After devouring every fashion tidbit that has been fed to us over the past few months the first look at the entire Balmain x H&M collection is finally here. When we first heard of the collaboration between the fast-fashion power house and the social media designer darling we were intrigued to say the very least but when we saw Kendall Jenner and Jourdan Dunn actually rock a few pieces on the 2015 Billboard Music Awards red carpet our interests peaked to an all time high.
These pieces actually looked like they could have walked off the Balmain runway, but apparently that was the point. “I spent as much time on this collaboration as I do on my own collections because I wanted to make sure every garment was perfect” said Oliver Rousteing’s, the houses Creative Director. And with all that care and attention the true Balmain stamp can be seen all over the entire collection. From amazingly detailed embroidered jackets and dresses to beautifully draped pants this collection is not just a cheapened, dumb down whisper of the Balmain house but a true reflection of what the brand is and what Rousteing has come to be aesthetically known for.
The collection is set to hit stores November 5th so as we eagerly countdown the days get ahead start on your wish lists with the 20 images below. Meanwhile, we’ll be hitting NYC next week for the blowout launch party and bringing you all the deets.
