H&M has teamed up with the iconic Parisian concept store colette for an exclusive H&M Studio AW17 capsule collection. The nine-piece collection was inspired by H&M Studio AW17 designs and features a special color palette based on colette’s signature blue, plus two completely unique designs. The street-meets-sophistication of AW17 was inspired by the creativity and energy of New York City, with strong tailoring combined with feminine silhouettes and punk influences for a hard-edged, yet chic, look.
“There is a real arty yet urban vibe to the H&M Studio x colette pieces, which not only feels right for the store, but also for like-minded women all around the world. They want that combination of striking yet wearable and, of course, be completely au courant,” says Sarah Andelman, founder and Creative Director of colette.
The H&M Studio x colette collaboration launches on August 21st and will be available in-store and online at colette for two weeks, along with selected pieces from the core H&M Studio AW17 collection before its global release date on September 14th. The core H&M Studio AW17 collection will be available from September 14th in select H&M stores around the world and online at hm.com.
The nine pieces in the exclusive collection for colette include garments such as a navy and vibrant blue A-line anorak-poncho hybrid in a wool-nylon mix (unique design), a vibrant blue high-neck chiffon mini-dress with ruffled cuffs, ruffled hem, pin-tucks and fagotting (unique design), a fit-and-flare knee-length yarn-dyed checked dress with long sleeves, round neck, pleating from the waist and hand-painted graffiti overtop and a sleeveless round-neck mini-dress with fishtail hem, wide trim at arm holes and seams to accentuate the female form in either strong blue satin or black and white hairy jacquard.
