It’s official now! Olivier Rousteing, the head designer of Balmain announced the news yesterday at the Billboard 2015 Music Awards held at The MGM Grand Garden, Las Vegas. The highlights of the future collection were seen when Kendall Jenner and Jourdan Dunn wore one of the designs on the red carpet of the event. The rest of the collection will be launched on the 5th November 2015.
At first, it was difficult to tell what these beautiful ladies were wearing but after the designer spilled the beans, it was pretty clear. H&M previously have had many designer collaborations: in November 2013 it was with Isabel Marant where the collection was very relaxed in line with the signature style of the casual stylish Parisian. H&M’s most recent 10th collaboration with Alexander Wang in November 2014 was a ready-to-wear, inspired by the utilitarian sportswear.
H&M loves to surprise its customers with great designer collaborations every year. Collaborations with Alexander Wang was announced at the after party of Coachella, and likewise was this a surprise by the head designer of Balmain at the BBMA in Las Vegas, Nevada.
From the Instagram and Twitter posts we can see that the Balmain army is in action which talks very much about the collection and we could assume that it will be a unique blend of couture and streetwear.
