EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE UPCOMING COLLECTION
In November 2014, H&M collaborated with Alexander Wang for an exclusive 61-piece collection for H&M online & in stores. The items retailed between $10 to $350 for a limited time, but it only took them a couple of hours to shut down the Internet. The collaboration was a complete success with items being sold out in minutes. The collaboration featured ultra chic, sporty, & fashion forward items as anything we imagine would walk down Wang’s glorious runway. If you weren’t able to snag a piece from their collaboration, no worries. H&M officially announced another amazing collaboration with, this time, the one and only Balmain: H&M X Balmain.
Balmain has been one of the top rising fashion brands & a must-see runway show the past year. The announcement of the collaboration happened in May 2015 with the creative director of Balmain, Olivier Rousteing, on the red carpet at the Billboard Music Awards with his famous friends Kendall Jenner and Jourdan Dunn. Both models wore the very first look of the Balmain x H&M collaboration.
“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, fueled 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,” said Olivier Rousteing to H&M.
H&M recently posted on their Instagram another inside look on what to expect from this amazing upcoming collaboration.
We can only imagine what other illustrious items the two brands will come out with. The H&M X Balmain 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.
