Balmain Outerwear


Balmain is a French fashion house that was founded by Pierre Balmain in 1946. After his death in 1982, the house was led by Erik Mortensen, described by Vogue as "Pierre Balmain's right hand" who had joined the house to work as Balmain’s assistant in 1951. Possibly the most influential designer to take over at Balmain was Oscar de la Renta, who led the house between 1993 and 2002. Already a fashion veteran before joining Balmain, De la Renta brought a famous face to the brand Balmain. He fit into the Balmain design aesthetic, with an eye for detail and classic silhouettes. In April 2011 Balmain announced that Decarnin was to be replaced by Olivier Rousteing. While he liked Decarnin’s aesthetic, he wanted to orient the label towards the finer aspects of French couture. At the time of his appointment, Rousteing brought a much-needed fresh take on the brand’s aesthetic that remains to this day. He was credited with adding an Asian influence to the clothing, as Asia comprises a huge part of the brand’s buyers.
