With this rose Balmain angora-blend cable knit sweater we imagine Kirsten Dunst spying us from across the room and saying "She's delightful. She looks like a piece of cake." (In hue only obviously). An ultra-soft piece from the label's Pre-Fall 16 collection it has been inspired by Versailles and Louis XV's mistress Madame de Pompadour. The result of impeccable craftsmanship, this saccharine jumper has been fabricated from a sumptuous angora-blend and features long sleeves, a ribbed crew neck and cable knit pattern. The perfect partner for your transition into the cooler months, team your Balmain sweater with flared jeans and Balenciaga boots (leave the powdered wig at home) for your own macaroon-inspired look.

MEET THE DESIGNER
The Browns’ edit of Balmain encapsulates the prestigious fashion house’s baroque and rock-chick aesthetic. Founded by Pierre Balmain in 1945, the fashion designer was one of the creative masterminds behind French fashion’s post World War II renaissance. The innovator of the brand’s signature ‘Jolie Madame’ aesthetic, the famed designer replaced the outdated utilitarian look with opulent and richer designs, which became an instant success amongst Hollywood’s elite. Since Balmain’s death in 1982, the brand has welcomed a plethora of successors through its doors who have continued to emulate the brand’s elegant and feminine vision. Since Olivier Rousteing was appointed as Balmain’s creative director in 2011, the ‘new generation’ brand has undergone a trendsetting revival which has pushed the couture house to the forefront of fashion and as a result has gained a powerful A-list celebrity following.
