Pierre Balmain, the more gently priced secondary line from Balmain, launched its second ever collection in Paris this week. The look is very Emmanuelle Alt (though she once styled Balmain's shows, she has nothing to do with the line): Skinny black pants (in leather or denim), an ultra-soft tee, and blazers with strong shoulders. When you want to mix it up--a leather motocross jacket. There's a little added glitz for fall in some sequined leggings, and a bit of Jane Birkin in the more flowy pieces (as you can see in the above video). And there's a little bit of Carine Roitfeld in that incredibly sexy sheer dress. So basically if you want to look like a chic French "It" girl--here you go.
PARIS--Yesterday in a spare white showroom on the Rue Réaumur, Balmain debuted their lower priced collection Pierre Balmain. The latest installment in a series of digital shorts directed by Inez and Vinoodh featuring Abbey Lee and her band Our Mountain, clad in Pierre Balmain, screened in a loop on one wall while the collection was styled on mannequins across another. While Balmain is known for being over-the-top--both in the way of blingy embellishments and price--Pierre Balmain is refreshingly pared down and prices start at just $180 (and runs as high as $1200 for leather jackets). It's cool, downtown street wear in the style of Emmanuelle Alt and her mini-mes: the perfect motorcycle jacket (it comes in vest form, too); low-slung skinny jeans with subtle ribbed detailing at the hips and zippers at the ankles; loose tuxedo jackets; and athletic-inspired boxy tops and jackets, some with the "PB" Pierre Balmain logo emblazoned across the back like a varsity jacket. There was a prevalent zebra print that ran throughout the collection--it showed up on button downs and jeans--inspired by the designer's first trip to Africa, after which he brought home a big zebra rug. The only ridiculous Balmain-ish item in the collection is the leather sweatpants. I mean, really?
