>> The new Pierre Balmain diffusion line launched Sunday in Paris, bringing with it lots of easy-wearing rock-tinged classics — moto jackets, skinny jeans — for Spring 2012. Priced from $172 (for tops) to $1,300 (for eveningwear), the collection is much more accessibly-priced than the main line — a Balmain T-shirt costs around $1,500 — and includes clothing for both men and women. Also accompanying the launch of the collection is a third — and final — Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin-directed video, which features a grunged-up Abbey Lee Kershaw on the run around Manhattan with her band, Our Mountain. See the video below, then click through for a peek at the entire Pierre Balmain collection, hitting stores in December.
