On Wednesday I watched the H&M Studio autumn/winter 2015 show in Paris via livestream. It's the only show from this season's fashion weeks that I want to introduce on my blog, not because it's the best, but because it probably is the most accessible one.
In the press release about the show they said that it was a sporty and futuristic collection, which I only partly agree on. The main influences in my eyes seemed to be patterns from the 70s and the typical English-countryside-style with lots of quilted details and muted colors such as dark blue, khaki or grey. While some fabrics, such as lurex, did indeed suggest a futuristic style, it was rather the moonscape catwalk that gave you this impression. The only thing sporty were the tight pants and caps, which together with the boots merely reminded me of equestrian sports.
The show was initialized by music producer Caroline de Maigret, who was the DJ of the show and indeed the only one to wear a futuristic outfit. Also her song selection was inspired by the extraterrestrial setting, which in my eyes didn't match the looks at all. Nevertheless I really liked the collection, especially the XXL bags, the elegant materials and the domination of dark blue.
The collection will be available in 200 stores worldwide and online from September 10th. And for those who want to splurge on aestival pieces first: The H&M Studio spring/summer 2015 collection will be available from next Thursday, March 12th (in Luxembourg at the H&M Grand Rue 35).
