I must confess, when I arrived at the H&M Showroom for the Preview event of its Autumn 2013 collection, I didn't expect it will turn into a real party. The DJ was playing the latest Daft Punk song, cocktails were rolling at the bar, everybody was having a good time and of course, the clothes were stunning!
The collection was breathtaking, combining masculine and feminine style, which created an overall theatrical atmosphere. The jackets had a geometrical shape and some were embellished with bohemian elements, while the dresses had a delicate cut. The key pieces of the collection were the tail coat and the sequin dress, the black leather trousers, and the bohemian style vest. The accessories were vintage inspired, the over-the-knee boots and the cap strongly reminded me of Brigitte Bardot.
I especially liked the dark colours of the collection: black, khaki, navy blue, with subtle red and metallic touches. The fabrics were very high-quality - wool, cotton, velvet, jersey, fake fur, leather and silk, giving a luxurious look to the clothes.
Starting the 5th of September, the collection will be available in over 200 H&M selected stores and also online. And that's not it - they will also release a Home Decor line here in Romania.
One more thing - this morning H&M announced its autumn collaboration with Parisian designer Isabel Marant! I nearly fell off my chair when I read about it!
