Love this pair of oversized jeans, super comfy. My friends thought it was pretty kickass cool, the pantry auntie asked if I was wearing somebody else’s jeans.

MMMmmm…I think my wallet is in trouble again

Maison Martin Margiela x H&M

Maison Martin Margiela x H&M

After months of anticipation, the Maison Martin Margiela x H&M lookbook is finally unveiled! Here’s a peek from the 140-piece collection which launches 15 November at H&M stores world-wide. Inspiration for the collection came from MMM’s iconic pieces, featuring androgynous tailoring, asymmetry, oversize silhouettes and the maison’s trademark humour.

There’s only one problem with the collection – I can’t find anything I don’t like! I think I’m gonna melt my credit card with this one…oh dear. 15 November – quick come. I’m drooling all over the lookbook already. Follow the collaboration hashtag #MargielawithHM to get the latest updates.

4 Oct: The Day I Caught Crocodiles, Snakes and Lots of Gold

Anna Dello Russo for H&M Accessories Collection

My stash of Anna Dello Russo at H&M! I think I burnt a large hole in my pocket, boo hoo!

4 October was the day I caught a crocodile, lots of snakes and gold. Nope, I haven’t turned Indiana Jones, I just went to try my luck at getting some of Anna Dello Russo at H&M jewelry pieces. It was definitely a good day, cos’ I got every single piece I was craving for, plus a few more (naughty hands, I told you to leave those alone!!).

The store at Orchard Building, Singapore opened at 10AM. Customers were let in by the 20s, and given 10 minutes to shop. A useful tip would be to note down the items you want and map out your route while queuing, cos’ once you enter you only have 10 minutes and it will be like a supermarket dash.I always remembered my first H&M collaboration – I wasn’t aware of the 10-minute rule, and got a rude shock when the store announced “Customer, you have one minute left.” Lucky that I am a well-trained shopaholic *wink*

It was good there were mannequins showing which shelves the items I wanted were at.

Mad rush to grab like they were free. The trolley cases went the fastest, followed by the mini clutches and turquoise bangles. Heard the collection did really well in Europe. While the items did move, I didn’t really feel the excitement or hear any squeals from ecstatic shoppers at the Singapore store. Most of the shoppers were Caucasians or Middle Eastern…perhaps the collection was a bit too loud for the typical Singaporean.

Store Display. I am amazed I still managed to find time to take some photos LOL! I think the sales staff were astonished too, cos’ the other shoppers were so busy grabbing stuff! Oh dear, I think I am going blog-crazy LOL.

My 2 bagfuls in a 10-minute spree. Damn. My wallet bleeds.

Yay!

Opening up my stash at home…

This is my favourite piece in the collection. I first saw a similar crocodile choker in a Korean drama and searched high and low for it but to no avail – perhaps cos’ it’s so crazy the manufacturers doubted they could find enough crazy people to buy it. So you can imagine my excitement when I saw this.

Amazing bejeweled 3-coil snake bangle

An intricate snake choker. I must say the pieces are quite well-made for a high street brand.

Gold bling-bling coil bracelet. I have so many wonderful pieces to attend events with chum Darren! He always makes me laugh with his ‘who-on-earth-would-wear-that?!’ expression and humorous comments – yeah, at my expense.

Anna Dello Russo for H&M Accessories Collection

Oooh, this is SO pretty. I will feel like a baroness in a Victorian era wearing this. Absolutely lurve it!

Anna Dello Russo for H&M Accessories Collection

Over-the-top sunnies. I am so loving the crocodile sunnies, although the left one with a chain feels a bit heavy. Let’s see how the wear test goes.

Anna Dello Russo for H&M Accessories Collection

I wasted no time in wearing my croco sunnies to a swell staycation with an amazing swimming pool.

That’s Darren’s response to my sunnies – “You’ve gone looney, girl!” haha :D

Watch this blog as I debut the rest of the pieces on Look of the Day!

4 Oct: Anna Dello Russo For H&M

Anna Dello Russo for H&M

Anna Dello Russo

Anna Dello Russo, Editor At Large and creative consultant for Vogue Japan, has designed a 50-piece accessory collection for H&M which launches 4 Oct world-wide. Once described by Helmut Newton as a “fashion maniac”, the Queen of Bling’s collection is mostly gold and chunk that Queen Cleopatra and Donnatella Versace would approve of. Inspiration for the collection came in the form of Anna’s wardrobe (and her 4,000 pairs of shoes – ok, I definitely lose). Her Tiffany blue with gold filigree detail cupboard was the starting inspiration for the 50-piece collection, most obviously influencing the suitcase design. Other items include sunglasses,crocodile and snake-adorned jewelry, clutch bags emblazoned with her dog Cucciolina, thigh-high leather boots as well as a bird fascinator with a netted veil. Definitely not for the faint-hearted.

Anna has released a pop video to celebrate the release of her accessories range for H&M. Wearing a PVC mini-dress, sheposes on a giant gold shoe as she reveals her collection along with her ‘ten rules of fashion’. It left me a bit dumbfounded, cos’ I don’t really know what to make of it. Have a look and tell me what you think.

Anna’s Ten Rules of Fashion (say it with an Italian accent to get the most oomph)
1. Fashion is a declaration of your own freedom
2. Between style and fashion? Absolutely fashion
3. Fashion is always uncomfortable, if you feel comfortable you never get the look (AGREE)
4. Fabulous at every age
5. Wearing night clothes in the daytime is unexpected
6. Somebody wearing your same outfit? Wonderful, you did the right choice
7. You must wear outfit once (but we don’t have a wardrobe allowance like yours, Miss Russo)
8. Wear coat as a dress
9. It doesn’t matter the size of your body, fashion flatter everyone
10. Fashion jewels personalise your style. Nothing succeeds like excess

Touchingly, Anna remembers to contribute back to society: “Accepting this challenge [to design] has allowed me to give my personal and deeply felt contribution to the rebirth of Japan, a country I am strongly bonded with. Thereafter, part of my fee will be donated to the Japanese branch of the Red Cross International.” Yay, now I don’t feel that bad buying – I am doing my part for Japan too! :p Fingers crossed I can get my hands on some of these gems (crocodile – I have my eyes on you)!
