Pierre Balmain

PIERRE BALMAIN Distressed Skinny Moto Blue Jeans

Like several other designers, Balmain opened his house in post-war Paris. The House of Balmain opened in 1945 at 44, rue François 1er. The house was known for small waists and longer bell shaped skirts. (Similar but not quite as extreme as Dior’s New Look.) His first collection debuted in October of 1945. It garnered rave reviews, and the November 1945 issue of Vogue praised the collection for being gorgeous and wearable. Balmain passed at away at the age of 68 at the American Hospital of Paris, from liver cancer in June 1982. He had completed sketches for his last fall collection. Erik Mortensen, who was Balmain’s life partner and right hand man, took the helm of the house. Mortensen carried on with Balmain’s sense of creativity while also continually adapting to the changing world of couture, and won several awards. However, after leaving in 1990, he was replaced by one of the most notable figures in fashion: Oscar de la Renta.
