Starting the month in style. Balmain X H&M... more like Balmania! After a long wait with FashionbyMNP & my sister, we finally got our hands on the best of the collection in the Edinburgh H&M store! This collection was even better in person- the quality, the colours & the accessories, well worth the wait.
As a huge Balmain fan, I needed my favourites...The silk wrap dress, The velvet rope dress, the green velour dress, Balmain London T-shirts in white & black and the very chic aviator shades...All to die for! I've been falling in love over and over again with all of the statement pieces seen on Gigi & Kendall for months so I was desperate for the most exclusive piece of the collection, the beaded velvet jacket. Unfortunately, this wasn't stocked in the Edinburgh store (just my luck) so I'll be saving for a Balmain embellished piece...I'll have you one day!
As I couldn't get the rope dress & green velour dress in store, I was lucky enough to get them online! Watch out for images coming soon...Can't wait!
This has to be the best H&M collaboration to date. I can't express how amazing the quality and the attention to detail is...from the gold buttons, the strong roping and structure and the thick zips on all of the products. And even the packaging! All pieces were sold in a satin dust bag on gold embossed, velvet coat hangers in huge branded shopper bags, pure luxury!
For all the Balmain lovers who are buying from others, the pieces are a tight fit so I suggest you go a size up. I know the reselling prices are expensive but if you neeeeed it, the quality and designs are perfect so go for it!
