Balmain Announces Footwear License With Giuseppe Zanotti and Capsule Eyewear Collection With Oliver Peoples 2009-10-01 14:30:22

Balmania!!!

If you know nouveau Balmain, you're familiar with its luxe, rocker aesthetic, and even more ferocious collection of footwear. Thanks to Balmain’s Christophe Decarnin, the Paris fashion house will get even bigger — if that's even possible – with recent collaborations. Balmain took its three-year relationship with Giuseppe Zanottti and signed an official women’s footwear license with the shoe designer. New to come is an upcoming capsule collab with eyewear expert Oliver Peoples, along with the possibility of a men's shoe line. “He is the master of arts, deus ex machina,” said Balmain's chief executive, Hivelin.

Balmain is said to have around 20 licenses all over the world, including scarves, small leather goods, and ties. In addition, its flagship boutique in Paris will undergo a complete art deco-inspired renovation next month, featuring chimneys transplanted from chateaus around France and authentic Louis XIV or XV parquet flooring – wow. Get ready for total, utter Balmania!!!
