|Wearing: H&M Printed Poplin Blouse|
If you all have seen the teaser video we have put out on our Instagram feed last week (below for reference), you would already know that the latest 2016 Conscious Exclusive Collection by H&M will be coming to our shores on the 7th of April 2016.
This range is rather different from the ones that we are accustomed to at their stores just because this 2016 Conscious Exclusive Collection merges a sense of history with modernity that exhibits 300 years of Fashion at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs.
H&M 2016 Conscious Exclusive Collection
|Jacquard Long Coat | RM699|
|The Full Look|
Now what is truly unique about this selection is the combination of the museum's archival fashions that was incorporated into the designs where contemporary and artistic forms made key pieces from the last three centuries of haute couture.
In this sense, a lot of the materials, ornate embellishments and layering references were done with innovative sustainable materials which gave every piece a soulful, progressive, conscious and sophisticated elegance.
|Jacquard Gown | RM799|
Now as we can see from above, a lot of the shapes and textures revolved around languid dresses, artsy kaftans and sculpted skirts. The prints here were fluid, where it turned dresses into trompe l'oeil paintings or sculpture; where the simplest dress with a deep neckline featuring a beautiful marble draping print, would create an electric circuit between the present and the past.
|The Embellished Midi Skirt|
|A Closer Look|
A favorite of ours was this Embellished Midi Skirt, made out of Polyester & Recycled Glass. It's elegant cut conveyed a stunning elegance and a nonchalant sophistication; plus not only that but with a mix of conscious, sustainable fabric and a classic painting to go along with it, it still retained the form of being red-carpet ready.
|Embellished Trousers | RM799|
|Jacquard Shopper Bag | RM149|
Silk Flat Shoe | RM299
Same goes for the Embellished Trousers made with 100% tencel, beads & recycled glass. The materials may not sound that impressive in matters but when you do get up close, the intricacy of the designs simply blows you away.
