Balmain Haute Couture
A Return to Couture for the French Brand
One of the most historic French fashion houses returns to Paris Couture Week, and it becomes a special event, especially if it’s Balmain. A long awaited presence (the last couture show Balmain presented dates back to 2002, when Oscar de la Renta was the brand’s designer), led by the quixotic Olivier Rousteing as creative director, affirms how a fundamental part of the maison’s DNA was recaptured. L’esprit couture.
