Balmain Paris Hair Couture is proud to announce that they are an official partner of the tailor-made event in collaboration with Balmain and Jean Imbert to celebrate together the essence of Lolla Paris: music, fashion and gastronomy, for a bucolic and musical picnic on Sunday July 19th on the lush green grounds of the beautiful Hippodrome Paris Longchamp.
On an exclusive picnic blanket designed by Olivier Rousteing for Balmain, guests can enjoy a gourmand’s menu of choices prepared especially for the event by Lolla Chef Jean Imbert, accompanied by a delicious bottle of Veuve Clicquot rosé champagne with wine and food pairing, in the unique environment of a garden and in compliance with current sanitary distancing.
Building upon Balmain and Lollapallooza’s long-term commitment to supporting the life-saving work of (RED), proceeds from the ticket sales will be used to support The Global Fund COVID-19 response. Although the confinement may be over here, the COVID-19 pandemic continues to have a catastrophic impact on the globe’s most vulnerable communities, and in sub-Saharan Africa is threatening progress made in the fight against HIV, TB and malaria.
