Balmain French Luxury! – Everything You Should Know About Balmain
Between 1934 and 1945, a French man named Pierre Alexandre Claudius Balmain worked with Fashion icon Christian Dior for Lucien Lelongin in Paris. Mr. Pierre during his study in architecture for a year in Paris decided on another route, the fashion route, after which he soon discovered the potential of the American market and believed strongly that “Dressmaking is the architecture of movement”, which led him to establish Maison Balmain as a couture house. A house which today, has transcended time to be one of the leading fashion names in the world.
The Balmain brand is synonymous with strong, maximalist, and glamourous. Founded in 1945, Pierre Balmain was central on revolutionizing the French styles. He decided to focus on the American market at a time which was not ideal.
After the death of its founder, the fashion house continued in business with several other designers, shifting ownership throughout the 1980s with some of their biggest additions being the ready-to-wear line in 1982. In 1993, Oscar de la Renta took on the position of the creative director of the fashion house, a moment in Balmain history monumental for the fact that Oscar De la Renta was the first American to be posted as head designer of the fashion house with his first collection appearing on the runway in 1994.
In 2002 Laurent Mercier and Christophe Lebourg became the next successors of the brand, with Christophe seeking out a way to overhaul the brand’s aesthetics and introduce the flashy Balmain evening wears, provoking a new craze known as “Balmania”
Olivier Rousteing out of all the fashion designers that “ruled” Balmain currently occupies the creative director post. Named creative director in 2011, he managed to impose a contemporary outlook – a silhouette that reflects the women and men of his own generation, dubbed the “Balmain army”.
