The Best of Isabel Marant for H&M
The much-anticipated Isabel Marant for H&M collection has finally arrived in stores! As of Nov. 14, the items are available for purchase in stores and online. There hasn’t been this much talk about a designer collaboration launch since Philip Lim for Target back in September. And I’m happy to report that Marant’s H&M pieces are just as fabulous as you’d imagine. The French designer’s collection is glitzy, colorful, winter-friendly and true to her bohemian aesthetic. These are a few of my favorite items.
These ankle-length sequined pants (left) are my New Years Eve party pants. Ok, at $199, they’re a little pricier than what you’d usually find at H&M, but just look at how dazzling they are! They are sure to stand out in a sea of cocktail dresses at those festive holiday functions. With an elasticized waistband and cotton stretch jersey fabric, they are also remarkably comfortable. I’ll probably wear mine with a simple black top and heels to ring in 2014.
As far as white jeans (right) go, these are surprisingly figure flattering. And the black side stitching is the perfect touch for a winter white piece. And they’re only $99. Yes, please!
Seen here on Sienna Miller, this $149 wool-blend cardigan is one of the highlights of the collection. It’s made for snuggling by the fireplace or braving the cold in style.
I love these suede and leather Western-style fringe boots because you can dress them up or down, and they’re comfortable enough to walk around in. They’re definitely a fall wardrobe staple. I’ll wear mine with flirty floral dresses and with jeans (maybe with those white jeans I’m coveting). Priced at $299.
This ruffled silk chiffon skirt is one of the less-expensive items at $69.95. It’s one of several beautiful silk patterned dresses, blouses and skirts in the collection.
