Balmain fans – and budget fashionistas – eagerly awaited the brand’s H&M collaboration, out November 5. In an exclusive sneak peek of the line’s womenswear lookbook, Vogue shared the collaboration’s reimagining of Balmain classics.
Never fear! There are pearl-embellished dresses and oversize leather coats, just like designer Rousteing shows on the seasonal runway.
And yes – there are sartorial temptations for the men, too. (Though we’re focusing on the women here.)
“We spent so much time on the collection making sure the cut and fit of every garment was totally Balmain,”Rousteing shared directly with Vogue. “I spent as much time on this collaboration as I do on my own collections because I wanted to make sure every garment was perfect.”
