The Balmain X H&M lookbook is here! That awkward moment when you want everything…*sigh. The lookbook made its debut this morning and we must say we are pretty impressed!

Considering the fact that its going to be a lot cheaper than the original Balmain, it looks quite a lot like the designer label itself! Lots of Balmain statement iconic pieces are mirrored in the collection and so are the embellishments, embroidery, beading and draping.

Olivier Rousteing, Creative Director of Balmain said, “The craftsmanship was really important to me in the Balmain x H&M collection. If you collaborate with Balmain, you have to know that there can never be any compromise, and that’s something that H&M understood so well.

They really pushed themselves to make it happen, to get that feeling of exclusivity and uniqueness. Embellishment has been part of my work at Balmain from the beginning.

The allover beaded dress comes from my very first Balmain collection, so it’s like I’m literally giving to H&M the beginning of my story. There’s something emotional for me about how this dress was born, and now through H&M I’m giving it to the world.”
