Under the leadership of Christophe Decarnin, Balmain has again captured the attention of the fashion world with his signature aesthetic, combining high-energy Parisian style with a strong silhouette, catapulting the prestigious French couture house in a bolder, more contemporary direction. Balmain collaborates with Oliver Peoples, the Los Angeles-based eyewear design company, to create its first eyewear designs: two (2) Limited Edition sunglass styles to be introduced Spring of 2010.

Consistent with the 2010 Balmain collections, the bold, unisex styles reflect sleek, contemporary design elements and feature exaggerated teardrop lenses in a comfortable, face-fitting wrap. The Balmain I is a rock-n-roll-inspired, mixed-media style crafted with a smooth metal top bar fastened by four screws against the acetate-enclosed lenses to provide the illusion of a frame front. The temples include a flexible hinge that allows for greater bendable movement. This version will be available in solid black and a black/silver combination. The Balmain II is an inventive interpretation of the classic double-bridge aviator. The pronounced, slightly thicker top bar creates a more distinctive look, while retaining the signature styling. Available in gold or silver, this version is available in two sizes and flatters most faces.

Both Limited Edition Oliver Peoples for Balmain designs will retail for $595. Balmain I will be in stores March/April and Balmain II will follow later this year.
