While just set back our clocks recently, H&M is springing ahead with their 2010 Spring/Summer Collection Lookbook. The 12 piece preview features model Katrin Thormann in ethnic inspired looks balanced with beige/grey neutrals, floral patterns, pops of bright colors and buttery leather creations.
Overall the collection has a luxe hippie feel with pieces made from sumptuous silks, leather, and intricate detailing. The sunglasses are hugely reminiscent of the ones that floated down Giles Deacon’s S/S 2010 runways and that Dree Hemingway hugely popularized afterwards. The other accessories (shoes and jewelry) are wildly oversized to make them stand out statement pieces. This upcoming season, it seems as a departure from the omnipresent jumpsuits that ruled the runways, and now into a foray of overalls – floral, leather, et al. I was never a fan of overalls back in my kiddie days, and don’t forsee me rocking them ever. I will love a lengthening maxi-skirt for life, but not sure if this one’s a good look.
What are your picks?
