Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

H&M is showing us even more of that black and gold H&M x Balmain dress that Elle France revealed exclusively yesterday. The brand posted three Instagram photos of the look, including zoomed-in close-ups of all those embellishments. "Get amazed by the @BalmainParis x #HM details," one of the captions reads.

And then H&M lists the materials used in the dress: "gold ropes are essential in creating a signature look," and "decorations rich with metallic threads, rhinestones and pearl embellishments." This is the closest look yet at what shoppers can expect for the construction of the H&M x Balmain collaboration, which is slated to land in 250 international stores as well as online on November 5th.
