French fashion house Balmain was founded by Pierre Balmain in 1945, famed for his elegant almost architectural creations. In 1982 after Balmain’s death, the house was lead creatively by a succession of designers including his close colleague Erik Mortensen and Oscar de la Renta. Balmain has been given a potent injection of rock ‘n’ roll attitude by its previous designer Christophe Decarnin and recent collections have garnered huge press attention for their sexy 1980s-inspired silhouettes and deluxe aesthetic. Olivier Rousteing has this year been appointed as the new head of design.
