The hotly anticipated Balmain X H&M collection launched last night, exclusively in the ornate Flagship College Green store in Dublin. Almost 800 guests attended the opening, eager to get a glimpse of the stunning ensembles the collection had to offer.
Guests were transported into the world of Olivier Rousteing for an evening – this was the first time the designer collaborated with the high-street brand. All attendees were treated to a DJ set by fashionista of the moment Angela Scanlon (we love her), champagne and delicious French treats whilst shopping the designer collaboration of the year. Plenty of well-known faces such as Kathryn Thomas, Jay Duffy, Jodi Albert, Rosanna Davidson, Roz Purcell and Keywest made an appearance and were all spotted shopping the collection on the night, which is available in stores and online now.
The line was certainly worth the hype as every single piece of the collection (containing 111 items in total) is a glamazon’s dream, from the simple Balmain logo tees to the full on beaded power-shoulder blazers and sky-high platform heels. We’re expecting every item to sell out in no time. Prices start from a reasonable €14.99 up to a more expensive €399.99. Get ’em while the going is good.
