It’s been announced; H&M’s designer collaboration of 2015 will be with the Parisian house of Balmain. Expect big shoulders and plenty of embellishments details, silks and velvet. The collection will be launched on the 5th of November!
The news broke on Twitter; “We have some news” tweeted Kendal Jenner. She included a selfie with Creative Director of Balmain Paris, Olivier Rousteing and model, Jourdan Dunn before last night’s Billboard Awards, linking to Balmain and H&M. The image received more than 800,000 likes followed by the trending hashtag #HMBalmaination
So what do we know about the coming collection? The clothes will have all of Balmain’s maximalism style. The 29 year old french designer is known for not holding back when it comes to extravaganza. To give us a preview Dunn and Jenner, who appeared on the red carpet with Rousteing, was wearing designs from the H&M collection. Dunn wore a gold embroidery top and satin wrap skirt, while Jenner wore a longline jacket in navy blue velvet covered in white pearls.
If you would like to get your hands on a few of the Balmain x H&M pieces you better take the day off! We predict that queue on the 5th of November release date will be a camping-out affair. Don’t rely on online shopping. This has never worked for me, with the H&M website crashing repeatedly until wiped clean of designer goods. The solution is to get a few giggly girlfriends together, and get your flask of coffee and foldable chairs ready for an early morning outing, come November.
