H&M released a first preview for their Fall 2010 collection recently and while flicking through the images I instantly had two déjà-vu moments. What caught my eye first was a beautiful apricot-colored cape coat closely followed by a huge cozy-looking, wool-trimmed grey winter coat.
After having 2 years of Real vs. Steal expertise under my belt, I’ve become quite the pro at recognizing designer-inspired stuff. Of course it wasn’t too hard to see the inspiration behind H&M’s latest collection as Christopher Bailey garnered quite a big media following after presenting his phenomenal Burberry Prorsum Fall 2010 collection. And Hannah MacGibbon’s Fall 2009 collection was considered to be Chloé’s big comeback to the high fashion world, so it is just as iconical.
I’m amazed at how quick H&M managed to pick up on the Burberry shearling-trim trend and I hope they’ll have a steal alternative for the uber-gorgeous aviator jackets as well. Also quite tempted by the Chloé look-a-like though I’m not sure how such a BIG blanket coat would look on me. Anyway, this collection preview has definitely put H&M back on my radar; I’m stoked to try all these fab pieces. What do you think about the H&M collection?
More looks from the collection after the jump… My other favorites are look #3, #6 and #8.
