Erdem x H&M Party Highlights aka Give Me All the Florals

19 Oct

The first fast fashion collaboration I remember was when Roland Mouret teamed up with Gap back in 2006 and the designer/high street retailer team-up has been going strong for over a decade now. In fact Karl Lagerfeld did one with H&M in 2004—for some reason I don’t remember this—and H&M has produced collabs with a number of designer brands including Balmain, Stella McCartney,  Comme des Garçons and Versace. Now is the turn of Erdem.

Uniqlo is my to go to brand for indulging in the high/low collaborations and the only reason why I didn’t end up with about 10 things from the recent J.W. Anderson team-up was because they had sold out of the items I wanted before payday. But I don’t need any more sweaters (I always need more sweaters).

Bringing me back to H&M x Erdem and there are a number of items I am already eyeing up from the collection—namely leopard print coats, ladysuits, sweaters. And at the runway show party there are various celebs on hand sporting new looks that I am very tempted to add to my wardrobe.Pajama adjacent clothing is always going to win me over as is Kirsten Dunst; the two combined is fashion heaven and Erdem’s signature florals is a repeated motif.Perfect for winter botanics and I am coveting Kate Mara’s dress hard. And I can almost afford it. Perfect for one of the weddings I am going to next year. Throw a white tee underneath and hey it’s the ’90s again. I would also like to know what red lipstick Alexa Chung is wearing.On the runway there was plenty of menswear inspired pieces AND menswear; here is Taylor Kitsch sporting some grey pants that look great on him (and can look great on you too).Zendaya shows off one of the super feminine ensembles and leans hard into the retro vibe with her ’50s looking ‘do. I love everything about this and this whole collab is very wearable and pretty timeless. This is exactly what you want from fast fashion.

And here is that beautiful teaser ad. Let’s rewatch.

Erdem x H&M will be available in selected stores Thursday, November 2. And you can view the collection here.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

5 Dec

Award shows and end of year celebrations are upon us which means fancy frocks aplenty. This week’s “Out of the Box” also includes a magazine editorial with someone who is making the style round up for an immense fourth week in a row.

Amy RyanAmy Ryan looks delightful at the Gotham Awards doing the black and winter florals thing with aplomb. Major red lipstick points and her shoes are fantastic.

Jenny SlateAsymmetric peplum is not the easiest of looks to work, but Jenny Slate is killing it in this Roksanda skirt and top. Black nail polish was on trend at the Gotham Awards and there’s a whole ’40s vibe to this look. Imagining Janet Snakehole’s pillbox hat and cigarette holder as accessories (I pretty much always want Janet Snakehole’s hat).

Ruth WilsonThe final of the three Gotham Awards looks is one that could be a big ball of huh, however I am all in and Ruth Wilson’s Dior ensemble with the oven mitt front pocket and crinkly top; I just really like the color combination. Soft pink lipstick with this updo and the silver metallic shoe goodness sets the whole thing off.

Michelle Dockery British Fashion AwardsMichelle Dockery continues to make style choices that go way beyond English Rose blah and at the British Fashion Awards she wore this foliage fantastic Erdem while presenting Erdem Moralioğlu with the Womenswear Designer of the Year accolade.

Gillian Jacobs FlareMoving on and it is the fourthOut of the Boxin a row for Gilliam Jacobs. Covering the new issue of Flare Jacobs once again gives good quote and pose. After Bust’s ’60s inspired shoot this is very much in the present and the Timo Weiland skirt and top combo paired with super funky Alexander Wang shoes is already giving me ideas for spring. Jacobs discusses the two TV shows she successfully landed in 2009 and why she choose Britta “It was a real Sliding Doors moment. My character on The Good Wife was sort of peripheral, Community was more central.” I adore Britta and even more I adore how much Jacobs loves this character “It’s more interesting and fun to be flawed. I also love that Britta bounces back no matter what.” Jacobs also briefly discusses her forthcoming Girls appearance with little detail aside from asking costume designer Jenn Rogien to steer clear of the very Britta stripes and leather.
