Thanks To Balmain x H&M You Can Feel Like Kendall Jenner And Actually Afford It
It’s been a long time waiting since we saw Kendall Jenner and Jourden Dunn rocking pieces from the yet-to-be-revealed Balmain x H&M collection on the red carpet, and all we wanted to know was when we could get these over-embellished Balmain looks for H&M prices. Well, thanks to the internet trolls who can’t seem to keep a secret, 99 images of the collection we’re leaked last week before the Instagram account was shut down. However, not quick enough for us to keep our mouths shut.
After taking over as Head of Design at the French fashion house in 2011, at only 26-years-old, Oliver Rousteing is the man responsible for turning Balmain into the baroque closet of our dreams, and establishing a #BalmainArmy consisting of Kardashians, Jenners and more high-fashion It-Girls than a Taylor Swift video. After the collections release on November 5, in 250 H&M stores worldwide, (crossing our fingers our city makes the cut) Balmain will be more than just a dream and all the silk pants, embellished body-con dresses, gold-detailed blazers and faux furs can finally be an affordable reality. A fragrance will also be dropping come December 5, if you haven’t already heard.
If Rousteing was wishing for a hype bigger than the Alexander Wang x H&M collaboration, it has been granted, however, it seems there will be a piece for everyone this time around. When talking with H&M, Rousteing stated proudly in regards to his goal behind the collaboration, “I want to talk to my generation: this is my main aim as a designer.” Is it just me, or do we all want to dress our boo in that amazing men’s flight suit? Don’t worry single ladies, you can wear that one yourself if no dudes seem up for the challenge. Also, if the thigh-high boots are available, I think we’ll all be having our Kardashian moment come November.
