When you hear the name “Balmain” you think more than Kim K. But it speaks style, sophistication, glamor, old Hollywood, and lots of color. I was unaware of the Balmain line of clothing until a designer friend of mine (Thirty1fashions) kept talking about how great his style was and the use of color and different fabrics. Here is a little history about the Balmain name, thanks Wikipedia.

In the late 1930s, he served in the French air force and the army pioneer corps. After peace was declared, he worked at Lucien Lelong and opened his own fashion house under his name. He released his first collection in 1945 and his first fragrance in 1949. While at Lelong, he met Christian Dior, a designer who would play a huge role in Balmain’s career and the postwar fashion industry in general.

Now I’ll let the photos speak for themselves.
