Rammstein super-fan, Demna Gvasalia is flipping the script with Balenciaga's latest capsule collection and Apple Music playlist.
The Balenciaga director is frequently spotted in a Ramstein tee, and now the German Industrial band is getting its own capsule collection with the luxury house. Tees and oversized hoodies, distressed baseball caps, bumbags, and a backpack receive the band’s logo treatment. The raincoat is a standout piece, as is the long-sleeved tee.

Demna and his team even reached out to some of the group's diehard fans to model the limited-edition unisex capsule. Balenciaga sent photographer Patrick Welde to the shoot Helena, Mona, and Torsten in their respective homes amongst their extensive collection of Rammstein merch and ephemera.
The collection coincides with Balenciaga's forthcoming Apple playlist. This time around they've tapped — you guessed it — Rammstein to select the tracks. As an official curator on Apple Music, Balenciaga selects artists to create original playlists, starting with Gvasalia. “Demna's Playlist” incorporated Sade, The Fugees, Radiohead, and, of course, Rammstein.
Rammstein's playlist is similarly eclectic, with tracks from The Stranglers, Lana Del Rey, Slipknot, and Vegyn. Check it out below.
