Balmain: he arrived, he left

Hello, how is everything? Did you get anything from Balmain for H&M yesterday? I got a couple of pieces, and that was it! On the website,(when I managed to get in) there was almost nothing . Everything was finished in few hours! what a success !!! At least, I  got this black trousers and this bracelet.

I wanted to buy these earrings and this bracelet but it was impossible!!! too late!! Also  the website was collapsed the whole morning and I didn’t get access until 12!.

In some store was even worse, long queues and then people running and scrambling to get  some pieces. Check the video in this article, it was crazy!

Well, at least I got something, I can not complain. Now I can’t wait to see what I got.

It is not the first time that H&M works with well-known fashion designers, these collaborations started in 2004 with Monsieur Karl Lagerfeld, here the list of previous collaborations with designers:

  • 2004: Karl Lagerfeld
  • 2005: Stella McCartney, Elio Fiorucci, Solange Azagury-Partridge
  • 2006: Viktor & Rolf
  • 2007: Roberto Cavalli
  • 2008: Rei Kawakubo and Comme des Garçons
  • 2009: Matthew Williamson, Jimmy Choo, Sonia Rykiel
  • 2010: Sonia Rykiel, Lanvin
  • 2011: Versace
  • 2012: Versace, Marni, Maison Martin Margiela
  • 2013: Isabel Marant
  • 2014: Alexander Wang

And here I show you some of my acquisitions over the years:

Roberto Cavalli. My first purchase was this Roberto Cavalli dress, I have a lot of affection for it. Still it’s in my closet and I wear it  occasionally. This picture is from this summer.

Matthew Williamson. Everybody likes this dress, one of the best investment I made! I bought it in 2009 and it’s still in perfect conditions.

Jimmy Choo. After long hours of queuing I only managed to buy this bracelet 😦 but after a few weeks I found this dress in the  H&M Edinburgh, what a nice surprise!

Lanvin. The last time I was wearing it in a wedding a year ago,  I keep it for special occasions


Versace. The truth is that this dress fits like a glove! Perfect for any summer night.


Alexander Wang. Top and leggings for the gym


And now Balmain, no dresses this time, anyway we will see how the look that trousers !!!

So, these are my little treasures.

And you, did you manage to buy anything? did you spend long time queuing or in front of  the computer? Tell us your experience.
