A Singular History of More than 75 Years
Balmain was founded in 1945 by Pierre Balmain. From the outset, Monsieur Balmain´s boldly feminine and opulent signature style offered a starting contrast to the utilitarian looks of the day, creating a distinctive, super-feminine DNA and quickly transforming the Parisian house into a favorite of both European and Hollywood royalty.
Today’s Balmain melds the rich legacy of a historic Parisian couture house with Pierre Balmain’s singular optimism and the modern and inclusive vision of Olivier Rousteing, the house’s Creative Director since 2011. Balmain is intent on forging fashion´s future in a uniquely authentic manner.
Season after season, the fashion shows celebrate the culture of the 21st century, reflecting the lifestyle of the „Balmain Army“ and the way that today’s women and men wish to dress.
