H&M Studio AW15

The H&M Studio AW15 range will hit stores and online next month. September sees the latest H&M Studio pieces arrive in stores, and we love them.

Heavily inspired by this season’s biggest trend, namely the 1970s, the H&M Studio AW15 launch sees lots of leather, bold patterns, slinky lurex fabrics, 1970s structures and shapes, and luxe outerwear, including some fantastic footwear.

Using a simple colour palette, again heavily maroon and green-based, the collection has a brilliant mix and match-ability. Team a sleek leather pencil skirt with a heavily embellished chevron stripe sweater, for example.

The H&M Studio AW15 range campaign images model has superb 1970s pageboy-cum-mullet hair – do you dare to take this trend that far? Of course there are flares, teamed with simple vests for that 1970s androgynous look.

Fake furs in bold colours, teamed with glittery threaded simple lurex fabrics remind us of 1970s hotspot, Studio 54.

It launches in September, in select stores, and online, but be quick as it is usually pretty fast to fly off the real or virtual shelves.

H&M Studio SS15 Collection

It’s time for the new H&M Studio SS15 Collection – but be quick, it’s selling out fast! Many pieces are already sold out online.

This lovely collection, launched twice yearly, offers specially designed pieces, with a quirky edge. This year, when we had a first look at it, we wondered if the designers had been at an Edinburgh derby – check out the Hibernian green and Heart of Midlothian maroon throughout the collection!

It has a definite 1970s vibe about it – that decade is HUGE this spring/summer. The H&M Studio SS15 collection is not huge, but made up of key pieces, that perfectly mix and match to create simple, or eclectic looks.

“I love how H&M Studio SS15 is both glamorous and effortless,” says Ann-Sofie Johansson, Head of Design, New Development. “It’s about fun in the sun, and then partying in to the night.”

Some of our favourite pieces are the sunglasses, statement jewels and lovely mules which reek of retro glamour. And how utterly fabulous is the swimsuit? It’s so different, we dare you!

The pyjama style pieces are comfortable, slouchy and sophisticated, all at the same time. There are 70s style pale flared jeans, with a subtle tie dye pattern in there too – another nod to the 1970s.
