With black-and-white features and gentle pastels incorporated into the limited edition stamp, Rousting has reflected elements from Balmain's spring 2016 women's ready-to-wear collection.  According to the French postal service, his design; "evokes a poetic and loving spirit, reinforced by its heart shape."
