 So, a couple of weeks back Balmain launched their collaboration with H&M and it was a total sell out! (as planned). Balmain has been one of my favorite brands since I could remember with designer Olivier Rousteing leading the Balmain army. I adore the brand for the fact that it celebrates strong women and its totally visible in their designs.

Luckily, I was able to make a one and only one purchase from this limited edition collaboration. Waking up at 7am and over refreshing the page definitely worked after the H&M site took a major crash as it launched at its 8am scheduled time. For those wondering, the collaboration between the two brands was considered to have been scaled down to a "more affordable" range of prices for the everyday shopper. In my opinion, I totally thought the collection was not affordable for the daily H&M shopper, but compared to Balmain's normal prices items the collaboration could really be considered affordable. The prices ranged between $35-$800 approx.

I really wanted to give the classic Balmain tshirt a little twist by adding leather and just keeping the whole outfit in black. You can never go wrong with black! The lettering on the shirt is a little hard to distinguish, but its black velvet so it really wasn't translating well on the photos.

Sadly, the collection is no longer available as everything sold out the day of, so it was really hard for me to find and link some of my favorite pieces from the collection to show you all on the blog. Hopefully another exciting collaboration between two amazing brands will launch again.


Until next post,
