When H&M announced its collaboration with Olivier Rousteing, creative director of Balmain, the news went viral. Everyone expected the collection to be sold-out worldwide, even before it hit the store. Recall the insanity when sales opened with shoppers fighting over their target items? Now that the agitation is over, how are you wearing your Balmain x H&M pieces?
Many of the designs had original embroideries, colors or cuts. Here I wear, for example, the wide leg pant for a day look. I opt for a gray tee and faux-leather jacket and white platform shoes. I put over my black minimal coat and marked the waistline with a thin green vintage belt (trendy move for the upcoming season). Although the Balmain x H&M piece is quite original, I don’t look overdressed for the office yet dressy enough later to attend the ArtGenève exhibition on an invitation from Ruinart. By the way, do check out live updates on my Instagram, Twitter and Snapchat!
