Today I was invited to the private viewing of the highly anticipated H&M collection Isabel Marant pour H&M. Honestly when I first heard the news of the collaboration, I wasn't THAT excited about it plus I imagined it to be, dare I say, of poor quality. My visit today to the preview event had completely changed that delusional image in my mind. The quality of the pieces were superb! I tried on some of the knits and jackets on display and their fit was perfect! Isabel Marant managed to recreate one of her strongest pieces of previous collections to be accessible to the masses. Hippie-chic tie-dye tops and denim pants, cropped and colored leather pants with lace-up details, Parisian chic oversized jackets, slouchy and fringed boots, and shabby chic knits. I suddenly had a strong urge to walk away with some of the knits I have tried on, wishful thinking.
The collection also included kids wear, which was news to me, their pieces are really cool especially the shoes shown in the photo below. And of courses it included some really nice pieces for men as well, I'm already eyeing some pieces from the men's section too. I really hate it when i get sucked in a highstreet collaboration! It makes me feel restless and over-buy! I hope this time I'll make smarter choices.
