The H&M Balmain collaboration pieces range in price from $30-650. I loved many of the looks, from the leather pants to those amazing vests and shirts: both the menswear and womenswear was on-point, and did evoke the Balmain aesthetic. Bravo Olivier!
Great jackets; boots I drooled over; faux furs; moto leather pants; the first jumpsuit I’d ever consider trying on; bags galore; a velvet moto jacket and three-quarter-length coat; Kimono belted tuxedo jacket; double breasted wrap shirt and open front jacket; embellished jackets in blue, black, and gold with a camel one looking like the knit jackets of the SS16 Balmain shows; and a palette of emerald green, ruby red, black, and navy composed the menswear looks. The womenswear included that Fabergé looking embroidery look Olivier brought to the label on pants, jackets, and dresses; tube tops; jackets- moto leather, faux fur, and an open front double breasted similar to the men’s version; mini dresses; beautifully draped skirts and blouses; and the ostentatiously embellished look that has become Balmain strut the runway. Can it be? Is this H&M?
