Curious as we are, we’ve already gained an impression of the upcoming Balmain x H&M collaboration.
There has already been so much talking, photos and scandals (then-not-yet released photos of the collection were leaked on Instagram last week) we are glad to finally disclose the secret: the collection’s lookbook is out!
Today, the launch party takes place in the city of all cities, New York, and in a bit over two weeks – November 5th– the eagerly awaited thing finally hits stores!
H&M has splashed out: with pieces that surpass the $500 mark in America, the brand steadily works on the increase of value of their designer collaborations. And because 80% of H&M consumers are not willing/able to spend $549 on a blazer (please change money value to euro! Also in the gallery), there’s also quite a few treasures below the $100 mark.
The designs recall Olivier Rousteing’s typical designs for Balmain: beaded Baroque is displayed on simple, clever and sometimes even male cuts. Out comes a really young, but very elegant line that I would (almost) want every piece of!
Check out the gallery to find out about the best pieces, directly out of the Balmain x H&M lookbook!
