First Look: Isabel Marant for H&M
We're eagerly awaiting the launch of Isabel Marant for H&M this November, with news about the collaboration coming out at an excruciatingly slow pace. Marant spoke a bit about the collection in June, watch it here, but so far there had been only a glimpse of the fashion. Until now! The October issue of Harper's Bazaar features four pieces from the collection.
On display are a pair of dangly hammered-metal earrings, a gray coat, a quilted, heavily embellished jacket and a pair of very rock and roll nail-head pumps. Swoon. We love it all.
"It was clear from the beginning that we didn't want to just do a cheap version of Isabel Marant, so we worked around keeping a really high level of quality in the fabrics and the manufacturing, doing things by hand," she said.
We've seen so precious little of the collection, which will include clothing and accessories for men, women and teens. Marant has hinted at tees, sweats and tribal-chic jackets like those seen in her Spring 2010 collection, embroidered dresses reminiscent of Fall 2012 and "shaggy sweaters" crafted out of loops of wool yarn that will be sold in both oversized and cropped silhouettes.
It will all roll out November 14 to 250 H&M stores nationwide.
