PARIS — Balmain, the French fashion and fragrance house whose image has floundered since the departure of couturier Oscar de la Renta in July 2002, on Thursday said it had filed for the French equivalent of Chapter 11 debt protection.
A spokesman said it was unclear if the runway presentation of Balmain’s ready-to-wear and couture collections would be affected. “It’s not the end of Balmain,” he insisted. “Clothes will continue to be produced.”

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
