The time has come, Thursday 14th November is nearly upon us and why am I excited? If you had asked me two months ago I wouldn’t have had a clue; however after seeing numerous images plus the catwalk preview as well as reading various interviews with the woman herself; I am now eagerly anticipating the arrival of Isabel Marant for H&M!! Despite the designer’s RTW line not being one of my favourites, Marant has come up with the most wearable, design lead, awesome collaboration with H&M; perhaps because Marant’s clothes are in essence a high end designer version of H&M – laid back chic! This is by far the best looking collaboration H&M has done to date – heaven on the high street; the best bits….?
Isabel Marant for H&M: Sweatshirt £34.99, Oversized Blazer £99.99, Coat £99.99, Kids Canvas Shoes £29.99 and Bomber Jacket £79.99
Wanted – Topshop Boutique Leather Pinafore. Pinafore’s can have both good or bad connotations dependant on your experience of them at school; luckily mine happen to be all good and I cannot resist the perfect wardrobe staple. Step forward Topshop who have yet again delivered with a variety of on-trend options. They have, in fact outdone themselves this year with the best selection of pinafore’s I’ve seen since my mum came back from the school shop with one in each colour! Easy and chic, smart or casual; whatever you fancy a pinafore will fit the bill, perfect for Christmas day perhaps.
However, beware: No one wants to look like an extra from St Trinian’s….A pair of clumpy (preferably MiuMiu) boots, chic polo-neck, statement bomber and little beanie (for added warmth) will ensure you look more fashion cool than fashion school!!
