Nicolas Ghesquière Mentions Kristen with Holts Muse
Balenciaga has unveiled their new highly-anticipated scent, ‘Florabotanica’. Florabotanica is the third fragrance for the fashion house, following on from ‘Balenciaga Paris’ and L’Essence’. The exhilarating fragrance includes a vetiver, amber and caladium-leaf accord, that is balanced by a (hybrid) rose, carnation and mint accord. The campaign stars Twilight actress Kristen Stewart wearing a structured floral-print dress from Nicolas Ghesquière’s spring/summer 2008 collection for the label and strikes the perfect balance between masculine and feminine—this duality is also beautifully captured by the new scent. We had the chance to chat with Balenciaga’s Creative Director Nicolas Ghesquière about the inspiration for the fragrance and why Kristen Stewart captures the essence of the scent.
HR: The campaign was shot by Steven Meisel and stars Twilight actress Kristen Stewart, why was she chosen to be the face of the fragrance?
Ghesquière: For me, Kristen Stewart has a very unique personality. I had this special project due for a magazine and I asked her to be a part of that story. That’s how we met. The moment I met her I thought she was so Balenciaga and she had such an interesting personality and a great beauty. I began wishing for her to be part of my story so I kept that in mind, and when we started working on this project, I knew it had to be her.
