In 1945 Pierre Balmain, established his namesake Parisian couture house. While back in the day Balmain could be found gracing strong celebrity figures such as Grace Kelly and Katherine Hepburn, today we see superstar warriors like the Kardashians, Rihanna, and Gigi Hadid leading the Balmain army with Creative Director Olivier Rousteing at the helm. Throughout the years Balmain has continuously produced sophisticated, luxe pieces that embolden women with accentuated curves, sharp lines and blunt shoulders. Menswear takes on a more heroic look—tailored pieces mixed with the more rugged biker jeans and jackets, mid-top sneakers, and graphic tees. Balmain is for the unstoppable male and female with fierce energy.
