>> Balmain Clarifies Lower-Priced Label Talk, Launches Sunglasses —Last week, WWD reported that Balmain was planning to “test” Blue Label, an apparel collection for fall licensed to Balness, a French producer, and priced about 40 to 50 percent less than the runway collection. Today, a spokesperson for the label addresses the reports: "There is no Balmain lower priced line. What I think you might be referring to is a capsule collection that was prepared for some Parisian retailers. Christophe Decarnin wasn't involved in that project. The brand has decided to not repeat the experience, preferring to concentrate all its efforts on the mainline." The label is, however, launching a sunglasses collaboration with Oliver Peoples, available starting in March. [Vogue UK, Style File]
