The Long Awaited H&M x Balmain Drop Has Arrived, Get Your Shopping Artillery Ready

The day has finally arrived, well a day early for us, at the H&M x Balmain Los Angeles VIP Pre-Launch where we got to shop the highly anticipated line before the public. You would think that we would be swimming in the H&M x Balmain Collection by now, since we got to shop a day earlier than everyone else, well you’re wrong. The frenzy started at the VIP Pre-Launch at the H&M Sunset Plaza store, where capacity was already reached before the doors opened at 7 pm. It was entertaining and a little ridiculous seeing everyone fight over the exclusive cloth, but that’s the name of the game when H&M teams up with a high fashion designer like Balmain Paris. It also helps that the Jenners and the Hadids, some of the most recognizable faces in the world, are the actual face of the collaboration.

Prior to the Balmain x H&M Los Angeles VIP Pre-Launch that sold out by 7:40 pm (remind you that the doors had just opened 40 minutes prior), celebrities and their posse got their first hand on the line. Kaia Gerber looked radiant in our favorite piece, the high fashion white dress (picture above) who has also been seen on Gigi Hadid. Kaia attended the event with her mother aka super model Cindy Crawford. They are currently our favorite mother daughter duo. Other notable guest was Chris Brown, who immediately wore the white cotton shirt that read “Balmain Los Angeles” and one of the trendiest jackets from the line, with lots of gold stitching. Other notable guests included Jaime King, Ashley Benson, Tyga, Christina Milian, Selma Blair, Dylan Penn, Omarion, Jessica Szohr, Mena Suvari, Kat Graham, Mel B, Olivia Holt, Lydia Hearst and more. The H&M x Balmain collab is now available from November 5, in around 250 stores worldwide and online, but I am sure that it will be already sold out by the time that I finish this sentence.
