BALMAIN X H&M hits stores today

Thursday, November 5, 2015

Today is the release of Balmain’s H&M collection. It’s funny when I first went on their website, I was blocked due to the number of people trying to access the site. I can’t imagine what it’s like in stores.

This wasn’t the first collaboration H&M has had with a top designer; Alexander Wang released his line for H&M last fall. I think it’s a great idea that H&M is working with top designers to make high-end designs more affordable for the general public.

These are my top 5 looks from the Balmain x H&M Collection:

These Mulberry silk-satin trousers are perfect for the office and for going out. They have a high waist with deep pleats and a tapered leg. These would look very classy with a tailored blazer and heels.
Price: $119

This faux-fur leather coat is a head-turner. The detailing at the soft-leather collar mixed with the fun green fur and decorative designed waist belt will keep you warm in the next few months. Dress this with leather leggings and a nice silk blouse and heels; you’re perfect for a night out.
Price: $179

Kylie Jenner wore this dress with a belt and high boots to the Balmain x H&M fashion show in NYC. This short fitted velvet dress is made from a silk blend that’s embroidered with beads and sparkly stones with zippers at the cuffs and back. You can continue with Kylie’s look and pair this dress with high boots.
Price: $649
