The fashion world is buzzing with anticipation for H&M latest designer collaboration collection. The fast-fashion brand has teamed up with the French fashion house Balmain, a favorite of celebrities worldwide. Fans of the brand will be glad to know that head designer Olivier Rousteing is bringing Balmain’s signature design elements to an H&M near you, with structured shoulders, elaborate beading, wide belts and luxe materials. While Balmain’s pieces normal carry a hefty price tag, the H&M collaboration will be a fraction of the price…which unfortunately is still several hundred dollars for some items. For fashionistas on a budget, there will be affordable offerings such as t-shirts, jewelry and headphones for $50 or less. The collection will be available for purchase on Novembr 5.
On October 28, a preview party for the Balmain X H&M collaboration was held at Gangnam’s The A Club. This event was attended by several fashionable celebrities as well as many of Korea’s top models. Everyone was decked out in clothing and accessories from the collaboration, and even got to see a performance from Jay Park! Check out the details of what some of the attendees wore for this party.
