BALMAINxHM grande opening finally happened and I was lucky enough to get some pieces I was craving for, even though I was not standing in the line since 5 AM. Yesterday was the first time I was actually in front of the store before it even opened (yes I know, I thought I will never do that haha) but it payed off! It was a special kind of the experience I have to say :D. We arrived to the city less than an hour before the H&M opened and as expected there were plenty of people lined up for the new collection already! Some of them have been waiting there since 5am and they even had a heater :D. I suppose it must have been quite chilly early in the morning though, haha. Meanwhile we were standing in the line and drinking coffee I checked some videos from the launch of collection in other countries and I was trying to understand how people could get so crazy and passionate (in a way) about the clothes. Finally the long awaited opening happened and even we were not among the first ones we still got our hand on some pieces. There was not much choice left, we just took what was left and it seemed those were exactly the pieces we were hoping for. So lucky!
One of my favourites had been this coat I was wearing it today in the morning and even though it seems more a trench coat than something else it’s really warm. I was searching for a bit longer blazer kind of coat to style it with those over knee boots and this one feels just more than a perfect option! I saw some negative comments regarding the collection as that everything was made by H&M, Balmain only gave the creations, but I am positive surprised since the quality of this one is really good! It’s 100% wool and I feel like a million bucks in this one! Cannot wait to show you other pieces I got too :). I would love to hear your “waiting-in-the-line” experience and what you got for yourself 😉
