Alexander Wang for H&M

I am already planning my trip to the Orlando H&M, and November 6th can’t come soon enough… During the Coachella Music Fest in Cali, H&M announced the next designer they would be teaming up with: ALEXANDER WANG!

The American fashion designer and past winner of the Fashion Fund (2008), is very influential in the industry, creating designs that are show his edgy twist on basic peices. The NY-based designer’s work has been seen all over. He is the current creative director for Balenciaga.

The line, available 11/6, will be sold in over 250 stores worldwide as well as online and will feature designs for both men and women. I’m hoping I can save all my pennies by the time this comes out.

Impatiently Waiting… Isabel Marant x H&M

Ever since the announcement of Isabel Marant’s collaboration with H&M, things have been kept under tight wraps. With just under 2 months left until the release of the line, I can’t help but wonder what it will have to offer. Thanks to the latest issue of Harper’s Bazaar (October), we can all have a small glimpse of what to expect on November 14.

Some Things To Be Excited About

marcjacobsbeautyWith the recent release of the Marc Jacobs Beauty collection, it has got me pretty excited about the upcoming collaborations in fashion.

Starting September 15, CFDA’s award winning fashion designer Phillip Lim will be debuting his long awaited collection for Target. It’s an exciting week for Lim, seeing how the release follows his NY runway show which will display his most recent collection for the 3.1 Phillip Lim line. The long-awaited collaboration with Target will feature simple pieces for men and women with some fun prints thrown into the mix. And for those of you who have dreamed of owning the Pashli Satchel, this might just be your chance to get the next best thing and for a fraction of the cost.

With over 100 pieces to choose from and prices starting at just 20 bucks (reaching $300), you’re sure to love this line.

Needless to say, my arm was sore.

Here it is… Versace for H&M spring line

Hopefully we all got a chance to shop the Versace for H&M fall line last November. It seemed as if no one could get enough of the bold prints and colors Donatella Versace created. The line shut down websites, took over EBAY, and had people waiting outside of stores for hours hoping to get that special item. This January, H&M is expected to receive the same type of love when they release Versace for H&M’s spring line. The spring selection is full of great clothes for men and women, and is a bit toned down from the fall line. Here is a peek of what you can expect January 19, 2012…

With so many great things it’s hard not to want all of these items!

Marni for H&M

Shortly after the Versace for H&M line sold out, H&M announced their next huge collaboration. Marni for H&M!

This highly anticipated clothing line is expected to become available in March. Consuelo Castiglioni of the Marni label has joined forces with Sofia Coppola to set the vision of the Marni for H&M line into motion. The team will work together to produce the print campaign and advertizements.

 

Prep for these Collaborations!

I am sure we can all agree that fashion collaborations are among the greatest things ever!

Just weeks ago, Target made some OUTRAGEOUS sales when their Missoni for Target line hit the stores.  Nearly 40,000 items had been listed by sellers on ebay.com in hopes of profiting (which many did).

After such success and wonderful collaborations in the past (Zac Posen, Tucker, Libertine, THAKOON, etc.), Target has now announced Jason Wu’s spring line, available February 5, of next year.

If you can’t wait until then, start preparing for Versace for H&M which first hits stores November 17 and again January 19 debuting an early spring collection. The line will include menswear and women’s clothing as well as house-wear, so get ready! Click for H&M Locations!

And Christian Siriano (the season four winner of Project Runway), currently has a fall line of handbags and shoes available at Payless ShoeSource.
