Balmain x H&M hit stores today, November 5th, at 8AM online and 9AM in stores. Before you tackle someone to the ground for a $199 sequinned dress, read some reviews!
This collection is awfully repetitive of Olivier Rousteing’s last three Fall/Winter collections. Paying anywhere from $40 to $1900 for low quality mimics of seasons’ past’s hand me downs seems a bit outlandish in an industry where everyone is seeking the most cutting-edge and on trend designs.
Pictured left above are previous Balmain designs which have now been turned into fast fashion imitation pieces (pictured right.) While some of the H&M collab. pieces are a great thought, the price tag is far too high for something people wore 2-3 seasons ago!
Will I probably try to find the Gold-plated multi-strand choker on eBay for a reasonable price? Sure. But will I pay $600 for something someone paid $99 for five minutes ago? No thank you.
I also did a classic big haired, no eyeballs rogue from the comics a while back because I quite fancy the old school Rogue instead of the one they have now. (No offense but the sassy flying gal with the ability to throw houses over her head tickles my fancy)
