The Balmain x H&M collection is out today but as expected, it’s already sold out. Every single item has sold out on hm.com and items are selling out quickly in stores as people have been waiting in line for days. This, to be completely honest, is a bit ridiculous and I’m kind of tired of hearing about this collection.
We’ve heard about this collection for a while now and there has been a lot of promotion as well. It’s expected that people would be waiting for it like that, but then there are videos like this. That is just ridiculous. These clothes aren’t even that exciting or good-looking. Everyone wants a piece of luxury brands, though, so people do things like rushing into stores to get their hands on those items. This isn’t anything new either because people do this for iPhone launches as well.
Also, the Balmain x H&M collection has kind of gotten boring too. It was exciting when Kendal Jenner, Gigi Hadid, and Karlie Kloss were in the fashion show but that was about it. There isn’t anything in this collection that I would actually wear. The women’s clothes looked good because it looks like something from Versace, but the men’s collection is boring. The only thing I’d say I like from the men’s collection is the jacket in the photo below.
This jacket looks okay but once again, only because it reminds me of Versace. I wouldn’t actually wear this anywhere and the cuffs on the sleeves are quite ugly. There are some other jackets that are okay but I’d still never wear them. I like more of a minimalistic style and these clothes are just too loud for me. I’d rather wear something like dark wash jeans, boots, and a peacoat. Not to mention, the shoes and pants in that collection aren’t that good-looking either.
I’m also not disappointed that the collection has sold out because I wasn’t planning to buy anything from it anyway. This collection was only that exciting because of the celebrities in the fashion show and the leak that revealed all the pieces from the collection.
This collection doesn’t look that bad but I just wouldn’t ever wear anything from it. It got boring quick and I got tired of hearing about it.
