H&M Studio x colette
This nine-piece edition with the Parisienne boutique is inspired by the creative energy of NYC and is street-meets-sophistication with strong tailoring and feminine silhouettes.
“We really thought about the modern woman’s wardrobe and what she needs in it. Sharp outerwear, soft dresses, flattering knits and statement accessories. For the H&M Studio x colette collection, in particular, we not only combined contrasting fabrics in a garment but also brought in more colour contrast with the signature colette blue, which created a more graphic structure and a new, fearless attitude,” says Pernilla Wohlfahrt, H&M’s Head of Design and Creative Director.
The pieces include a navy and vibrant blue A-line anorak-poncho hybrid, a high-neck chiffon mini-dress with ruffled cuffs, ruffled hem, pin-tucks and fagotting (unique design), and a sleeveless round neck mini-dress that accentuates the female form in either strong blue satin or black and white hairy jacquard.
Sarah Andelman, founder and Creative Director of colette comments that “There is a real arty yet urban vibe to the H&M Studio x colette pieces, which not only feels right for the store, but also for like-minded women all around the world. They want that combination of striking yet wearable and, of course, be completely au courant.”
The main H&M Studio AW17 collection will be available from 14th September in selected H&M stores around the world and online. H&M Studio x colette will be available at the colette store and online for two weeks from the 21st August.
No word yet on the prices but I’ve got my eye on a couple of pieces.
