Did you know that Balmain has a sister line called Pierre Balmain? It originated in 2011 as a way for consumers to own a piece from the Balmain brand without having to pay the heavy price. The design team, the same group who oversees Just Cavalli, takes inspiration from Olivier Rousteing’s collection and create pieces that reflect the Parisian military style Balmain is known for. You’ll find a plethora of well structured, fitted blazers, skirts, and Moto jeans within the Pierre Balmain collection. If you take a look at Balmain newest arrivals, you can see the similarity in the two lines (just the price is different!). I have found the most challenging part is finding a place to shop the Pierre Balmain.
So where can you get the latest from Pierre Balmain?
I love checking out the plethora of options Blue & Cream offers of Pierre Balmain. I find their selection is larger than most boutiques or department stores, giving me the chance to shop several different pairs of jeans and jackets. I am especially obsessed with this denim and tweed jacket and matching shorts. The jacket is so timeless and can be worn year round. I also really love the Pierre Balmain jeans Blue & Cream carry. Each style is so unique and has a personality of its own. The braided texture of the moto jeans is a signature of Pierre Balmain, and instantly what I gravitate towards when selecting a pair.
If you are in love with the military jackets that Pierre Balmain and Balmain are known for than Net-a-Porter have quite a few options for you. I really love the asymmetric cady blazer, it is fun and a unique twist to your typical blazer.
As for the most affordable options? I found luck at Nordstrom Rack, the only downfall is there are only currently three styles to choose from! But you can always check back and see if more Pierre Balmain is added to their inventory.
