Extravagant embellishments for days.

After H&M dropped the full lookbook for the Balmain collab last week, the fast fashion retailer has unveiled images and prices for every single piece from the highly anticipated collection. The Balmain x H&M line, available Nov. 5, will be the Swedish brand's most costly collaboration yet, with intricately beaded and embellished dresses running from $199 to $649.

Compared with past collabs, H&M creative adviser Ann-Sofie Johansson told WWD, "this collection is a little bit more expensive. The price of a T-shirt with the Balmain logo is €29.99 [or $34 at current exchange]. It’s important to have that range." Although more expensive, the items are still more affordable than standard Balmain pieces, which Olivier Rousteing says he's actually "pushing to put the prices down" at the French fashion house.
