This year's H&M's eagerly anticipated designer collaboration with French fashion house Balmain lands tomorrow morning (finally) and the fashion world seems to be pretty exicted about it.

With countless teasers on social media, followed by the revelation of the full collection and the (rather disappointing for many) price list; then the campaign featuring Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid and Jourdan Dunn; a star-studded fashion show; and some sort of music video featuring the models wearing the items, in which Olivier Rousteing himself appears as the man orchestrating it all from a glassed booth.

Balmain for H&M will be available to shop from 9am on Thursday 5 November worldwide. We've given you pretty much everything you need to know about it, but what are our picks?

The collection is expensive, so we've narrowed it to top 10 pieces from the womenswear range. It wasn't easy, but these selection features some items that are very similar to Balmain's mainline, and we've got our eyes in a embroidered jacket from the men's collection, too.
