Balmain embraces elegance, enchantment and femininity as its key codes. The first Ivoire de Balmain was created in 1979. Pierre Balmain’s vision was for Ivoire to pay tribute to the beauty of women. 2012 saw the return of Ivoire, but a much more contemporary offering, readdressing the original Ivoire customer. Ivoire today is modern, sexy, evocative and a little mischievous.
