Located at number 44 on the Rue Francois 1er, the historic home of Pierre Balmain couture had been successively
modernized over the years. Thanks to the 2009 transformation overseen by architect and decorator Joseph Dirand,
the maison de couture has rediscovered its former spirit of a private residence.
Throughout its long history, the quintessentially Parisian house of Balmain has managed to retain its unique position
as both a historic French house and as a leading trendsetting brand that others look to as a reference.
