While dreaming about the upcoming designer collection with H&M, I realized I admire and really look up to designers who are not afraid of dilution when doing a diffusion line as this one. H&M is preparing something big for this fall: Isabel Marant for H&M!
How many fashionistas swear and swoon after Isabel Marant’s lovely creations? Although she only has 10 boutiques worldwide, Isabel Marant’s style and fashion approach are universally appealing and models as well as A-listers and anonymous fashionistas all over the world wear her work or lookalikes. Just take her Willow wedge sneakers as an example and you’ll see in what measure Isabel Marant has influenced our fashion shopping list!
Just imagine that her collaboration with the giant Swedish fashion retailer will be available in 250 stores across the Globe and online starting mid-November. Expect Marant uniforms pouring down like fall rain on the fashion streets of the world! I’m just perplexed at how some fashion news outlets perceive and push this historical collaboration! As the end of Isabel Marant’s coolness! So cool is about being exclusive? Un-affordable?
I do expect everyone and their dog to grab a piece of Marant’s H&M collection. But from there on, it’s just a matter of personal style and taste. I’m certain that all those who knew how to mix and match clothes before, they’ll do it again, even if Marant will suddenly be affordable to them as well! Ah, fashion people and their ever-so-boring snobbery! When will you learn that creativity comes from the most humble and unexpected places? And it is, make no mistake, most proficient when challenged (by financial or any other type of difficulties)!
