Balmain Chain – embellished calf hair coat

Filed under: Fashion — Tags: , — fashionmile @ 9:30 am

Light-brown and black animal-print calf hair coat with gold chain-embellished seams. Balmain coat has brass designer-embossed button fastenings at collar and double-breasted front, front-patch pockets and is fully lined. 100% calf hair; lining: 52% viscose, 48% cotton. Specialist clean.

Pierre Balmain founded his exquisite namesake Parisian fashion house in 1945, dressing the likes of Ava Gardner and Brigitte Bardot. After his death in 1982, a slew of designers took the helm including Oscar de la Renta, and now it’s the turn of elegant French designer Christophe Decarnin. His military-inspired line has the fashion pack clamouring for medal-decorated outerwear, spray-on cargo pants and fabulous cocktail dresses.
