Two legendary houses, Chivas Regal and Balmain, have joined forces to drop an exclusive, limited-edition Balmain x Chivas XV collection. Bringing Parisian savoir-faire to Chivas Regal’s 15 year old blended Scotch, the collaboration takes the form of two limited-edition bottle designs, developed by Chivas Regal in partnership with Balmain Creative Director, Olivier Rousteing.
A partnership built on the authentic fusion of heritage, boldness and innovation, the Balmain x Chivas XV collection embraces the shared vision of two pioneering houses – Balmain’s daring outlook on fashion alongside Chivas Regal’s disruptive approach to Scotch. Just as Chivas XV brings a contemporary twist to Scotch by selectively finishing its aged whisky in Cognac casks, the Balmain x Chivas XV collaboration brings a modern twist to Scotch by blending the spirit of luxury French fashion with an icon of luxury Scotch whisky.
Olivier Rousteing explains:
Just like Balmain, Chivas Regal has always adhered to the highest standards with neither house being afraid to push boundaries and break with outdated conventions. Those already familiar with the Balmain universe will note that this unique collaboration includes a signature motif of the house—the oversized golden chain. Whenever I’ve included that eye-catching adornment in my collections, it has served as a bold symbol of the defiant spirit of our rebellious and inclusive Balmain Army – a bold and audacious attitude that both Chivas Regal and Balmain celebrate.
The collection features bold designs from Balmain and Chivas Regal that embody the iconic codes and legendary success associated with each house. The First Drop—of which only six bottles are available in Malaysia—is an extremely limited and individually numbered gold bottle that is adorned with metallic armour and chains in a nod to Balmain’s signature runway pieces. With just over 70 bottles in Malaysia, the Second Drop brings to life Balmain’s recognisable silhouette, through a symmetrical design of chains and belts directly inspired by the house’s recent collections.
The collection will be on display at Balmain, The Starhill until 30 Jan; during which Chivas Regal and Balmain will host a pop-up that will serve a range of exclusive cocktails.
The First and Second drops are priced at RM888 and RM499, respectively. Collectors may only purchase the Balmain x Chivas XV collection by entering a raffle held exclusively at Balmain, The Starhill until 30 Jan. To stand a chance to buy the Second Drop, interested parties may register their interest at the boutique in person.
