About Balmain

Founded in 1945 by Pierre Balmain, Balmain emerged as a leading brand in the French fashion industry with its elegant and sophisticated designs. Known for its mastery of tailored lines and high-quality fabrics, Balmain’s distinctive style resonated with an audience seeking a blend of modern aesthetics with classical French elements. Pierre Balmain, often referred to as a ‘king of French fashion’, was lauded for his charismatic personality and innate sense of style which was reflected in his designs. His fashion house became synonymous with star-studded glamour, dressing icons such as Ava Gardner, Marlene Dietrich, and Katharine Hepburn.

Following Pierre Balmain’s death in 1982, the fashion house continued to uphold its prestigious reputation under the creative direction of several renowned designers. Erik Mortensen, Balmain’s personal and professional partner, took over the reins initially and maintained the brand’s emphasis on elegance and meticulous tailoring. Over the years, Balmain experienced a series of transitions, from Oscar de la Renta’s stint as the head designer in the 90s to Christophe Decarnin’s edgier and glam rock influenced style in the early 2000s.

In 2011, Olivier Rousteing assumed the role of creative director, infusing the brand with a fresh, youthful spirit while honoring its rich heritage. His visionary approach has ushered Balmain into a new era, combining traditional couture techniques with a modern sensibility that resonates with a younger demographic. Under Rousteing’s leadership, Balmain has successfully expanded its global presence and continues to be a dynamic force in the world of high fashion. Today, Balmain remains at the forefront of luxury fashion, celebrated for its timeless elegance, craftsmanship, and innovative design.
