Although the weather may be behind schedule, as the snow hasn’t even hit the ground yet, in the fashion world, we’re already ten steps ahead. Preparing for the Spring/Summer season, H&M launched it’s collection to the press just recently in Toronto. Held in the downtown showroom, fun and colorful garments were displayed around the room, with a backdrop of an outstanding view of the city!
H&M’s SS ’12 collection is a complete line for men, women, and children. Modern tailoring to create crisp, fresh pieces is a big trend for next season, along with feminine and romantic touches. The women’s line also features whites, creams, bright yellow and orange, as well pastel blues and peaches. Accessories for women are chunky and bold, bringing modern fashion back to the 60’s.
For men, there are no boundaries! It’s all about adding a modern twist; pairing marina stripes and khakis, with bright orange, yellow, and red. The focus is on authenticity, which really came through throughout the collection. Pieces that really stand out are the long kimono floral jacket, the neon orange and teal wedge shoes, and geometric shaped white and orange bangles.
