These Balmain for H&M earbuds are a gorgeous accessory that can be worn with literally any outfit.

The release of the Balmain for H&M capsule collection is causing a huge amount of buzz in the fashion world. The beautiful, limited-edition Olivier Rousteing pieces retail at a much higher price point than the fast-fashion retailer's usual fare. But H&M's high-profile designer collaborations -- starting with Karl Lagerfeld in 2004 -- are a marketing tool more than anything else. Although few of H&M's regular customers can afford the Balmain for H&M offerings, they solidify the brand's reputation as being at the forefront of fashion.

These Balmain for H&M earbuds are a compromise between the exclusivity of the collection and the easy access to fashion that H&M clientele desires. They're a small luxury item that allows the owner to possess a coveted designer item without breaking the bank.
