• “Sexy & Glamour”


    Architecture, the quintessence of chic, sophisticated glamour and elegant, this is how Balmain has been defined since its creation by Pierre Balmain in 1945.

    The favoured brand of stars and royalty, until Pierre Balmain´s death, it was long a competitor of Dior and Balenciaga.

    In 2006, Christophe Decarnin awakened the sleeping beauty. He restored the brand´s former aura and launched new codes of a glamorous and sexy fashion. He focused on designer eveningwear, restoring Balmain´s elitist spice. He successfully encapsulated what he had inherited from Pierre Balmain and modernized the image. Each year he imposes must-have pieces such as leopard print, military jackets, ultra short skirts or bejewelled dresses. In March 2011, Olivier Rousteing took over as artistic head of Men´s and women´s collections. The young designer´s couture spirit is found in his careful attention to details and balanced by his very modern silhouettes. For the eyewear collections you will find the confident and distinct styles with fine materials inspired by Balmain collections.
     
    Very carefully designed, the frames are built on strong symbols, the brand´s true identity elements: gold, nails, chains, glitter and leather. The collection is characterized by luxury and elegance.
