So we have officially stepped into the last quarter of 2015, and it is safe to say that the H&M collaboration with BALMAIN is one of the most anticipated fashion highlights of the year. It has been on every fashion nerd’s lips since the news was first announced. Now the mystery is finally over – yesterday was the collection’s global runway debut which took place in New York, while here in Hong Kong, we have had the pleasure to see everything up close in person for the very first time at the preview. Boy oh boy it did not disappoint, indeed. The glamour and glitz stamp of the BALMAIN house is well presented through incorporating the best of its brand signatures – extravagant surface decorations, power dressing shoulders, military inspired detailing, and an indulgent amount of gold & silver. In order not to bore you to tears by slapping picture of every single item on here (since you probably have seen the whole collection online already), I will only share those key pieces which I find worth sharing and glorious detail shots for you to appreciate the craftsmanship.
While across the globe, the awe-inspiring debut show was the event of the year on its own with the million dollars Balmain army seen marching fiercely down the runway in NYC. Sad as it might be, not all of the styles shown in the video will be available here in Hong Kong though.
Now, let the countdown begin till 5 November whoop!
