Balmain creative director designs jackets for Kim Kardashian's daughter

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian's little girl North has become a top fashion designer's muse at the age of two.

Balmain creative director Olivier Rousteing's has designed a collection of jackets for the toddler.


Kardashian took to Instagram.com to thank the designer after receiving the clothing package in the mail, writing, "Baby Balmain!!! Thank you so much @olivier_rousteing &@balmainparis for making North these one of a kind jackets!!! I'm so honored that Northie is your little muse! Can't wait for her to wear them!!!"


Kim and Kanye already have a history with Rousteing, who selected the couple to star in Balmain's spring/summer 2015 men's campaign.


A big fan of the couple, he previously said, "Whether people like them or not, it's a new world and people need to embrace it. I think Kim is one of the most impressive business women I've ever met. She's got an amazing career, husband and beautiful kid. She's so powerful, but at the same time really humble with good values."


He added, "When I was a teenager I had no reference of any mixed race couples. Kim and Kanye are one of the most famous couples in the world and the fact that Kanye is black American and Kim is white Armenian-American mix offers a great example of diversity. They are what I guess a modern couple looks like today... and North is one of the most beautiful babies on the planet."
