Seducing its fans with refined lines and a muted colour palette, the house of Balmain has been showcasing its French flair for style since the 1940s. Today Pierre Balmain treats us to a blend of street style and high fashion, with striking essentials for men and women.

Pierre Balmain for her

Tempting women with his elegant opulence in the 1940s, Pierre Balmain put the femininity back into dressing, and that graceful touch still remains strong today. Collections feature sultry stilettos, ranging from pointed-toe boots with gold hardware to sumptuous suede court shoes in shades of scarlet and rich metallics. Wear yours with a pleated skirt and a tucked-in sweatshirt to a party. Putting a streetwear slant on casuals, Pierre Balmain showcases jersey dresses with zips and leather panelling, perfect to wear under a boyfriend blazer, but look to the brand's sassy double breasted longline suit jackets for some 80s style glam.

Pierre Balmain for him

Men will find standout styling at Pierre Balmain, with slogan tees, branded sweatshirts and designer jeans. Footwear is given a leisure luxe twist - high tops are adorned with varsity style numbers and gold zips, perfect to wear with tailored joggers and a long wool coat. Slim fit shirts and skinny jeans keep the silhouette refined, finish the look with a sweatshirt or a long sleeved top, and look to Pierre Balmain for interesting embroidery, embossing and brand name details. Top off the style with a streetwear-inspired puffer jacket, this season's hottest piece of must-have outerwear.
