Hitting Stores Soon: Eddy Anemian For H&M

Hitting Stores Soon: Eddy Anemian For H&M

H&M have a long list of designer collaborations, next month will be a certain Alexander Wang, which you will see everywhere, but for me all attention should be on the incredible Design Award winner Eddy Anemian who has created a gorgeous, elegant 10-piece capsule collection.

Inspired by Tilda Swinton’s character in ‘I Am Love’ and the work of French painter Ingres, the gorgeous line features a craftsmanship that you just don’t expect from someone who is still a fashion student at the visual art school La Cambre in Brussels and a high street name, the meticulous construction and texture of the pieces is going to surprise a lot of people, especially when the prices range from £19.99 to £215.

Shopping: Fashion Week Inspiration at H&M


It is three weeks to London Fashion Week, I say it every season but wow it really did come around quickly this time, and it means I have started my panic/preparation for my outfits. I always find it more pressure during fashion week, everyone seems to go a little crazier, a more exaggerated version of themselves, whereas I generally like to stick to black, black and a bit more black, unless of course I am in jeans!!!

So thank god for H&M’s new Fashion Weeks collection that is a monochromatic minimalism masterclass, while still offering that quirky fashion week edge. I basically want the whole collection, but I think these pieces have to be favourite, starting with this gorgeous simple black crepe cami dress – I love the clean lines, the fact it actually falls at the knee and the sporty mesh panel to the front, but most of I adore the price of £12.99. Also it works perfectly with the wide coat, another bargain at £39.99, just pair with classic black heels and this is one stylish and comfortable look.

The other look that is high on my shopping list has to be the oversized white blouse, £24.99, nipped in at the waist with that large wide belt, £24.99, teamed with very cool black jersey leggings, which for £14.99 they are a great price but I think I would need more model-like pins to pull them off, but I think the blouse and belt would work just as well with jeans.

Then we have the chunky knit, the long line blazer, the fake fur jacket, and the statement tee – basically this collection has everything you need to put together a great fashion week capsule wardrobe.

Whether you are planning for fashion week or not – would you wear this monochrome collection?

Red Carpet: Bella Thorne’s Homage To Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles


I am an Eighties baby, so I am pretty excited about the return of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the trailer looks amazing and I am so please to see Megan Fox back. The LA premiere took place over the weekend and I was going to share Megan’s sexy white Marc Jacobs mini, but then I saw Disney starlet Bella Thorne rocking a vintage 80s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles tee and I actually squealed it is so cool.

Bella who wasn’t even born in the 80s **totally makes me feel old** glammed up her look with a sexy H&M black leather mini skirt, caged black Gucci heels and a coordinated patent black and green Edie Parker clutch.

I love that this look is so teen appropriate, especially with the fact that she customised the vintage tee with gold studs on the sleeves and slashed the neckline to wear across her shoulders, it totally takes me back to my 16-year-old days where I customise everything. I also adore the green colour of the T-shirt against her strawberry blonde locks. 

I know some might say this look is too casual for a red carpet, I would agree if the film wasn’t TMNT, it is fun not a heavy drama, and I love that she got into the spirit by showing off the original Turtles cartoon characters. 

I think if Bella can keep bringing her personality to the red carpet she is certainly going to be a star to watch. I bet a lot of people **hint, hint – me** are searching eBay and etsy right now to find their own TMNT tee to customise!!!

What do you think of Bella’s homage to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles?

Wedding Inspiration: H&M Conscious Exclusive Collection

Wedding Inspiration: H&M Conscious Exclusive Collection

This week I have been pre-occupied with my own wedding dress shopping, hitting the boutiques, twirling in David’s Bridal, and talking to designers on a few custom options – but one place I hadn’t considered was the high street. This isn’t because I don’t think there is anything I would like, I am sure for my untraditional wedding there probably is, but I think like most brides-to-be I just dismissed it without even considering – well the lookbook for H&M’s new Conscious Exclusive collection, in collaboration with the sustainable fashion and design think-tank EVER Manifesto, will have a lot of people thinking otherwise.
