Finally, another sneak peek of the forthcoming H&M x Balmain collection has hit the internet. Elle France shared an exclusive new image from the collaboration on Twitter this morning; it's the first image update we've gotten since the original announcement at the Billboard Music Awards. The new look aligns closely with Balmain creative director Olivier Rousteing's penchant for structural, military motifs, similarly to what Jourdan Dunn and Kendall Jenner wore in H&M's original collab announcement. Remember: the actual collection isn't dropping til November 5th, so buckle down for a long road of teasers to come.
