Balmain’s anticipated collaboration with H&M is now days away and the countdown for many fashion-obsessed lovers has already begun. The high-end designer is the latest collaborator to join the ranks of many others such Sonia Rykiel, Cavalli, Lanvin, Maison Martin Margiela, Marni, Isabel Marant, Versace , Alexander Wang and others.
The hype has a lot to do with the closely budding relationship between the “Kardashians” and the young head of design Olivier Rousteing spurring yet another fan-fanatic cult following #HMBalmaination. Let’s not forget that Kim Kardashian’s beloved engagement party dress to Kanye West was designed by no other than Olivier. As well as honoring Kendall Jenner as the face of the campaign. You can only predict the chaos that will ensue when the collection hits stores.
If you like the Balmain aesthetic, gaurd meets gladiator kind of look. Then this collection holds true to that with prices that match. This may be the most expensive collection to date for the H&M budget-fashion brand. The collection is not cheap; after scanning the 109-piece collection the under $100 (375sar) was bit concerning. Many of the pieces were priced between $100 and &150(550 sar), while others reached the $500(1875 sar) price point. It must be noted that the collection is very similar to the brand’s designer label with some items looking like complete replicas.
The collection will be available on shelves and online November 5 2015. As for Balmain x H&M in Jeddah we presume like all other campaigns before this, the collection will be showcased at one location in each of the major cities. Jeddah will release their collection at the Tahlia St. Branch
