Last week the much anticipated Balmain X H&M collaboration was finally revealed and I’m pleased to see that the collection has lived up to expectations.
Although not available to buy until November 5, the collection is full of glitzy, embellished and sparkly pieces from Balmain’s creative director, Olivier Rousteing. The collaboration with H&M offers a more affordable collection of his popular designer range.
“I want to talk to my generation: this is my main aim as a designer. H&M allows me the unique possibility of bringing everyone into the world of Balmain get a piece of the dream and create a global #HMBalmaination: a movement of togetherness, fuelled on a hashtag. The collaboration felt extremely natural to me: H&M is a brand that everybody connects to. It calls for unity, and I am all for it”, says Olivier Rousteing.
From skintight dresses to structured blazers, the collection is full of glorious pieces that I have no doubt will sell out fast once they hit the stores in time for all those Christmas parties. Only trouble is deciding which piece I’ll be adding to my wish list.
