Kendall Jenner Gets Down In The Newest Balmain X H&M Teaser
Ever since the announcement of Balmain X H&M, we’ve been eager for any new information, be it from a leak on Instagram or from the long awaited lookbook. While the line still doesn’t launch until November 5th, the Balmain Army has gifted us with a video to tide us over, stars Balmain creative director Olivier Rousteing’s muse Kendall Jenner and take us behind the scenes of the newest campaign. Getting down with a legion of amazing dancers on the subway, the BTS shows the Jenner rubbing elbows with all types of dance, from twerking to vogueing, all while wearing pieces we are anxiously awaiting to shop. In an interview with Yahoo Style, Rousteing lets it slip that international dance, haute couture, and Michael Jackson were all inspirations for the H&M x Balmain collection. He also gushes about Kendall Jenner saying that “She is an icon. I’m inspired by her. For me she is the new Naomi, Claudia, Cindy. You know the type of models where people want to be her. Finally we go back to top models and are making dream girls. She also has an amazing soul and is so supportive.” He also calls the crew in the video “The Balmain x H&M army. They are the squad and the new generation of top models.” Well, if Kendall Jenner is the sergeant, then that’s one army we won’t hesitate to enlist in.
