If you’ve ever looked at a Balmain jacket and sighed at the price tag then this is for you! Along with a change of their Head Designer from Christophe DeCarnin to Olivier Rousteing back in April, French Fashion House, Balmain has taken on a new line – Pierre Balmain.
The new collection will focus on providing Balmain lovers with affordable versions of their highly coveted clothing collection! For me, Balmain does rock chic ensembles like no other and I expect the new line will follow in the same direction. The sister line designs will not be designed by Creative Director Olivier Rousteing himself but will pass through him for the stamp of approval (that’s good enough for me).
I love it when expensive brands jump on the “Luxury For Less” bandwagon. The whole idea is great style at any price and Balmain’s showing a prime example with the new move! The launch is set for September in New York. Stay tuned for updates; I’ll be keeping my eyes out on this one! Anyone looking forward to the launch?
