“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.

The Show Must Go On. It will surprise absolutely no one to hear me say that music forms an essential component of Balmain’s singular and recognizable style. For as long as I can remember, music and fashion have been completely intertwined—that’s simply how my generation grew up. I cannot conceive of one without a full helping of the other. Knowing that, it may also not be the biggest surprise to see that today’s show follows, roughly, the classic trajectory of a rock anthem. Opening with the relaxed ease of layered knitwear that builds upon last season’s slouchy silhouette, our diverse runway steadily escalates—moving through plays of camos, denim, studded leathers, plaids and graphic black-and-whites—before finally ending with a full-throated roar that accompanies rich colors paired with an impressive offering of the type of detailed embellishments that our atelier is celebrated for. The runway’s final crescendo underlines this collection’s debt to the spirit and style of the hardest of the ‘80s hard rockers—men who paired hyper-masculine, who-gives-a-fuck primal screams with eye-catching looks that consistently challenged accepted standards and fluidly crossed over the barriers of outdated gender norms. That daring confident style pulses through today’s runway, its soundtrack and, of course, the collection itself. After a year marked by a series of tragic losses of those legends whose unique talents, rebellious nonconformity and incredible styles marked us all, this reminder of the liberating power of music feels particularly right for today.
