Update: the hotly anticipated Balmain collection for H&M goes on sale TODAY! But with people braving the rain to camp out since last night, we have a feeling it's going to be chaotic. You know what they say - forewarned is forearmed - so work out what you want before you hit the shops with our gallery of every piece in the collection above.

Dazzling in jewel tones and dripping with embellishment, last night's show made one thing clear: Olivier Rousteing hasn't held back for his H&M collection

His Balmain Army owned the runway in pieces that wouldn't have looked out of place in the S/S '16 show - daring mini-dresses, out-there feathers, lashings of vibrant silks and fierce blazers gilt with gold hardware. For anyone who's ever lusted after a Balmain piece on the runway but not had the budget, it was heaven on a catwalk.

The collection speaks for itself, but when you have pretty much every It-model showing it off - Kendall Jenner opened, Gigi Hadid closed and Karlie Kloss, Alessandra Ambrosio, Joan Smalls and Jourdan Dunn, among others, walked in between - suffice to say desire for the goods reached fever pitch. We have until November 5 (just two weeks, people!) to wait for it to reach Australia - next level queues are guaranteed.
