Architecture, the quintessence of chic, sophisticated glamour and elegance: this is how Balmain has been defined since its creation by Pierre Balmain in 1945.
In 2006, Christophe Decarnin awakened the sleeping beauty, and restored the brand’s former aura and launched new codes of a glamorous and sexy fashion. He focused on designer evening wear, restoring Balmain’s elitist spice. He successfully encapsulated what he’d inherited from Pierre Balmain and modernized the house’s image.
In March 2011, Olivier Rousteing took over as artistic head of the men’s and women’s collections. The young designer’s couture spirit — seen in his careful attention to handwrought details — is balanced by his collections’ very modern silhouette.
For these Men’s and Women’s eyewear collections, we rediscover the confident and distinct style and fine materials of BALMAIN collections. Very carefully designed, the frames are built on strong symbols, the brand’s true identifying elements : gold, nails, chains, glitter and leather. The collection is characterized by luxury and elegance.
