Balmain is a luxury Parisian fashion house that was founded in 1945 by Pierre Balmain. Creatively directed by Oliver Rousteing, the modern-day Balmain collection features classic clothing, shoes, and accessories which get better and better every season. From the signature biker style jeans and leather jacket, you’ll be hot on the heels of this season's fashion trends.
Balmain has always had fashion running through his blood. His father owned a drapery business, and his mother and sister owned a fashion boutique, which he would often work in after his father passed away in 1921. With his history and knowledge about fashion, Balmain was always destined to do wonderful things in our fashion world. In October 1945 he released his first clothing collection and was dubbed ‘the king of French fashion’.
In June 2016, Balmain sold to a private Qatar Investment company, Mayhoola for around $563 million. Since then there have been many successful collaborations with Victoria’s secret and Kylie Jenner. The brand is now expected to speed up the expansion of its global store network and make their way into the handbag market as well as continuing to operate their 16 mono-brand stores in the most luxury locations across the globe, such as; Los Angeles, Las Vegas, New York, Miami, Milan, and London.
Boasting a huge 10.7 million followers on Instagram, and having a large A-list celebrity following, the brand has become one of the most desirable out there. The Kardashian/West clan are big supporters of Balmain, along with Floyd Mayweather, 50 cent, Jay-Z, and Brazilian footballer Neymar.
