Anna Dello Russo for H&M
Another day another designer/high street collaboration! And this one may just be the most exciting yet as fashion freak (I mean this in only the most positive of ways) Anna Dello Russo teams up with high street hero H&M to produce an uber extravagant range of accessories... Now remember this is the woman who has multiple times declared "Anything that is practical isn't handsome!" Well is there any wonder we're all so damn excited?!
“I am excited by this collaboration: this is the first time H&M have involved a Fashion Director in a special project,’ Anna says. “This is the sign of an important evolution in fashion, and I am both thrilled and humbled to be the one chosen to lead it.
“I wanted to create precious accessories that are impossible to find. As a stylist I know 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.”
Judging by this sneak peek (above) the stylist has opted for statement after statement with lashings of gold, over the top embellishments, chunky bracelets, and of course one major turquoise colour pop...
Well the official press release did say it was an "unabashedly glamorous, precious and playful" range or rather the ultimate "expression of Dello Russo’s taste for ornamentation."
The collection launches October 4th 2012 so theres plenty of time to power up those elbows and I say spend it wisely!
