Marking the first time the retailer has paired with not a celebrity or an existing fashion brand or designer but an editor and fashion tastemaker, and not just any editor but the editor at large of Vogue Japan Ms. Anna Dello Russo the “Fashion Maniac”.
The line which is reminiscent of its flamboyant creator consists of lots of shimmering gold pieces with turquoise accents. The line will feature a range of jewelry, sunglasses, shoes bags, and a trolley (Luggage).
Lets hope the collection does swimingly, as it may just dictate a new trend in fashion with tapping people who are truly about fashion and its innovation and not celebrity’s looking for one more product to push while having little if any creative input.
You can pick the line up at 140 H&M stores starting October 4th at the height of the fashion weeks mayhem.

Cavalli who is know for his very print happy and glamorous designs had some very interesting comments throughout the video interview for d.repubblica.it..
