The Officier, the squared-off, unisex take on the iconic navigator frame, has
been one of Balmain Eyewear’s most popular designs—and it’s not hard to
see why. The Akoni Group and Balmain design teams pushed the classic
silhouette to new and surprising limits, adding expert detailing that
channeled Balmain’s long fascination with the regal splendour of the court at Versailles. Building upon the success of that singular design, Balmain Eyewear offers a new luxurious and exclusive re-edition of the Officier for Spring 2022. Limited globally to just 200 units, the special-edition spin on the Officier clearly recalls the house’s haute-couture origins, with the powerful bronze tones of the lenses created via a double colour infusion and the rims and temples of the silhouette just like Versailles’ most precious designs coated with real gold.
