Balmain's Forthcoming Kids' Collection Includes a $5,955 Dress
North West has probably already placed her order.
It’s hard to imagine something more adorable than the multiethnic crew of gorgeous children Balmain trotted out to announce its upcoming 55-piece kids’ collection, launching in June at the French house’s boutiques and online. We can already picture the eventual campaign starring North West.
The four pint-sized models are wearing mini-me versions of instantly recognizable Balmain pieces, including gold-buttoned blazers, skinny pants with moto detailing, velvet and gold-tipped boots. The brand, helmed by Olivier Rousteing, is targeting boys and girls aged 6 to 14 with this line that includes Japanese denim and a fur coat. It is being produced in-house.
Of course, just because the pieces are mini versions of the originals worn by an army of A-listers — including all the Kardashian-Jenners, the Hadid sisters, Jourdan Dunn and now Cindy Crawford — doesn’t mean they’re priced accordingly. According to Balmain, pieces start at 190 euros ($205) for a sleeveless tee and reach $5,955 (at the current exchange rate) for an embroidered black dress.
