This is the first time Victoria's Secret has collaborated with a high fashion designer for both its ornate Fashion Show and a retail collection that ties in with the runway show but is available in store to the public.

Balmain's creative director Olivier Rousteing said of the collaboration with Victoria's Secret that "it was an exchanging of ideas because we believe in the same kind of woman. A powerful lady, strong and confident girl that knows what she wants.”

Victoria's Secret released several preview images along with a promotional video offering a sneak peek of the collection. While a complete look from the Victoria's Secret collaboration was not shown, the video highlighted iconic Balmain silhouettes with mini skirts, strong suiting lines with defined shoulders, leather and thigh-high boots.

Rousteing said that the goal of the capsule was to give the public a "big shock" and that the collection was to be received as "magic."

The preview images include a $68 oversize graphic tee, a $128 mesh strappy high-neck bra and a $248 Swarovski long-line bra.

The collection will be available on November 29th in Victoria's Secret stores immediately after the Victoria's Secret runway show. The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show takes place this year in Shanghai on November 28th and airs on CBS.
