Balmain Designer Olivier Rousteing Reveals He Was Severely Burned Last Year After A Fireplace Explosion

Olivier Rousteing, the creative director of Balmain, opened up well-nigh a near-fatal accident.

On Saturday, the 36-year-old malleate designer revealed that he was severely burned and scarred without a fireplace exploded in his home a year ago. Alongside an Instagram photo showing bandages tent his unshortened soul and his shrivel marks, he wrote:

“I finally finger ready to share this. I’ve been hiding this for too long and it’s time for you to know. Exactly a year ago, the fireplace inside my house exploded. I woke up the next morning in Paris’ Hôpital Saint Louis. The talented staff at that famous hospital, which was dealing with an incredible number of COVID cases at that same time, took wondrous superintendency of me. I cannot thank them enough.”

Wow, we cannot imagine how scary that moment must have been! Rousteing then confessed he attempted to pension the incident a secret for so long due to feeling “ashamed” well-nigh his injuries:

“I did everything to hibernate this story from as many people as possible and trying to pension the secret with my teams and friends for too long. To be honest I am not really sure why I was so ashamed, maybe this obsession with perfection that malleate is known for and my own insecurities…”

During his recovery, the versifier shared he primarily focused on his work in order to “forget” what he endured:

“I just worked days and night to forget and creating all my collections, trying to pension the world dreaming with my collections and at the same time hiding the scars with squatter masks, turtlenecks, long sleeves and plane multiple rings on all my fingers through many interviews or fotoshoots [sic].”

He continued:

“And I truly realized that the power of social media is to reveal only what you want to show ! Kind of permitting us to create our own special narrative that avoids what we do not wish to see or show: this is our new world.”

Back in September, Rousteing made his first public visitation in scrutinizingly a year for his Balmain Spring/Summer 2022 show during Paris Malleate Week. And in his post, he thanked everyone who helped him bring his creations to life:

“Now, a year later — healed, happy and healthy. I realize how truly happy I am and I thank GOD everyday of my life. My last show was well-nigh the triumph of healing over pain and I thank all the models the productions my team the models my Balmain family, my friends that came and supported not only my 10 years of Balmain but my rebirth.”

To conclude, he expressed:

“Today, I finger so free, so good and so lucky. I’m whence a new installment with a smile on my squatter and a heart full of gratitude. To the doctors and nurses at Saint Louis, and to all those who helped me during this long recovery and kept my secret : a profound thank-you. I love you. GOD BLESS YOU ALL and then never never requite up ! There is unchangingly the sun without the storm.”

Truly unflinching for sharing his story. Several of Rousteing’s friends hopped in the comments section to offer their love and support, including Kim Kardashian who wrote:

“I love you.”
