This is the first time for Balmain to launch a store on a full-category e-commerce platform.
Founded in 1945 by Pierre Balmain, Balmain is one of the most influential fashion brands in the world. The brand has won the love of trendsetters for its mix of modern, rock and street style.
The store will provide selected items specifically chosen by JD’s fashion buyers based on Chinese consumers’ tastes and preferences.
In addition, to celebrate the grand opening, Balmain has partnered with JD IOU, a credit toll for consumers, to provide consumers with six-month interest-free loans.
