Balmain, long before the label became a favorite among fashion’s inner circles for its rough-hewn, deconstructed, and intricately detailed designs, was popular for a very different quality: uncompromising elegance. Pierre Balmain (along with Dior and Balenciaga) was one of the men responsible for the return to couture dressing after World War II, crafting luxurious eveningwear for Hollywood royalty (and actual royalty) until his death in 1982. In recent years, Balmain’s collections have taken on more edge, but the Pierre Balmain diffusion line of expertly crafted suiting, shirts, and wardrobe essentials offers modern men and women that time-tested understated, old-school luxury.
