Balmain fans rejoice, it won’t be long before you might actually be able to get your hands on the clothing and sport the label yourself. Since Olivier Rousteing took over at Balmain there has been word of further restructuring within the French fashion house. The brand—known for its infamously ultra-expensive clothing—will launch a ready-to-wear diffusion line, dubbed Pierre Balmain, for men and women this September.

Now that the label is set to trickle down to the masses (though with the main line featuring jeans that clock in at around $1,800, there’s no telling what affordable means to them) we are hearing whispers that the Pierre Balmain line will make its grand debut in New York this fall.
