The superstar has announced that her new high fashion line, called “Renaissance Couture,” will be coming out soon. Beyonce shows off fashion collection co-designed with Balmain.
The Renaissance album is the source of inspiration for all sixteen of the looks in this collection, and each one is named after a track or a song lyric from that album.

It was stated that two of the looks had already made their premiere at this year’s Brit and Grammy awards, with more to be unveiled in the future in the coming days and weeks. The singer who had success with the song “Cuff It” appears on the cover of the April 2023 edition of Vogue France to announce the news.
Beyoncé thanked Olivier Rousteing and Balmain for making RENAISSANCE, the first wearable album, a couture brand. She appreciated them creating with her. Beyonce thanked the chance to appreciate the human form, take creative risks, challenge boundaries, and openly express herself. She also praised Vogue France for believing in their concept and sharing it.
She hailed Olivier as a great collaborator who is continually trying new things. He inspired her as a Black designer who opened doors. She knew they would collaborate on a collection from the minute they met, and she is happy with the outcome. She is pleased with their work and their teamwork.
In the post, Beyoncé showed off a dozen of the outfits, including one named “Break My Soul” after her Grammy-winning song. It’s a black velvet gown with a black chrome 3D-printed bustier that’s meant to give the impression of an exposed torso.
In August, Rousteing, the fashion designer, reached out to Beyonce and her stylist Marni Senofonte expressing his desire to collaborate with them on a couture collection. Rousteing disclosed to Vogue that he communicated his intentions by stating, “Honestly, I want to create a couture collection with you.”
He added: “My hope was that she would be up for something even beyond the work we have done together before, I wanted us to be co-designers. I can’t help but be thrilled by the history-making aspects of this collaboration. This appears to be the first time that a black woman has overseen the couture offering from an historic Parisian house. And those designs were created in partnership with the first black man to ever oversee all the collections at an historic Parisian house. Let’s hope those two firsts help inspire plenty of others.”
He continued, “thank you Beyonce for creating the infectious, joyous music that launched this journey, and for partnering with me to ensure that we designed the collection that perfectly reflected the power of those compositions.”
Rousteing said the collection took five months to finish, with several rounds of sketch editing over WhatsApp, Zoom, and email. Later in January, he spent 10 days in Los Angeles with Beyoncé and Ms. Senofonte for finishing touches, fittings, filming, and editing.
Rousteing also told Vogue that Beyonce‘s strength and powerful lyrics made the first design easy to pick. He even highlighted Beyonce’s stature as a woman of substance.
