The Favourite, H&M

Today I trekked down to the newly opened H&M flagship store to check out the stock. I was pleasantly surprised to find things that weren't at all casual or beachy (which was all I ran into in our other two stores). I saw many pieces I liked. A few dresses and jackets. None of them were in my size, however. I couldn't find anything smaller than size 8 really. So I'll go back sometime after all the hoopla has calmed down to check it out again. I should ask when they expect to restock...

Now that the H&M Fall line previews have been released, I am extremely glad to have a larger store open where I might actually have the chance to come by some of their more editorial items. I love the layers and layers of knits, dramatic hooded coat, long cardigan, floaty blue skirt, the little beige jacket (is that leather? it reminds me of Marni!) and many many others things. Are these shoes actually H&M as well? They look extremely alike to the Chloe versions. Oh and those black over the knee boots are divine. I'm salivating.

Wow, some incredible pieces! I was just lamenting on another person's blog about the lack of H&M' for me. They don't ship to Australia, and we don't have stores here. Woe.

Thanks for showing me a preview of the coming autumn collection - it looks incredible - and very fashion forward for h&m. I've always been a fan, but I'm glad they are finally pushing the boat out and getting a little edgier with their pieces. I shall have to check it out for myself! Did you get a peek at the mens selection?? Cx

Sabrina you´re right everything is so divine! I love knitwear!

Sabrina said...

Bi-style: Yep! They'll probably start slowing releasing some pieces in Late July or August. Don't worry, I'm sure they'll end up in Germany long before we see anything here in Vancouver heh
