This has been an extremely awaited H&M collaboration worldwide and this time India will have direct access to it too! H&M’s newly opened, first store in India at Select Citywalk will witness the launch of the Balmain x H&M collection on November 5th, 2015 and as far as the eye can see, people are waiting for it with bated breath. So get your money ready honey because it’ll be gone before you can say #HMBalmaination.
The collection has the intrinsic ‘Balmain’ feel to it with power-woman silhouettes and dripping with specific embellishments. Oliver Rousteing, the creative director of the Parisian couture house has created clothes in which you know you can rule the night – with strong shoulders, cinching high-waisted belts and accessories & embellishments that have no competition. A lot of the hand-work and embellishing has actually been done in India and some of the pieces have taken over 45 days to be created. It’s almost a pieces of art that you will own. To give you an idea of the price point of the collection, I have also mentioned the price of all the pieces that are a part of my look at the end of the post.
I shot this look at the lovely JW Marriott property in Aerocity, New Delhi and picked out some of my favorite styles from the collection to make this look. That dress originally comes with a pair of palazzo pants but can be worn separately as just a dress. I combined it with a menswear jacket that has a very ‘piloty’ feel to it. A bright red clutch for some contrast, chunky gold-tipped boots, lots of rings and a pair of clip-on earrings and sunglasses. Yup, those are clip-ons. I explored a lot more of the collection which I has shared on my Snapchat a few days back. So add me on Snapchat so that you don’t miss any of the future action. ID: akanksharedhu
