6 days to go, the countdown is on – the highly-anticipated, sure to sell-out in seconds Erdem x H&M collection launches NEXT THURSDAY, 2nd November, in selected stores and online and the campaign video directed by the insanely talented Baz Luhrmann is already enough to have me weeping with joy at the beauty of this explosion of floral masterpieces and exquisite design. I. Can. Not. Wait! Have a watch and get in the zone, it’s just beautiful:
And can we just take a moment to appreciate the stunning soundtrack, which is by Years & Years – a new and exclusive track called Hypnotised. The whole thing is just beautifully, beautifully done. I. Am. Sold!
Okay, so on to the fashion…I mean pretty much without exception, I want EVERYTHING! But I’ve been trying to draw up a shortlist for myself, based on the things I think would actually suit me / I would wear / that are the right choices for me (given that unlike the models in the Luhrmann short I am not a lithe, long-limbed, 6ft, 20-something model). So, here I think are MY selects – the ones I’m prepared to body-roll into the store and elbow my way to, if the occasion demands:
But, I am going back and forth on this one and the other similar but fuller skirted version. Both so beautiful, but I’m thinking this one I’d probably get more wear out of. Might need to try both though, just to be sure!
Of course there are also some standout pieces from the collection that are sure to be big hits, like the leopard print ribbon neck-tie faux fur coat and the black floral blazer, which have both featured in many a press preview. But with a couple of faux fur coats in the wardrobe already I’m going to resist this one and I’m never really sure the blazer look quite works on me, always feel a bit like I’m headed to the office… so again, going to pass on that one.
Shoe-wise… tempted by both of these, but clearly can’t have it all!
Then, the more I look at it, the more I also WANT this floral black hoodie – who knew I needed that in my wardrobe, but now I’ve seen it I can’t unseen it, in all the right ways!Gah, it’s going to be too hard to make choices! I think the only thing for it is to set the alarm for early-o-clock, get up, order a whole bunch of stuff, then try it all on and decide from there. Hopefully making the choice to send some back or I’ll be bankrupt! In the meantime, enjoy some of this celeb-inspo, while you make up YOUR mind… 2nd November. On your marks, get-set…..
Happy Shopping, xoxo
