Balmain x H&M Military x Jetsetter Inspired-First Look at the Men’s Collection
Finally a Sneak-Peak at the Balmain x H&M Men’s Collection 2015
In 2014, Streetzblog had a very fun time tracking the Alexander Wang x H&M collection, from Rumor, to Men’s and Women’s first looks, to even shopping early in the morning for the goods. This year, it’s Balmain who is doing the H&M Collab. Seems the clothes took a while to appear, but here they are! At least some of the guys gear.
Looks to be a lot of Military Green, some black and wow a Michael Jackson inspired leather jacket. From what I’ve seen from Balmain’s main label, some of their clothing has too much accoutrements and bling to be wearable, unless you’re a Rock or Movie star. This collection, so far, looks pretty wearable. My choices in order are: The Green Pea Coat, The Kicks, The textured backpack, the black pants with the zippers, and the Military shirt. I doubt I could wear the black jumpsuit or red leather jacket anywhere I go. Overall, pretty wearable and the quality is looking spot on.
Projected date for the collection to be in store and on-line is Thursday November 5, 2015.
