H&M Spring/Summer 2013

I stopped by the H&M showroom yesterday to check out next season's offerings. At first, I have got to admit being a bit perplexed by the collection, which basically seemed like it was on an Isabel Marant pilgrimage. A few too many boho-inspired pieces (see above future best-seller, the little red embroidered pom-pom jacket) looked like they might have been pulled straight from the étoile racks. I'm sure Marant fans will be delighted, but I'm starting to find this repetitive aesthetic a little tiresome, so was very glad to spot some more sleek and graphic pieces, like the snow white boots, which in my head are pretty much already mine. I can just imagine their point peeking out of baggy leather trousers. Or paired with that gorgeous 'red-to-toe' loose-fitted ensemble. The embossed leather mini, which will give an otherwise minimal silhouette an intriguing ethnic finish, also caught my eye. Do we really have to wait til spring? I really could do with these pieces now!

[edit] After stopping by Hedwig's blog today who compared the collection to Altuzarra F/W2012, I thought I would share this - looks like she may be on to something!

  15. Loving the first two images and all the white pieces! Still, I'm glad I'm missing all the press days this season. Generally I don't get anything out of them, apart from shoulder-ache from lugging my camera around.
