It’s that time of the year again in which H&M brings to the world a mash up with a famous designer. This year, H&M is collaborating with the French couture house Balmain, by the hands of Olivier Rousteing. You probably hear about it already. Now come check the details!

If you have seen any of the Balmain runway shows, these pieces will not be unfamiliar to you. The signature of the house is highly recognisable in the H&M collaboration collection, and some pieces are identical to some true Balmain pieces of previous collections. Balmain is naturally a very expensive brand. The result of the collaboration are still quite expensive items, for H&M standards, but for the first time you can buy something at H&M that was embroidered by hand. How cool is that? I find the collection quite interesting, but to be honest I would only wear any of these pieces on a fancy party. But New Year is coming, so why not?

The collection will be available online worldwide on Thursday, November 5th from 10 a.m., and in selected stores from 9 a.m.

The previous years, designer collaborations disappeared from the stores in a couple hours. So if you want to grab something, be ready and act fast! Below I’ve listed some pieces of the collection, with prices, so you can start your planning!
