When H&M first announced Balmain as its latest collaboration, world wide hysteria understandably ensued. The reality is here and I am in love. I need, NEED, that amethyst encrusted cocktail dress. As well as the sharp shouldered sleeveless blazer.
I mean wow this first look by creative director Olivier Rousteing has created a sure sell-out collection, from the embellished blazer seen on Kendall Jenner to what will surely be the party dress of the season.
Here is your very first look at Balmain x H&M, modeled by Elle accessories Editor Donna Wallace.
Balmain x H&M hits stores November 5th.
