H&M creative advisor, Sofie Johansson announced to WWD:

“We are excited to have Balmain as our guest designer at H&M and create a truly involving experience for everybody. With its mix of couture spirit and streetwear attitude, Balmain owns a unique style, at once opulent and direct, sensual and energetic. It is also closely linked to the show business and music worlds, which adds another element of surprise.”

The collection will also have its own hashtag in Rousteing’s hope of starting a global movement: #HMBalmaination.

“I want to talk to my generation: this is my main aim as a designer. H&M allows me the unique possibility of bringing everyone into the world of Balmain, get a piece of the dream and create a global #HMBalmaination: a movement of togetherness, fueled on a hashtag. The collaboration felt extremely natural to me: H&M is a brand that everybody connects to. It calls for unity, and I am all for it,” Rousteing told WWD.

The collection will be available online and at 250 H&M stores worldwide including accessories and apparel for both women and men for their winter collection on November 5.
