Balmain Confirms Diffusion Line

SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEE! Balmain, one of my most favorite designers that I could never afford, has confirmed rumors of a diffusion line! The fashion house was known for glam French elegance for many decades, though hit some hard times after the designer's death in the 80s. Luckily for all of us, the hiring of designer Christophe Decarnin in 2005 had completely reinvigorated the brand! He added a tough chic aesthetic, to create an amazing party girl vibe that fashionistas covet at all times! Though now under a new designer, Olivier Rousteing, I think the collections are as strong as ever.Alas, the clothes are notoriously expensive—items are easily $2,000 and more and dresses are frequently more than $10,000! But this new diffusion line, to be called Pierre Balmain, will hopefully be more accessible. Watch for it in the spring of 2012!
