Balmain x H&M’s 99-piece collection has been leaked

Someone’s in a little bit of trouble.

Balmain’s highly anticipated collection with retail mega-store H&M has just popped up on Instagram.

The collab, which is set to drop in November, was shared by writer Kathryn Swartz Rees. Rees leaked 99 pictures of the collection, which apparently covers its vast majority.

We are pretty amazed that she was able to get her hands on such highly embargoed material, and in a statement to New York Magazine Rees explained how she did it.

“The real story is terribly unexciting: H&M’s site was indexed by Google and I happened to search at the right time using the right parameters. All images were taken from that H&M URL. No surprise, that site is no longer live. A good note to web dev teams working on super hot designer collabs: stay in your sandbox!”
