High Street collaborations have created some amazing partnerships – Preen and Debenhams, Mary Katrantzou, Mark Fast, Ashish and Topshop, Roland Mouret at Gap and Clements Ribeiro at Evans.
But the Cilla Black of fashion marriages; combining style-stealth and limited wealth, remains H&M. Pairing with the likes of Stella McCartney, Karl Lagerfield, Lanvin, Versace and Jimmy Choo; H&M have proved themselves as the tour de force of perfect pairings, and the lastest addition to their stable of designer wear at high street prices looks likely to cause yet another stilleto stampede! Anna Dello Russo – style Maverick and legendary Fashion Director – gets set to bring her special touch to an exclusive line of accessories for H&M launching October 4th 2012.
Expect big colours, big stones, big impact – in fact, expect anything other than for this line to be boring. As the lady herself says:
“As a stylist I know accessorization is essential: it is the personal touch to any outfit. With these pieces everybody can have fun, turning an ordinary day into a fashion day.”
Psssssssssssssst... Whilst waiting for Anna’s collection to hit the stands, H&M look set to score another hit with the launch of a home range aimed at kids and babies. From star print cushions to animal themed friends, you're sure to find something to brighten up any lack lustre kids room. The range is in store now.
