Rita Ora rocked a pearl-embellished blazer from the line last week to the Unicef Halloween Ball in London.

The line is pretty pricy for H&M, (that dress Gigi is wearing is $649) but these styles are far less than what Balmain typically costs. There are still some more H&M-like prices, with a variety of items under $100.  Those will likely go fast, so if you plan on shopping the styles make a plan to wake up early. Shop starting   8AM local time in selected H&M locations and 8AM EST online.

Here are a few of my fashion faves for under $100.

How To Shop Balmain x H&M

H&M spells out how to shop the collection below.

HOW MANY ITEMS CAN I BUY?

To allow as many customers as possible to buy from the Balmain x H&M collection, online purchases are limited to no more than one item per product, i.e. one size (shoes/garments) or piece (accessories). Store purchases are limited to no more than two items per product. This applies to all items in the collection.

SHOPPING IN STORE

The first 420 people in line will be given a colored bracelet – 14 colors with one for each group of 30 customers. Your color determines when it’s your time to shop in the designer collection area. Each group will have 15 minutes to shop. The bracelets are only for customers shopping the Balmain x H&M collection.

If you are not in the first 420, you can still shop in the store, as the braclet system only applies to the Balmain x H&M collection. After the last group shops we’ll open the designer collection area to all customers.

JOINING THE LINE

If you arrive before the store opens, please join the line and our staff will tell you how the shopping system works. As the designer collections are usually very popular, there are a few things to keep in mind for a great shopping experience.
