Tomorrow is M-day; the launch of the Isabel Marant pour H&M collection, five tips for making this a fun shopping experience and a useful addition to your wardrobe.
Keep in mind the Five Piece Wardrobe; only invest in Marant classics with good quality, even if the fabric is better, it’s still H&M. That embroidered jacket, the woolen coat and blazer, the leather pants, the metallic belt or those fringe boots are serious options.
Think beyond fashion boundaries; when you’re petite, check the biggest sizes in the kid’s collection, if you’re tall or plus-size, check the men’s. Even if you’re a regualar fit, those collections are really worth checking out. The guy’s version of the fringe knits for example, look way more stylish since they don’t have that super boxy fit.
Don’t be greedy; by which I mean buying for the sake of buying, or even worse selling. If you’re not really that interested in an item or it just isn’t You, leave it in the (digital) rack and make someone else happy.
Be patient; it’s not likely the basic linen tees or pieces from the men’s collection will be a guaranteed sell out, they might even end up in sale in a few weeks. That happened with Lanvin, Marni and Margiela, so chances are high it will happen again.
Shop online; to avoid the mass hysteria in store, log in just before 10 am and keep refreshing the button, it never failed me.

If you fake it, fake it good, LA designer Brian Lichtenberg started the parody trend by changing the Hermès logo to a Homies South Central version, replacing the horse carriage by a truck. Fashionistas and retailers worldwide adopted the sweater and now there are various male and female versions available in both online and offline boutiques. All credits to Brian, but in this case, why pay $330 for the original copy when a copy-of-the-copy screams budget buy?
