When Balmain’s creative director, Olivier Rousteing was asked what is the most important thing in fashion he said: “I think confidence“…. “But also I think sexy and powerful”
The concept of the H&M x Balmian collection has a strong, glamour and pop culture feel, with items that are the translation of afordable couture.
And as the countdown is on to the collection dropping in stores (now just days away!) it’s time to reveal my last 2 looks of this ‘Oh, I want it all’ collab inspired by Rousteing’s description of fashion.
I’m already known for my shoes addiction and these beaded booties that look like a jewel to your feet are my favorite ones, but I couldn’t say no to the black straps sandals with the gold details on it as well.
The second item that went straight to my must-have pieces were the jackets. I’m a big fan of buying designer’s classic items rather than trends, as I believe you can’t get enough of it easily and that way it will stay in my wardrobe for a while and wont be a waste of money.
I just love the double-breasted jacket that Alexa Chung wore to the collection fashion show and also the black one from the men collection which featuring military gold detailing.
