H&M X Balmain
With just over two weeks to go till the H&M X BALMAIN collaboration drops the official look book has been released and we can honestly say this is one of the best high street/ high fashion partnerships we’ve seen in a long time. The best thing about Olivier Rousteing designing for the Swedish retailer is that it looks like a collection that would be seen on the catwalks at fashion week. Meaning that it looks a proper Balmain runway collection rather than a watered down version that some high street collaborations produce.
It’s fun, fierce and not for the faint hearted. Balmain’s usual formula of structured shoulders, thigh skimming lengths and detail heavy clothes is evident through out. Gorgeous gem colours, and chunky gold jewellery round off the collection – perfect for the party season ahead. Prices start at £17.99 and go up to £400 – a little on the expensive side in terms of the high street but definielty worth the investment. The collections drops on 5th November and as we can imagine will be very much in demand so be ready! Until then dream about what you’d like to buy with the lookbook below.
