Beyond Kanye West’s Billboard Awards performance that would of had a pyromaniac foaming at the mouth, and the premiere of Taylor Swift’s the highly-anticipated video for “Bad Blood,” the annual award show brought exciting news than most expected before the show even began .
The always-snatched Creative Director and designer of popular, high-fashion brand Balmain, Olivier Rousteing, hit the red carpet with his beloved Balmain army. Standing at 5′ 10″ and 5′ 11″, Kendall Jenner and Jourdan Dunn strutted down the carpet clad in the brand’s upcoming collaboration with mass retailer H&M. Yes, you heard us right. Balmain at insanely cheap prices but don’t expect to walk away with anything of luxe quality – you know how these H&M collabs go. Dropping on November 5th, the collection will include a range of womenswear, menswear, accessories and shoes.
Rousteing dished on the forthcoming collaboration telling Style.com: “H&M approached the house. But it’s always been a dream to do it. When you do a collaboration with H&M, it’s a big step in the fashion industry. It’s a big achievement, professionally and also personally. Professionally, you build a world and they want to be part of it. They want to be part of the Balmain army, which is amazing. Personally, it’s an amazing challenge as a designer to make a collection for the street market and for the entire world. When you work for a superluxury brand, you don’t have so many stores, your vision isn’t the entire world. With H&M, you know you’re part of the world, you touch all the continents. I’ve always been loud about being about diversity and the world. So it’s perfect.”
