High end for high streett

Start saving for a rainy, or, rather, a sunny, day in November because the latest (and affordable) fashion collaboration has just been announced.

It’s all the rage at the moment: a high-end designer be producing a range of clothing for a high street brand. Such is the case with Balmain for H&M.

The collaboration was announced at the Billboard Music Awards in the US, models Kendall Jenner and Jourdan Dunn being dressed head to toe in the previously unseen collection.

The great news, on first peek, is that the pieces from the French fashion house are imminently wearable at any age and life stage, and are designed to flatter most body shapes and sizes. Think statement jackets featuring the signature military brocade and embellished long-sleeve knit tops.

Available in 250 stores around the world, the collection features clothing and accessories for men and women.

The bad news? The range won’t be released until 5 November this year, although, perhaps, we need those full three months to save.

Do you like it when high-end designers do more affordable collaborations with high-street retailers?
