Discover Balmain’s exclusive pool takeover at One & Only Aesthesis in Athens. From celebrity guests to the launch of the limited-edition 1945 Cabas, dive into a world of luxury and high fashion on the Athenian Riviera

The luxurious One&Only Aesthesis resort on the Athenian Riviera hosted a dazzling pool party, as Balmain took over the pool area in a glamorous celebration. This event was the highlight of the resort’s Grand Opening Weekend, blending fashion and luxury in a truly spectacular way.

Hosted by Balmain’s Creative Director, Olivier Rousteing, the event attracted a crowd of international celebrities and fashion icons. Among the notable guests were actors Liam Hemsworth, Kim Cattrall, Luke Evans, and Gugu Mbatha-Raw; pop star Kylie Minogue; and top models like Jon Kortajarena, Romee Strijd, and Chanel Iman. The pool party and brunch captured the essence of Balmain’s chic style and the luxurious atmosphere of One&Only Aesthesis.

Blending Fashion and Luxury

The collaboration between Balmain and One&Only Aesthesis brought a taste of ‘New French Style’ to Athens. Balmain’s signature Labyrinth pattern transformed the pool area with a unique design featuring interlocking “B” and “P” motifs. This pattern adorned the parasols, sunlounger cushions, floating loungers, and cabanas, creating a stylish and sophisticated look that perfectly matched the resort’s mid-century modern architecture.

A Day to Remember
Guests enjoyed a delightful brunch at the poolside restaurant, Ora by Ettore Botrini. The menu featured gourmet dishes like beef carpaccio, fresh salads, and barbecued seabass. Refreshing drinks, including Aegean Mules, Peach & Spritz cocktails, and Kylie Minogue’s wines, were served as guests mingled and enjoyed the vibrant atmosphere. DJ Mikey Deleasa played live music, adding to the festive mood.

Launch of the Exclusive Balmain x One&Only Aesthesis 1945 Cabas

A highlight of the event was the launch of the limited-edition Balmain x One&Only Aesthesis 1945 Cabas. This exclusive bag, available only at the resort’s NEO boutique, features a relaxed, oversized design with bold golden hardware and Balmain’s iconic logo. Priced at €2,600, the 1945 Cabas comes in black and white and perfectly blends Balmain’s high-fashion edge and One&Only Aesthesis’s luxury appeal.

A New Era for the Athenian Riviera

This pool party was the grand finale of One&Only Aesthesis’ Grand Opening Weekend, a series of events that attracted top celebrities, influencers, and fashion leaders—the weekend highlighted the revival of the Athenian Riviera, a destination once famed for its popularity among Hollywood stars and the international elite in the 1960s.

With the Balmain takeover, One&Only Aesthesis has set a new standard for luxury experiences on the Athenian Riviera. This summer, guests can look forward to more events and enjoy the stylish Balmain-inspired poolside décor, making every visit a celebration of elegance and luxury.
