By now all the pictures of the Balmain for H& M are out! We all know the dress Gigi Hadid wore, Kendall Jenner hot items and after seeing the Rousteing birthday bash there are no more surprises!
So what are the EBay buyers doing? They are already posting the hottest items that they know you will want with prices over a thousand dollars! You are to pay for your item and if for some reason they can’t obtain it you will get a refund! Yes I call this The EBay Scam!
The dress worn by Gigi Hadid that will sell for $649 will cost you $1300 on EBay! And the jacket on Kendall figure $1100! And we all know this will be a sellout before we can even get a peak!
Is this fair? Can anyone control this happening? Probably No to both questions but so disillusioning! The same thing happened at the Alexander Wang event so this time around I think I have lost my enthusiasm. The resellers on EBay have their strategy and that leaves very little on the racks after they hit! But preselling when they haven’t even purchased it sounds a little shady and should be something to look into by EBay!
Supply and demand is the entire story. Rousteing for Balmain has given H&M a great collection, fabulous advertising, and beautiful models who probably have made it actually better than it really is in person. In fact one review was that the leather looked stiff, wool a little cheap and the gold not so good! And the prices aren’t that cheap at H& M! But all that doesn’t matter when it comes to Balmain even though we’re getting the knockoffs! But still by Olivier Rousteing!!
