A Day In The Life Of Pierre


Meet Pierre, Balmain’s debut handbag, a collaboration between the label’s creative director, Olivier Rousteing, and French jeweler Aurélie Bidermann. “It was great to work with Aurélie—she has such a great sense of style,” Rousteing tells “For me, she represents the ideal Balmain girl.” And what’s the ideal bag for the ultimate Balmain girl? It’s made of natural calfskin suede, available in gray, natural, and cherry, and features an ivory leather interior. On the zipper, there’s a delicate ivory sanglier tooth—a nod to the label’s signature Ivoire scent. “The Pierre is the bag I always wanted to have,” admits Bidermann. Now that Bidermann’s bag dreams have become a reality, look out for it ($4,350) exclusively in Barneys New York and the Balmain Paris store at the end of October. Until then, you can fantasize about toting one of them via this exclusive video, starring the Pierre.
