THE SIX-BUTTON BLAZER
THE HOUSE SIGNATURES
Seeking a shot of confidence? Pull on one of Balmain’s iconic double-breasted blazers. You’ll see immediately what the house’s atelier is capable of: strong shoulders, nipped-in waist and the power to pull any ensemble instantly together.
75 YEARS OF BLAZER EXCELLENCE
Pierre Balmain’s mastery in crafting the perfectly tailored six-button jacket was legendary. The house archives are filled with decades of examples illustrating his savoir-faire.

FAR FROM A TRADITIONAL BLAZER
Balmain’s DB may have classic touches, but this is clearly not your parents’ jacket— sleek styling makes this icon a favorite of sports, music and film stars—as well as a daily go-to for Olivier Rousteing himself.
The bold placement of six golden B-emblazoned buttons on the front of the house’s blazers and coats is one of the Balmain’s most recognizable signatures. And, as anyone who has ever slipped on one of those famous six-button jackets can attest, the Balmain atelier’s flawless tailoring injects a sort of magic, confidence-boosting power directly into those blazers.
A POWERFUL OPENING MOMENT
You may recall one of this house’s most memorable Paris Fashion Week moments. Olivier Rousteing’s Balmain Fall 2020 runway opened with a bang—as 20 models marched out in perfect unison, each clad in the latest take on the house’s iconic six-button coats.

CONSTANTLY PUSHING NEW POSSIBILITIES
Each season, Olivier Rousteing loves pushing the limits of the house’s signature DB jacket, playing with new cuts, fabrics, button shapes—or sometimes just eliminating the buttons completely.
