When a beloved high-street and designer fashion duo meet something beautiful is destined, there is no way that Balmain x H&M can fail to impress.
I have been obsessing over this collaboration for months now and will be one of those individuals who will be eagerly at H&M’s doors tomorrow morning awaiting the store to open.
The only scary factor about all of this (other than how long everyone has had to wait) is the price tags. Although an absolute steal in comparison to Balmain’s usual prices, some items are not exactly high street affordable.
I have two personal favourites, the longline beaded jacket and the emerald green dress.

The beaded jacket was first seen on Kendall Jenner when the collaboration was announced at the Billboard Awards back in May, coming alongside a price tag of £299.99. The detail on this jacket is just exquisite, and although I desperately want it, the emerald dress will have to take precedence.
The emerald green dress is a little more friendly (I said little more) on the bank balance at £119.99. This beautifully detailed sequin dress is perfect for the festive season. However, its plunging neckline does bring with it fear, tomorrow will reveal just how risqué it really is, if I even manage to try it on that is!
The most affordable item of clothing in the collection is the Balmain T-shirt at £24.99. This logo T-shirt has gendered versions with similar styles being sold by Balmain for around £150.
The Balmain x H&M collection features both fashion and accessories and will be available online here and in selected stores from tomorrow. But really, you should already have had November 5th in your diary from May. Take a peek at the full collection here.
What do you think of the collection? What would be your go to item?
