I literally jumped for joy and let out a school girl squeal when I heard this news: Balmain Paris is the next designer collaboration at H&M. I missed out on the Alexander Wang partnership, but I refuse to miss out on this collection. Balmain’s Creative Director Olivier Rousteing made the announcement Sunday night on the red carpet of the Billboard Music Awards. By his side were models Jourdan Dunn and Kendal Jenner. The two were dressed in Balmain x H&M – revealing the first pieces of the collection.
Rousteing always delivers luxury mixed with street wear. I can only imagine what he will bring to the table as the guest designer at H&M.
Below, are 10 looks I hope to see from the soon to be highly coveted collection.
These looks are from the designer’s Fall and Pre-fall 2015 collections. I’m sure we’ll see more looks that are true to Rousteing’s aesthetic, like leather, embellishments ,and sleek silhouettes.
The collection will be available starting November 5, in around 250 stores worldwide and online, and will feature clothing and accessories for both women and men.
