It's true—2017 has arguably saved its most out-there fashion collab for last. Victoria's Secret just announced on its Instagram that the brand is teaming up with Balmain on a collection to be launched on November 29. The lingerie retailer teased the news with a black-and-white illustration featuring the words "Balmain loves VS."
As Vogue reports, Balmain will be designing looks for the VS Fashion Show in Shanghai as well as a capsule collection. "As for what to expect from Balmain’s VS line, you can bet on some sexily gilded items, lots of body-conscious silhouettes and the label’s luxury expertise being translated into both the runway and real-world items," Vogue explains. "While other designers have made several looks for the Victoria’s Secret show in the past, this collaboration marks the first time VS has ever partnered with a high fashion brand on items to be sold in its stores." Stay tuned as we learn more details.
Scroll down to see how Victoria's Secret teased the collaboration on its Instagram, plus we make predictions on how it might look.
Prediction #1: It will be especially sassy
Style Notes: Seeing as Oliver Rousteing's designs are usually figure-hugging and feminine, we can only predict that there will be an explosion of total sassiness on the catwalk between the two brands.
Prediction #2: Expect unusual fabrics
Style Notes: Plastic, as we've seen during the most recent Chanel catwalk, is big right now. It also appeared in the S/S 18 Balmain collection too.
Prediction #3: Embellishments
Style Notes: It wouldn't be a Balmain collection if there weren't any embellishments. We can imagine a few well-placed jewels on bras, not dissimilar to this outfit from the most recent Balmain show.
