Balmain x H&M – Accessible Haute Couture

Balmain x H&M has been creating such a buzz, even months before this collaboration collection goes on sales on November 5. Faces of the campaign (eg Kendall Jenner) were spotted wearing selected pieces in red-carpet events. To tease us further, H&M launched a music video. So are we surprised that opportunistic sellers are already listing items on eBay! The hype is not without ground. Balmain x H&M pieces look so high-end, refined and stylish in the lookbook that you would think they popped right out of the mainline Balmain collection. The artistic director Oliver Rousteing kept his signature touches and made little compromise. That is all good news for us.
For a preview, I selected here a matching ensemble of large pants and turtleneck with velvet embroidery. It is an elegant outfit but I also want to avoid looking too plain, So I add a couple of quirky details, like the large belt and deep red clutch.
There are so many items to crave for in Balmain x H&M. What will you be going for tomorrow in H&M digital or selected stores ?
