The wait is over – H&M have released the lookbook for Anna Dello Russo’s collection, launching on October 4th. (I wrote about the collectio here, and here). Margareta van den Bosch, creative adviser for H&M, told WWD: “There is something feisty and over the top in this collection”.
No shit, Sherlock. Featuring almost 50 pieces, ranging from jewellery to sunglasses, shoes, luggage, handbags and a feathered headpiece, the collection is anything but subtle. Gold and turquoise feature heavily, as do snakes, crystals, stiletto heels and dangly pendant ear-rings.
Blinging and excessive as it is, the thing is, it looks surprisingly wearable. And while I don’t have any word on euro prices, WWD report that dollar prices are extremely reasonable - from $24.95 for a pair of earrings to $299 for the thigh-high black leather boots.So I don’t hold out too much hope for getting my hands on that little turquoise clutch. This one is gonna fly.
Anything calling your name?
