Since the news of H&M‘s next designer collaboration with Balmain were released to the public, we are keen on getting our hands on the pieces that chef designer Olivier Rousteing has in petto for us. Last week the collection was revealed, the official launch took place last night at a big party in New York. The Balmain ‘army’ that Rousteing recruited for presenting his clothes consisted of models as Kendall Jenner, Joan Smalls, Bella Hadid, Jourdan Dunn, Alessandra Ambrosio and Gigi Hadid. The closing of the spectacular show marked a surprising live performance of the Backstreet Boys. Sure, that also celebrities like Diane Kruger and Alexa Chung didn’t miss the event!
The collection that Balmain created together with H&M is held in the house’s typical style: a lot of black, along with embellishment as pearls and gold hardwear, velvet and big blazers is what lies ahead of us.
From november, 5th the H&M x Balmain collection will be available in selected stores and online.
