H&M just announced its autumn guest collaboration with the Parisian house of Balmain! A veritable bastion of French luxury, under the creative directorship of young Olivier Rousteing, Balmain has grown into a global pop-culture phenomenon. Last night, Rousteing himself and his friends Kendall Jenner and Jourdan Dunn, walked the red carpet at The Billboard Music Awards revealing the first pieces of the collection. Through social media H&M and Balmain invited their fans to join a movement of togetherness with: #HMBalmaination.
“I want to talk to my generation: this is my main aim as a designer. H&M allows me the unique possibility of bringing everyone into the world of Balmain, getting a piece of the dream and creating a global #HMBalmaination: a movement of togetherness, fuelled on a hashtag. The collaboration felt extremely natural to me: H&M is a brand that everybody connects to. It calls for unity, and I am all for it”, says Olivier Rousteing.
Available from November 5, in around 250 stores worldwide and online, the collection will feature clothing and accessories for both women and men.
Can’t wait for this one! x
Rihanna has been revealed as the new face of French fashion brand Balmain. Well, she’s absolutely one of my favorite artists ever, and who isn’t a fan of Balmain anyway? But for some reason, I’m not feeling these campaign shots, not even a tiny bit! I mean its a bunch of mess put together! The hair, the styling, the bathroom-walls-like setup! Looks like a waste of two big names put together. She could have looked so much better, and you’d expect something more out of such collaboration. I truly hope they release more and better shots soon!

With her effortless style, Isabel Marant has created a widely influential and successful take on Paris chic. Mixing urban attitude, boho elegance and rock ‘n’ roll spirit, she delivers a genuine French allure. For H&M, Isabel Marant will create a wardrobe of must-have pieces inspired by her signature style. Available from November 14, 2013, in around 250 stores worldwide and online, and of course in Kuwait! the collection features clothing and accessories for women and teenagers. Isabel Marant will also, for the first time, create a collection for men!
“I am flattered by this collaboration. H&M works with the best designers and this invitation is an exciting honor. I aim at creating something real, that women want to wear in their everyday lives, with a certain carelessness, which I think is very Parisian: you dress up, but do not pay too much attention and still look attractive. The collection is infused with this kind of easiness and attitude. Everything can be mixed following one’s own instincts. My take on fashion is all about personality,” ~Isabel Marant.
