H&M announced its collaboration this fall with Parisian fashion house Balmain and its artistic director Olivier Rousteing during the Billboard Music Awards.

Rousteing and models Kendall Jenner and Jourdan Dunn walked the red carpet at the Billboard Music Awards, revealing the first pieces of the collection. Through social media, H&M and Balmain invited fans to join a movement of togetherness: #HMBalmaination.

"I want to talk to my generation: this is my main purpose as a designer. H&M allows me the unique possibility of bringing everyone into the world of Balmain, getting a piece of the dream and creating a global #HMBalmaination: a movement of togetherness, fueled on a hashtag. The collaboration felt extremely natural to me because everybody can connect with the H&M brand. It calls for unity, and I am all for it", says Olivier Rousteing.
 
"We are excited to have Balmain as our guest designer at H&M and create a truly involving experience for everybody. With its mix of couture spirit and street wear attitude, Balmain owns a unique style, at once opulent and direct, sensual and energetic. It is also closely linked to the show business and music worlds, which adds another element of surprise," says Ann-Sofie Johansson, Creative Advisor at H&M.

Available from November 5, in around 250 stores worldwide and online, the collection will feature clothing and accessories for both women and men.
