H&M x Balmain | My purchases5.11.15
The highly anticipated H&M x Balmain collection finally became available in the selected H&M stores this morning. I had the pleasure of being invited to the pre-sale event in the flagship college green store in Dublin and it was an experience I am going to remember for a really long time.
I have really underestimated the craze over the collaboration, when I got to the store about 5 minutes late the queue was already coming all the way around the building and people were already coming out with massive shopping bags. The seconds i got into the store I understood why. Every piece in the collection was really beautifully designed and perfectly tailored.
I was really lusting after the embellished jacket and shirts but at the end I went for a very classic piece that I know I will get great wear out of and will have it for years and years. I was so lucky to get this coat which was actually number 1 on my list. When I got there, there was only one left and it was in my size ! It's a little oversized but I absolutely adore it. It was €180 for a 100% wool coat which is I think amazing, and it's Balmain !!
