An atmospheric short film by Martial Schmeltz depicting a mating ritual between a man and a woman set the overall tone for Balmain’s secondary Pierre Balmain line — sensual, but with a tougher, sexy edge. For the label, which is positioned at more of a contemporary price point, the design team offered cool black biker pants and jackets, one of which was interspersed with white leather, and several micro-studded pieces, including a tank top with slim-fit trousers and a black coat with studded sleeves and sharply tailored shoulders. They, along with a double-breasted suit and a great black fringed dress, fit in nicely with the overall codes of the house’s main line designed by Olivier Rousteing.
