Pierre Balmain helped revolutionize French style with the launch of his eponymous brand in 1946. The brand immediately took off and was a massive worldwide success. After Pierre Balmain himself stepped down, Oscar De La Renta carried the torch of Balmain’s original vision. In 2005, Christophe Decarnin was appointed and steered the brand in favor of ready-to-wear. It was under him that the beloved Biker jeans of the 2010s were created. In 2011, Olivier Rousteing replaced Decarnin and made Balmain synonymous with pop culture. He also exposed the legendary brand to the masses with the Balmain x H&M collaboration of 2015.
