It’s been the buzz since the official announcement. Fashion powerhouse Balmain collab with H&M has been one of the most anticipated (?) collection this year, and as we get closer to the release date (November 5th), we get to see the full lookbook. Olivier Rousteing’s luxury meets high-street urban aesthetics is seen throughout the collection. The men’s collection ranges in velvet jackets with detailed embroidery work, double-breasted coat, and a full line of sportswear staples such as hoodies, track-pants and logo tees. The women’s collection is also vibrant and entails the fashion house’s rich and luxurious attitude, ranging from a variety of dresses, pants and coats full of bold embellishments and flashy details. The collection will also include a range of accessories from bags, jewelry and footwear. Does it live up to the expectation?
