Sorry for the Balmain x H&M overload, but I'm just dying over this collaboration here. Balmain's Creative Director Olivier Rousteing released the images of the official campaign on his Instagram-account, in which we also can finally catch a glimpse at the men's collection for the first time.
And surprise, surprise (or not): the campaign stars Rousteing's close friends and favorite topmodel squad, also known as Jourdan Dunn, Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid. The Balmain x H&M men's collection is shown by models Hao Yun Xiang and Dudley O'Shaughnessy. Can we please take a moment to appreciate the striking resemblance between O'Shaughnessy and Rousteing himself? Both have the same bronzed skin, full lips and they sure as hell have one hell of a cheekbone game going on.
On my personal wish list? The emerald green dress, the draped mini skirt, the dress Kendall is wearing in the picture above, the black jacket with white pearls, the black and red fur jacket, the waist belt and the embroidered silver clutch. However, judging by the price tag of Gigi's dress, I have a feeling that this collection will cost a small fortune, so I'm obliged to narrow the list down to an absolute minimum. The drama! The horror! All I can do now is drown in self-pity and wait for the official summary of every single item and its price tag.
Balmain x H&M will launch on 5 November 2015 in selected stores worldwide and online.
