Having regained his freedom after the liberation of Paris in 1944, Pierre Balmain decided to get involved by founding his own sartorial maison.
His extraordinary and immediately popular vision secured Balmain a place among the most appreciated and intrepid designers, consecrating Paris as the capital of fashion. The originality, passion and audacious point of view of the founder gave life to his first collection, from which an astonishing vivacity emerged.
Today’s Maison combines the rich heritage of the historic Parisian tailoring house, forged on the precious optimism of Pierre Balmain, with the modern and inclusive approach of creative director Olivier Rousteing, who was not afraid to challenge established conventions.
The result is exceptional: an easily recognisable silhouette, style and touch. Balmain’s unique and global concept of style is expressed every year in a series of new proposals and creations, with collections for men, women and children, from eyewear to leather accessories and luggage.
