It’s almost here! The H&M x Balmain #Balmaination collaboration is launching down under on November 5th and for Brisbane, we have an exclusive inside scoop with all the details you need to know for the launch day!
If you have no idea what I’m talking about, girl please, watch the video below for the flawlessness that creative director Olivier Rousteing has bestowed upon us.
Most of the items from the collection (including the pricing) are available here. Now if you’re in Brisbane for the launch, listen up. There are 3 things you need to know in order to be ready for the mayhem.
Where will it be?
Originally, H&M was set to open its Brisbane city store early November where the launch for the Balmain collaboration would take place, however construction has taken longer than expected. Indooroopilly’s H&M store will be the only store to stock the collaboration due to it’s size and capacity to hold the amount of crazed fans coming in.
What time does it open? When should I line up?
Doors open at 9am on November 5th but you’ll want to start lining up around 8am.
Is it just one line for mens and womens?
No, there are separate lines for each gender. When you arrive at the line, you will be given a buzzer which tells you what time you will be able to purchase the collection. You will be sectioned into 15 minute interval groups. Don't worry if you aren't in the first or second wave of groups, after each group finishes purchasing their products, the staff completely restock the shelves so the next group have the same chance as getting a product as the last group.
Prices for the collection start from $17.99 and go up to $649. Click here to see the *nearly* entire collection and remember to comment below your favourite piece from the collection!

*UPDATE* The collaboration carries sizes 4-14 for women and XS-L for men. Which I find appalling since both companies carry up to a size XL normally. I will not be attending the collaboration due to the recent price hike of $299.95 after Olivier wore one of the jackets that was originally priced at $49.95.
