FIRST LOOK: Anna Dello Russo for H&M
Expect gold, gold, galore and over the top ornamentation with the announcement of H&M’s newest guest collaboration with Vogue Japan’s Editor-at-Large, Anna Dello Russo. The special accessories collection will be available at 140 H&M stores worldwide and online in October 2012. Known for her extravagance, Dello Russo has expressed her excitement over the collaboration, stressing that “accessorization is essential: it is the personal touch to any outfit. With these pieces everybody can have fun, turning an ordinary day into a fantastic fashion day.”
If this past March’s Marni for H&M collaboration was any indication, Dello Russo’s accessories line (consisting of jewelry, shoes, sunglasses, bags… and even a trolley) is looking to receive a fabulous response from shoppers. Of its selective guest collections, H&M has only worked with designers up until now. As a fashion icon, Dello Russo has proved to be a fashion force to be reckoned with. H&M’s Creative Advisor has even noted that “the collection is a celebration of excess, fantasy, and decoration.”
Ooh… we like the sound of that.
