My Picks: BALMAIN x H&M
BALMAIN x H&M,
BALMAIN x H&M. Double-breasted coat,
My initial reaction is that this collection is too military ---military got dull 2 years ago.
Also, the collaboration is a poor business move considering Balmain is notoriously over-priced,
so this only confirms how unwarranted the 5000% markup is on their runway collections.
Corded nautical blazers can only cost so much to manufacture, + Is the Balmain name really even that cool anymore?
BALMAIN x H&M. Dress in cotton velvet w/ braided details, front pockets &
chunky, gold-coloured zip down the back. Lined. Black
This was the coolest product in my mind:
Balmain earbud headphones !
They should've done an entire e-accessories line (phone cases, laptop/ipad cases etc) instead of a bunch of jewel-tone & gold satiny blousons.
BALMAIN x H&M. In-ear headphones from Molami™ with a clip-on microphone &
controls. The headphones have twisted wires and leather straps w/ metal decorations.
I tossed this one in for good measure. Sporty, easy to wear. Could be dressed up or semi-casual.
BALMAIN x H&M. Polo-neck jumper in a rib knit w/ a slight sheen, w/
chunky, gold-coloured zip down the back, shoulder pads & ribbed
89% viscose, 10% polyamide, 1% elastane.
