Thanks to the luxury fashion house's collaboration with high street giant H&M, you can now channel your inner Kendall Jenner for a fraction of the price.

Balmain's lust-worthy embellished mini dresses and trophy dresses usually retail for up to €10,000.

But now that fashion wunderkid Olivier Rousteing is to launch an affordable collection with H&M, Balmain's instantly recognisable aesthetic is now within the reach of the masses.

The range will feature Balmain's signature silhouettes - bodycon mini dresses, draped tulip skirts in opulent jewel tones, sequined metallic shifts and double-breasted power blazers.

Creative Director Rousteing always puts an emphasis on sharp tailoring, luxe fabrics and strong colours such as emerald, fuchsia and gold.

Surprisingly, Rousteing did not enlist any of his 'Balmain Army' such as Kendall Jenner, Joan Smalls or Rosie Huntington Whiteley to appear in the lookbook - while Kendall does star in the advertising campaign alongside Gigi Hadid and  Jourdan Dunn.

However, the collection won't be a bargain - while a complete list of prices has not yet been announced,some dresses are expected to be priced at up to €540.

The collection lands at H&M's flagship store in Dublin's College Green and online on November 5th.
