gettyimages-862953402-1508421642

To announce the launch of Erdem’s forthcoming collaboration with H&M, London-based designer Erdem Moralioglu brought an old English secret garden to Los Angeles. Walls of flowers and a swaying chandelier were the perfect backdrop to frame the designer and retail giant’s romantic eveningwear and coordinating suits. If Wednesday Adams ever married her true love in the English countryside, the set of Erdem and H&M’s collaboration would serve as the perfect inspiration.

The collection is chock full of signature Erdem items: Models descended from a large balcony wearing a series of floral-print dresses—some knee-length, some full gowns, some with cut-outs, bows, sheer details, and frills—an adorable pajama set, suits, and tweed. But Moraliouglu also planned some unexpected standout moments,...

H&M Is Launching the Unisex Line of Our Dreams

030917-hm-denim-lead

If there’s one thing to know about fashion, it’s that it’s always evolving. Borders blur and norms are challenged. Take for example menswear and womenswear influencing each other (think: boy-borrowed blazer jackets and wingtip oxfords). You know this. I know this. H&M knows this, and that’s why they’re launching a unisex denim collection called Denim United.

030917-hm-denim-4

On behalf of the Swedish clothing brand, spokesperson Marybeth Schmitt said it best: “It is very natural for us to launch a unisex collection as fashion is constantly evolving and intersecting and today we see there are no boundaries in democratic style. Fashion should always be inclusive.”

On Wednesday, H&M showed their spring 2017 Studio Collection, a see-now, buy-now line that was a first for the brand. "It feels kind of natural to do this because this is what we do when we have designer collaborations," H&M's Head of Design Ann-Sofie Johansson told me backstage ahead of the show. "We've been following what everyone is doing, of course, and we've done the more traditional way before this that's really nice as well, but this is a way of getting a little closer to our customers I think," Johansson said of why the brand decided to switch sale strategies. "We are there for them. And sometimes they're a little impatient and it's hard for them to wait half...

H&M Spring 2017: The Exact Drugstore Lipstick Used For the Brand’s Runway Show in Paris

GettyImages-646855620
Paris Fashion Week is about as fancy as you think it is. Show are held at places like the Louvre and the Rodin Museum. Models saunter about in outfits that cost the same as a mortgage. On a house. And the hair and makeup products used backstage are normally pretty price-y. But today, at the H&M spring 2017 show in Paris, makeup artist Mark Carrasquillo (who I once nervously helped assist during London Fashion Week) broke out a lipstick that costs a mere four bucks and can be found at most drugstores around the U.S. While wandering down a street full of beauty supply stores in Paris, Carrasquillo came upon a shop full of cheapie makeup, but cheapie makeup that was...
