As I assume you all know, H&M and Balmain have collaborated on a range which launches in store tomorrow! There has been so much anticipation and looking at the collection it's clear to see why. The products look like original House of Balmain pieces for a fraction of the price, and I thought I'd showcase my top 9 picks (which were very hard to narrow down!). 

Beaded Velvet Jacket £299.99
My absolute favourite piece from the whole collection, without a doubt. This jacket is so stunning, I love the detailing and the pattern, the longline style and everything about it really. It's a silk blend, and the fact it's a blazer without a collar is so appealing to me.

Patterned Velvet Scarf £29.99
An all-black square scarf is such a staple wardrobe piece, easy to wear and great to style up an outfit. This is another silk blend, and the velvet detailing adds such a luxury effect. I love the mix of intricate patterns!

Long Wool Jacket £99.99
I saw this jacket on Alexa Chung and fell in love. Obviously, few could pull it off as well as she does, but I love the simplicity of this with the gold double breasted buttons. The only thing putting me off is the fact it's 100% and I can't wear wool! A perfect jacket if you can though.

Metal-decorated Leather Belt £39.99
There are a lot of amazing accessories in this collection, perfect if you can't afford the clothing, and this belt is definitely one of them! Fastening at the back, it makes a stunning statement waist belt to cinch in an oversized dress/tee!

T-Shirt with a Velvet print £24.99
This is like the basic must-have piece of the collection which I feel will be the fastest seller! You can get it in the white with black detailing, or all black, and I think it's just a great simple tee that can be styled up or down. 

Suede Boots £139.99
Black ankle boots are my main weakness in life. I have so many pairs and continue buying more, but I particularly love the gold detailing on this pair. Black and gold is a staple look for the collection, and the gold toe cap makes these really unique and I think they'd be great to style.

Velvet Blouse in a Silk Blend £59.99
This actually comes in both the blouse or a dress form, and is the same silk/velvet pattern as the scarf I mentioned. I love the high-neck, shoulder padded style which features a lot in the collection, and the gold zip detailing down the back and on the cuffs looks stunning. 

Block-Striped Jeans £59.99
I debated over whether to include these jeans or the leather pants and in the end these won, but check out the leather pants too! Striped jeans/trousers have been a big hit recently and I love the thickness of the stripes on these, along with the gold zip detailing which seems to be a staple of the collection!

Faux Fur and Leather Jacket £99.99
This is the boldest piece which I have chosen from the collection, and I think it makes such a gorgeous, statement winter jacket. I love the black and green blended together for the subtle pop of colour, and the leather collar and belt detailing really complete the look and pull it all together!

So it seems I went for the monochrome looks, but there are so many items and a lot of bold colours to check out!

What are your favourite pieces from the collection?
