1. Star power
Nineties supermodels Christina Kruse and Amber Valletta, as well as Yves Saint Laurent muse from the '70s, Pat Cleveland, returned to the runway for the H&M show.
2. The new power suit
Pantsuit. Check. Pinstriped. Check. Oversized coat with an hourglass silhouette. Check. But what really makes us want to be dressed in all of the above is the white office shirt with exaggerated sleeves, especially when paired with high-waisted cum wide-leg trousers that pool at the feet.
"There is a new femininity in this H&M Studio collection. It's about female strength and power, with a fresh look at folklore and romance. It's very elevated, and also very real," —Ann- Sofie Johansson, H&M's creative advisor
We're officially ditching the wool fedoras for H&M's Gaucho hats. We'll take one of each please.
4. Bohemian deluxe
Rich embroideries, sheer paisley-printed silk, and long silk scarves worn as headpieces were influenced by Swedish folklore — including the Swedish lynx printed on sheer dresses.
5. Decadent details
How do you elevate velvet to new opulent levels? Just add beaded embellishments and fringing that look like silver chains.
