Isabel Marant x H&M
So on November 14th fashion lovers on a budget all over the world will be able to get their hands on something designed by the one and only Isabel Marant. The photos of the collection were leaked (how unfortunate.. or is it?) and show some very typical Marant pieces. Gorgeous of course, but I can’t help feeling like this is very expected.
“I thought this was a good opportunity to say, ‘That belongs to me’,” designer Isabel Marant said to British Vogue about the collaboration. Instead of having fast fashion chains knock off her designs, Marant decided to partner with H&M so she could ensure her standards of design and quality were followed. Awkward, since H&M has knocked off her designs plenty of times. Remember the jeans with the print along the side of the leg? Yeah, H&M knocked those off and now they are selling them again but with Isabel Marant’s approval.
I don’t think I will be getting in line and fight other girls for this collection on November 14th, however the coats and knit wear are so beautiful, I might find myself refreshing H&M.com over and over to snatch one of the coveted pieces of this collaboration.
