A new collection from H&M has unleashed protests from women’s rights campaigners because it includes the slogan “I love GBV”, the initials of the designer but also a widely used acronym for gender-based violence.
Given H&M’s massive size, it’s no surprise that the Swedish fashion retailer has an endless stream of news and there are two major developments to share today, one on the style front and one about a new country debut.
The South African designer Palesa Mokubung, who launched her own brand Mantsho in 2004, has designed a line of womenswear for H&M featuring fluid tailoring and vibrant prints that will be on sale from August 15.
H&M has joined forces with the Chinese designer Angel Chen for its latest high-end fashion collaboration.The Swedish fashion giant will roll out a 45-piece capsule collection designed by the creative this September.
Known for his ultra-feminine, silhouette-driven gowns, couturier Giambattista Valli shook up Haute Couture fashion week in Paris on Monday with a botanic-inspired collection displayed not on models, but on mannequins.
