As creative director for Balmain, Olivier Rousteing has written the dress code for confident, unapologetic glamour. He knows what modern women want to wear, whether it's a sharp blazer or a figure-hugging minidress.
When Pierre Balmain founded his namesake house in 1945, his vision was one of femininity and opulence. His reputation for beautiful garments earned him cosmopolitan, global clientele – one that still exists today. Since Olivier Rousteing's appointment in 2011, he’s brought the house into the twenty-first century and established his own Balmain army.
<p>Infused with the label’s signature dark romanticism and urban styling, French fashion house Givenchy was originally founded in 1952 by acclaimed couturier Hubert de Givenchy. Givenchy continues to showcase luxe Parisian elegance fused with a modern streetwear style.</p>
French designer Hubert de Givenchy established his eponymous label in 1952, which revolutionized women's fashion as one of the first luxury ready-to-wear houses. Its debut collection showcased sophisticated separates, impeccable tailoring, and glamorous eveningwear. In 1969, Givenchy introduced the menswear line with classic and relaxed styles that redefined the notion of masculine elegance.
Currently, under Matthew M. Williams’ lead as creative director, the brand still upholds the same commitment to quality craftsmanship and construction that has become its signature over the years.
