Designer collaborations and H&M are nothing new. Versace, Karl Lagerfeld, Lanvin and so many more have participated. One of the highly anticipated collections of the year is about 21 days away. If you’re a fan of Balmain, November 5th, Oliver Rousteing is making it just a bit more affordable for you to get your Balmain fix!
I have always loved Balmain. Decadent embroidered blazers, skin-tight tailoring and dresses adorned with pearl embellishments Balmain doesn’t skimp when it comes to the “WOW” factor.
However, when I look at the collection everything screams Kim Kardashian-West. It was really hard to look at the collection and say to myself “That’s fierce!” or “OMG! I need this!” In all actuality the only thing that really is appealing is the Balmain logo t-shirts.
Personally, I was really excited when I learned about it. After seeing the look book, I just don’t know what I think about it anymore. I’m a bit less than impressed but maybe in person it will have a different effect on me!!!
