I have recently fallen in love with the scarf print trend (apparently that happened last year) and I finally found a designer collaboration at H&M that I really like and at a great price point. If I’m being totally honest the only designer collaboration I ever invested in was the Maison Margiela x H&M from 2012. I especially liked the oversized turtleneck dress and I still have the hitched-up skirt. Lately, H&M has been quietly releasing collections with some very innovative designers. Earlier this month they launched a collection with South African designer Palesa Mokubung of Mantsho that sold out of almost all the items within days online and you’re lucky to find pieces at your local H&M.
Just last week, they collaborated with scarf designer Richard Allan. To be honest, I had never heard of him until I received the email that they launched a collection so I decided to check it out. I was actually impressed with the interpretation of his scarf designs to this capsule collection of tunics, dresses, pants and skirts. I immediately fell in love with the 60’s/70’s vibe that I was seeing. Gold and moss green palettes embraced the upcoming fall season with midi-skirts, bold prints and fabrics that will flatter any silhouette. On top of that, the price point is excellent with nothing in the collection exceeding $70 (which in my opinion is the most anyone should pay at H&M…just saying). Below are my favorites from the collection that I will be wearing now and transitioning into my fall wardrobe.
Patterned Satin Blouse & Pleated Satin Skirt
A-line Dress & Airy Blouse
Jacquard-Knit Pencil Skirt & Satin Dress with Tie Belt
These are just some of the ideas I have for these pieces. There are countless ways that you can incorporate these pieces into your current fall wardrobe. I hope H&M continues to work with these types of designers to create quality and classic pieces at price points that are accessible to everyone. Are you thinking of getting anything from this collection?
