It was announced today that Vogue Japan fashion director and style goddess Anna Dello Russo has collaborated with Swedish high street maverick H&M to create an accessories line. In true Dello Russo style, the line consists of very elaborate pieces in reflection to her “too much is never enough” approach to styling. A preview of the pieces themselves was released today in a photograph tweeted by H&M, which consists of shoes, bangles, necklaces, earrings, clutch bags and sunglasses (Although the photograph doesn’t show much of the collection, it certainly gives a really good feel and a definite sense of Dello Russo’s own personal style).
As a personal view on Anna Dello Russo as a style icon, I can definitely appreciate her place in the fashion world and I admire her carefree attitude towards piling on accessories. However I find her to be, at times, too “trendy” and slightly less of a style “icon” and more of a style “follower”. However like I said I can appreciate her style and status in the fashion industry, I personally think she wears some amazing pieces, pulling them off fearlessly.
Anyway, back to the H&M range. As for H&M’s previous collaborations with designers such as Matthew Williamson, Versace, Jimmy Choo and Marni, I personally think they collaborated well providing the consumer with very style-matched ranges within a very high street price range. I have no doubt that the AdR range will provide the same.
The AdR (Anna Dello Russo) range will be available exclusively at H&M online and a select 140 stores from October 4th, just as Paris Fashion Week closes.
