As we all wait for the release of H&M for Lanvin (now happening Nov. 20, not Nov. 23 as first reported), H&M has undercut itself with a low-priced holiday collection available in stores now. There are great party dress, tuxedo jackets and event a jacket with old fashioned tails for women. “Tailcoats can be worn with a long skirt and a lingerie-inspired top,” says Ann-Sofie Johansson, H&M’s Head of Design. “Or over a feminine dress, or even with jeans and a T-shirt glammed up with bright red high heels.” Ann-Sofie says the details are key. “Hair accessories add a special twist this winter. I love the sequin and feather accessories, and there’s also a lot of beautiful jewelry”. For men, it’s all about the tuxedo. “Wear it the classic way with matching pants, a crisp white bib shirt, bow tie and patent leather shoes; be daring and combine a color and pattern mix with a checked shirt and tartan bow-tie, or wear it with jeans, a printed T-shirt and high-tops.”

I'm loving the pictures of this collection and I'll be looking for it in stores. The Tuxedo jackets are just $50.00 US and there are great dresses for little girls for under $10.00 US. Stay tuned for an in-store evaluation, as I will be shopping this line!
