olivier rousteing is complete shit, he doesnt know how to design at all and is still pulling from decarnins work at balmain, which i might add is still selling better than the seasonal collections to this day. Some argue that rousteing is better at womenswear but I beg to differ, shit is still poop but spelled differently.

I think it's a great move by both companies. H&M adds way more sparkle than it could ever add while Balmain becomes known to a much younger clientele; the one that is after, based on their current marketing strategy.

Mmm, ah, yes. It certainly won't be complete garbage for tool bags like every other H&M x *whomever*

I am def curious about it. I was really impressed with the Alexander Wang x H&M collab.

I wonder though if Balmain has what it takes...

It depends how you look at it. Business-wise is a solid decision. Here's an article about a very similar situation, Lily Pulitzer's decision to make a collection for Target. A lot of people thought it was a bad decision, but it turns out it wasn't. Same thing will apply to Balmain x H&M.

the wang collection had too much stuff which was "out there" to appeal to the mass market IMO. It was very likely people copped cz they figured it was a collabo with some big name fashion brand, and I've heard of a few people who bought and resold despite the stuff being H&M priced at a few hundred

 

That said, wonder what they'll come up with. I'm thinking biker denim possibly?.

This. The clothes are tacky and ridiculous. Olivier is a genius at branding, which for the people he's targeting, matters more than design skill. This New Yorker article spelled it out.
