Referring to his first collection, Miss Toklas wrote, ''Suddenly there was the awakening to a new understanding of what mode really was, the embellishment and the intensification of women's form and charm. In later years, the Balmain style was known as conventional and elegant and appealed to such royal clients as Queen Serethit of Thailand, the royal family of Luxembourg and the Countess of Paris.
Such film stars as Marlene Dietrich, Katharine Hepburn, Brigitte Bardot and Sophia Loren were also clients, wearing his designs in their private life as well as in professional appearances. He was awarded the Legion of Honor in and also had decorations from Denmark and Italy. Anticipating that couture clothes would not dominate fashion forever, Balmain opened his perfume business with Vent Vert, a fragrance that is still being marketed.
Jolie Madame is his best known scent and after its introduction in the words were used to identify his fashion house. The perfume business was purchased by Revlon in , which launched the latest scent, Ivoire, last year. Revlon plans to continue to market the Balmain fragrances. Balmain pioneered in ready-to-wear adaptations of couture styles, setting up a New York operation in to reach the American trade.
His clothes were produced here by Elfreda-Fox. Today some manufacturers throughout the world are licensed to make 60 products bearing the Balmain name.
