Following teasers, lookbooks and campaign imagery, we can now reveal the full set of apparel* in H&M’s forthcoming collaboration with Balmain. As has been widely reported, the collection faithfully recreates Balmain’s glitz-and-glamour aesthetic at a lower price point, with Olivier Roustein’s ostentatious brand of military-inspired gear presented in all its glory. Red and black biker jackets, rhinestone-adorned blazers, and a ton of faux-military insignia are all present; the collection is heavy on statement pieces to say the least.

Those of you who want a bit of Balmain’s more tasteful side could do worse than trying out the cargo trousers, drop-crotch, heavily-tapered sweatpants, or the navy-style sweaters (or this editor’s personal favorite: the jumpsuit).

The line launches November 5 at H&M stores worldwide, as well as their webstore. In the meantime take a look at the Highsnobiety editorial team’s thoughts on the collection.

*Certain colorways of select pieces have been excluded in the gallery.
