The H&M collaboration with Balmain that hits the stores on November 5 could be one of the most expensive yet.

Prices start around £12 ($17.99) for accessories. But at the top end, they far outstrip usual H&M prices, at £299.099 for a leather jacket or £399.99 for the embroidered jacket and an embellished dress worn by Gigi Hadid. Satin blouses, skirts and trousers are around the £50 mark.

It’s not the first time H&M collaborations outstrip their usual prices. The 2013 Isabel Marant collaboration had an average price of £106.49. More expensive collections also included Matthew Williamson (average price £112.76), Lanvin (£129.08) Comme des Garcons (112.76) and Roberto Cavalli (£110).

Some H&M customers have already voiced their disappointment at the prices on the Balmain items.

Here’s how the collection compares:
