H&M’s New Face: Del Rey

Wednesday, July 18th, 2012
The lounge-inspired crooner everyone loves to hate, Lana Del Rey, is the new face of discount fashion Whether you hate her, love her or just want to punch that pouty mouth of hers, Lana Del Rey isn't going anywhere. Her latest spotlight grab? The singer is now the new face of H&M, the world's most reasonably priced urban mega-store. "The mood is very L.A. noir," H&M creative director Donald Schneider told Women's Wear Daily. "It’s inspired by our fall collection." According to WWD, Del Rey will be "the global face of H&M's fall advertising — with a second campaign planned for winter." Earlier this year, Mulberry named a $1,200 purse in Del Rey's honor, so H&M brings her down from Cloud 9 and a bit closer to her fans. Earthy. Found via: SPIN

Brian Rea for Marni

Monday, May 7th, 2012
Brian Rea's work makes an appearance in Marni's upcoming winter capsule collection New York Times readers will probably recognize the sketches featured on Marni's new capsule collection for winter 2013. The images of girls, penguins and oversized therapists--which can be seen on items like tees and totes--were created by Brian Rea whose work is featured as part of the paper's "Modern Love" column. Marni's been all about collaborations lately. Remember that H&M collection that sold out by noon? Also, previous seasons have included artwork by Kim Gordon and Claude Caillol. These exclusive pieces, which now includes Brian Rea sketches, are excellent proof that fashion can be art, and vice versa. Spotted on: T Magazine

Marni at H&M

Thursday, February 23rd, 2012

Marni and H&M team up just in time for spring Consuelo Castiglioni, Marni's founder and creative director, brings her signature quirky patterns and elegant designs to H&M. With a collection full of exciting clothes and accessories for men and women, it's safe to say Marni and H&M have done it again. H&M are known for collaborating with well established higher-end designers, but there is something about Marni that seems to really suit H&M's Swedish aesthetic. The Marni at H&M collection gives off sophisticated eclecticism and pairs that with a sporty allure--we're attracted. With a wide range of silks, knits and patent leathers, come March 8, when the collection becomes available, we're sure these clothes will be flying of the racks just in time for the sunshine to come on out. See more of the Marni at H&M s/s '12 collection below.
