H&M is expanding its designer collaboration repertoire and adding avant-garde design team Maison Martin Margiela to the mix. The capsule collection — essentially a lineup of the label's greatest hits since its 1989 inception — drops in stores today, and you can expect architectural silhouettes, draping, trompe l'oeil touches, and the sense of androgyny that marks Margiela's aesthetic. Watch as FabSugar Editor Marisa Tom walks us through our top picks including a flashy clutch you need to scoop up for the holidays!
Remember during Couture week when Anna Dello Russo was spotted frolicking around Place Vendome in a pink ball gown and toting a set of turquoise luggage? Turns out that luggage — and in fact all the accessories she was wearing, right down to the bejeweled gator sunglasses perched atop her head — belong to her upcoming H&M collaboration. (The dress was Oscar de la Renta; the frolicking, part of a photo shoot for the September issue of Vogue Russia.)
Now that the issue of Vogue Russia has finally hit newsstands, those images — plus others — have made their way onto the web. What they reveal is not only a much more complete look at the collection, but also a much more intriguing one. Diamante "A" earrings, oversized chain necklaces emblazoned with Dello Russo's name, hinged alligator collars, giant deer charms, bejeweled minaudieries, gold ankle booties — all the pieces are big, glitzy, and very ADR.
