No Lower Priced Line For Balmain...
A piece of good or bad news depending on which side of the 'Balmainia' are you on:-) Balmain has clarified the rumours of the new affordable diffusion line, Blue Label.
"There is no Balmain lower priced line," a spokesperson told VOGUE.COM today. "What I think you might be referring to is a capsule collection that was prepared for some Parisian retailers. Christophe Decarnin wasn't involved in that project. The brand has decided to not repeat the experience, preferring to concentrate all its efforts on the mainline."
Rejoice at the exclusivity of your Balmain investment or feel sad about the loss of opportunity to buy into a more affordable Balmain line, I think loyal fans of the brand will have a hard time deciding. One thing's for sure, astronomical pricing is here to stay.
