Have you reached fashion collaboration fatigue yet? In a day and age when Virgil Abloh is designing limited-edition pieces for just about everyone, we've come across one more pairing that's worth getting excited about. Victoria’s Secret just announced on Instagram that iconic French label (and Kardashian/Jenner favorite) Balmain is designing looks for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in November — but that's not all. Turns out, the Victoria's Secret x Balmain offering will be available for purchase in stores and online on November 29, nine days after the event films in Shanghai.
According to Vogue, this collaboration marks the first time Victoria’s Secret has partnered with a high-fashion brand on items that will be available to the public; the magazine also notes that the line will likely include "some sexily gilded items, lots of body-conscious silhouettes, and the label’s luxury expertise being translated into both the runway and real-world items."
While all other details are currently under wraps, we'll be anxiously awaiting a preview of what's to come. Get ready to become a part of the #BalmainArmy — or in this case, a member of the #VSxBALMAIN movement. (We truly appreciate designer Olivier Rousteing's dedication to social media).
We’ve reached out to both Victoria’s Secret and Balmain and will update this post if/when we hear back.
