Isabel Marant pour H&M

I'm super excited for Isabel Marant's collection for H&M to hit the shops.The pieces she's created are really varied ; some classic shapes and fabrics and some more obscure. Monochrome features heavily in this collection as well as prints and colours that are traditionally associated with that of tribal influences.I think collaborations like this are great , because it gives a wider range of people to access clothes as beautiful as this AND they're actually being sold at a reasonable price!

I particularly love the huge black and white jumper/coat used in the most popular campaign photograph.It just looks like the fluffiest , warmest , cosiest thing in the world!
I also really like that cropped jacket with the red beading , I think it's really cute , as is the slate grey coat next to it.I hate to say this but there is something I strongly dislike about the grey midi dress with the ankle boots - it looks so ugh and boring ( I'm sorry if that completely offends you - I don't know what it is about it.. I'm sorry)
Although , when designing for the mass market designers have to take certain criteria into consideration so that's what I'm blaming this on.

Oh and another thing , I assume you are aware of the completely unjust arrest and imprisonment of 28 activists , a videographer and photographer in Russia - known as the Arctic 30 .Well if you haven't, read about it here:greenpeace/arctic30/

They need our support , so please sign the petition (here)to be sent to Russian Ambassador in London which demands the release of these fantastic peaceful protesters - thank you.
