It may not be available until the 5th November but Balmain and H&M are dangling a heavily embellished carrot in front of us by releasing images of the full collaborative collection today.

The fashion label has become one of the most sought-after brands, particularly over the last 18 months thanks to Balmain’s creative director, Olivier Rousteing‘s #BalmainArmy. A regular on the party scene, Rousteing’s loyal followers include the Kardashians, Gigi Hadid, Jourdan Dunn and Cara Delevingne who drape themselves over the 27-year old designer and regularly flaunt their supermodel figures in his luxe creations.

Keeping with the military-style that the brands become well-known for, the H&M collection includes double-breasted jackets, gold details and silk accents in rich, jewel hues. Ornate prints, over-the-top accessories and faux fur jackets make for an extravagant offering that we’re used to seeing from their catwalk shows.

Form an orderly (or not) queue ladies, this one will be a sell-out!…
