Women’s Look 2

This is the next designer following in the footsteps of Karl Lagerfeld, Stella McCartney, Versace, Marni and Maison Martin Margiela, French designer Isabel Marant, a French Designer who was made infamous by her wedge sneakers that became one of the hottest sneaker trends of this era (I have a few pairs; I just loved them!). Marant is next in line to grace us her loyal customers and H&M’s customers with her signature Parisian chic designs.

“The Isabel Marant pour H&M collection is an eclectic mix of boho elegance and rock ‘n’ roll insouciance. The spirit is quintessentially Marant: masculine tailoring is featured together with skinny pants, sweatshirts, loose blouses, airy dresses and textured knits” says H&M about the collaboration due to hit stores November 14, 2013.  Not many have the full collection of the H&M/Marant collection, but I DO! View the full lookbook, which includes pieces for men (a first for Marant) as well as teens and make your wish list now because when those doors open on November 14th, I predict there won’t be much left on November 15th  to buy.  This limited edition collection launches in select H&M stores across Canada and the US.

Unfortunately pricing for the collection will be slightly higher than regular H&M threads and accessories; tops start at $50 and outerwear range from $200 to $500. Truth be told… us Isabel Marant loyalists are THRILLED to get an Isabel Marant piece at “close” to an H&M price! We will suffer through the fact that its a little higher than other H&M items, really its ok!

I find her collection a great mix of what that contemporary woman would need. The Isabel Marant pour H&M has everything from basics like easy tees and tanks, teenager swag accessories, outerwear, shoes, cool sneakers and of course, the classic LBD, this collection is saturated with versatility for the whole family. Rather than designing a different style for ‘Women’, ‘Men’, and ‘Kids’, Isabel Marant stuck to the same look/story in knits and tie-dye for the entire collection comprising of sequins, knits, silk, and quality fabric.  Although the collection boasts wearable statement-making streetwear, the outerwear and knitted coats in this collection are nothing short of exquisite.

Another detail of this collection worth mentioning and that sets her apart from collections prior is that Ms. Marant used iconic models to showcase her premiere collection with H&M by the likes of supermodels, Alek Wek, Lou Doillon, Milla Jovovich and Constance Jablonski…Way to make your mark Isabel. Now let’s get shopping!

2013 Mom & Me Blazers H&M
2013 Mom & Me Blazers H&M

It’s always the cutest thing to see a mini version of you in your children. It wasn’t always the case until recent years that you could find little replicas of the trends hot off the runway; especially in menswear/boyswear hence that’s why I birthed BRYCEWEAR many years ago (https://www.facebook.com/bryce.wear). It was only Ralph Lauren who dared to launch a high end kids line for his lifestyle brand. Christain Dior only had baby Dior limited in sizes primarily layettes. Since then I have watched childrenswear style grow to mimic fashionably savvy moms and dads styles. From sneakers/footwear to graphic bold pattern jackets at H&M and chanel-like suits at Oscar De La Renta Kids, Marni and Stella McCartney, Lanvin, the list goes on and on now.  The point is there are stylish trend driven kids clothes for at varying price points almost everywhere and I couldn’t be happier to know that I was one of the first to bring trend driven style of boys clothing options to reality with BryceWear.  I might bring it back within the next year or two if I find the right backer… who knows but for now I am satisfied that kids today have many options of top quality style for every occasion! Here are some of my favorite spots: All Saints, Burberry Kids, Crewcuts (J. Crew Kids), Zara Kids, Next Kids (Europe), Polo Ralph Lauren, Gucci Kids, Gilt.com, H&M Kids
