positively sumptuous.

Fragrance Wardrobe: Bee Shapiro on the Scent That Makes Her Feel Like She's on Vacation in Bali
Your perfume isn’t just how you smell—it’s how you feel. Usually, it's an accessory to how you present yourself to the world, but these days, it can serve as a source of comfort and nostalgia during days spent at home. In the upcoming weeks, we're sharing a new version of Fragrance Wardrobe, our series in collaboration with The Fragrance Foundation that highlights the rotating perfume “wardrobes” of tastemakers through key points in their life. In this new take, we'll be asking them to share their favorite scents through the lens of comfort and their at-home routine. Get to know them better via the scents they choose to wear during this uncertain time.
Bee Shapiro has been covering beauty for the New York Times for over a decade. She's written robust rundowns on emerging trends and profiled the fascinating beauty routines of celebrities like Keke Palmer, Serena Williams, and Alicia Keys. If you asked Shapiro what her favorite subject to write about is, she'd quickly tell you fragrance trumps everything else. "I've been a perfume lover since my teenage years," she says. "I find perfume can define so many moments, eras, and memories in our life. From a writer's perspective, scent is so fascinating."
Shapiro's passion for perfume extends beyond writing about it in her column. In 2015, she launched the clean fragrance brand Ellis Brooklyn. The idea for the company came to Shapiro while she was pregnant and growing increasingly conscious about what she was putting on her body. She noticed sustainable and toxin-free fragrances were far and few between. "I felt like I had something to say in [the fragrance industry] that was completely different from what is out there," she explains. "I wanted to bring a different viewpoint—one of a diverse female creator who has a direct lens on what we want to smell like and the reasons for wearing fragrance."
Ahead, Shapiro discusses her fragrance style, the first fragrance she ever wore, and the scents that make her feel the most comfortable. Keep scrolling to get to know Shapiro through her Fragrance Wardrobe.
How would you describe your fragrance style?
I love my fragrances to be effortless. I don't want a fragrance to be overwhelming. I want it to accent and enhance the wearer. I also like to challenge myself to create scents that are appealing for everyday use. In fragrance, it's much easier to create something very niche. But creating something lovable, wearable, and so good you'll want to wear it every day is tougher to accomplish.
What was the first fragrance you ever bought and why?
My first memory of branding and coveting a fragrance was Victoria's Secret body care collection—I wore Love Spell ($15) when I was 13-years-old and graduated to Eternal Sunflower ($24) in high school. I dabbled in Calvin Klein ck one ($79), too—it was so cool then.
Do you still wear fragrances even when you don't leave the house?
Absolutely. I wear fragrances to set or change my mood. I feel pulled together when I wear fragrances. I have always thought we should wear scents for ourselves. Then if we are confident with how we feel and smell, it boosts our attractiveness to others. In contrast, the traditional way of speaking of fragrances was always about attracting others first.
What was your go-to WFH scent over the last year?
I always love Ellis Brooklyn's Myth ($100). Something about the combination of white musk, jasmine, and white cedarwood brings beauty and calmness to my day. I found myself spraying West ($105) more during this time—it's a bold citrus, bohemian scent. It wasn't a blend I reached for all the time before. However, while working from home, I love how Wes would energize my day.
What is the fragrance that brings you comfort?
For me, that would be Myth because it's all the things I think about when I'm cozy: Clean sheets, warm skin, and a whiff of florals in the breeze. If we're talking about everyday scents, I love the smell of cooking rice. It's probably because it reminds me of my childhood. Also, I was in Bali many years ago, and the smell of cooking rice and wafting notes of coconut and spices there around dusk was magical.
What scent makes you feel most powerful?
I love a woody and citrus mix when I want to feel empowered. One of my first tastes of independence was doing little solo hikes in the Seattle area where I grew up. I love scents that smell of being outside when I want to feel strong. From my line, I usually pair West and Iso Gamma Super ($100) together.
What scent makes you feel most comfortable?
There's something about musk that makes me want to get cozy and comfortable. I like to consider the texture of scents as well if we're talking comfort. Myth and Super Amber ($105) are two of my cozy faves. Super Amber is so intriguing because it has this cashmere feel.
Is there a fragrance you spritz on to bring back good memories?
There’s an old-school fragrance I used to wear when I was in law school that I love to spritz when I’m passing through duty-free. I used to wear Jean Paul Gaultier La Femme ($104), and it brings up feelings of youth, exploration, and fun.
What do you smell when you want to unwind and destress?
I'm a big lavender fan. I don't love the essential oil that much because it can get astringent if it isn't mixed with other notes. If I can get my hands on fresh lavender, though, I'm all in.
What’s your favorite candle right now?
My favorite candle is our Pseudonym Terrific Scented Candle ($60)—a Capri fig and sandalwood beauty. It's rich but also escapist. There's something about fig that reads fresh and illicitly creamy.
