Balmain

It was in January 2020 that Balmain creative director Olivier Rousteing premiered the first designs from the Balmain Eyewear by Akoni collection, during Paris fashion week. Since then, the collection of frames has come to form an integral part of the house, finishing off the Balmain ensembles seen in campaign images, social-media postings and on the runway.

Today’s Balmain melds the storied heritage of a historic Parisian couture house with the bold, modern and inclusive vision of Olivier Rousteing, the house’s youthful creative director who is determined to design clothes that reflect the way his generation wants to dress today.

The result is a truly unique and recognizable silhouette, style and attitude that build upon the singular craftsmanship for which the house’s ateliers are celebrated, as well as the legacy of founder Pierre Balmain, a designer recognized for never being afraid to break with the well-established conventions of his era. As all areas of today’s fashion industry rapidly evolve, Balmain is intent on constantly remaining two steps ahead.

Headquartered in Switzerland, designed in California and made in Japan, @akonigroup works with the finest materials and most talented artisans. Comprised of a global team of professionals with decades of eyewear industry experience and expertise, Akoni’s vision, culture and values align perfectly with those of Balmain—a fashion house that is historic, yet thoroughly modern. Built upon the belief that eyewear is genuine luxury accessory in its own right, Akoni sets itself apart by its steadfast commitment to unrivaled design, craftsmanship, quality and service.
