BALMAIN X DIAMOND FOUNDRY COLLABORATE ON THE PFW RUNWAYS

Parisian fashion house Balmain  has reccently collaborated with Diamond Foundry,the world’s only certified carbon-neutral diamond producer. Together, the brands created the Balmain x Diamond Foundry earring, relying on the latter’s  unique gemstones. The earrings  hit the runway during Balmain’s Paris Fashion Week show on September 27.

The collaboration comes at a poignant point in fashion, one in which “sustainability” and “carbon footprints” have bled into the mainstream vernacular of both designers and consumers. Diamonds, in particular, have an outsized environmental and social impact. Diamond mining has often led to exploitative labor practices, soil erosion, and deforestation.
