To say I’m excited about the opening of H&M South Africa’s Sandton City store is an understatement. Not only for the mere fact that we have one more awesome international brand added to our shopping options but in addition to this excitement the official launch of their Balmain collaboration takes place tomorrow night (4 November). Although Balmain Creative Director (and Kardashian BFF) Olivier Rousteing has tried to make items accessible for plebs like myself, the prices will still be, well, pricey. But this is probably going to be the only opportunity I have in life to don a Balmain and pretend to be Kim. Get ready credit card, Balmain x H&M is comin’!
Here are the local prices of my favourite items in good old Rands (some in dollars):
Caged Heel: R2299.00
Wrap Skirt: R1199.00
Embellished Blouse: R4999.00
Sequin Dress: R2299.00
Embellished Dress: R5999.00
Rope Detail Top: R1499.00
Peep-toe Ankle Boot: R3799.00
So there you have it. As to how many of each item will be on sale I’m unsure of.
The exclusive VIP shopping preview happens tomorrow night (4 November) at the Sandton City store, to coincide with their official Jozi opening. Sorry, this one is invite only. Doors will then open to the public on 5 November!
If you’d like to get a teeny tiny bit more excited about this collection check out the preview fashion film below starring (you guessed it) Kendall Jenner. May the force be with you Balmain Army!
