Founded: In 1945, by Pierre Balmain
Current Designer: Olivier Rousteing
Complex Says: We have 20 reasons why Kanye put us up on Balmain. For a second, it seemed to be the only thing the rapper wore. We even noticed pop stars like Justin Beiber and Joe Jonas swagger jack his Balmain bomber. Jay-Z has been rocking the label with his superstar wife, Beyonce, a lot lately. It's also been rumored that designer, Rousteing will be designing Kanye's tour concerts. Regardless of the validity of that statement, it hasn't stopped inquiring (and stylish) minds from dabbling in the label's recent collections because of the two.
