May 3, 2012 by J.T.
What do you get when you cross one of the most over the top fashion editors with an even more over the top apparel group ? If you guessed Anna Wintour’s hairbob collection for GAP you’d be sadly wrong but if guessed Anna Dello Russo’s accessories collection for H&M you’d be right on the money. After Lanvin, Versace, and Marni, one of the most vivacious fashion directors known to the publishing world, Anna Dello Russo, will be collaborating with H&M on an accessories collection that promises to be as eccentric as her taste in fashion week wardrobe. The exciting collection is scheduled to come out on October 4th 2012 and will feature jewelry, bags, sunglasses, shoes and even a trolley, at H&M prices.
“I am excited by this collaboration: this is the first time H&M involves a Fashion Director in a special project. This is the sign of an important evolution in fashion, and I am both thrilled and humbled to be the one chosen to lead it. I wanted to create precious accessories that are impossible to find. As a stylist I know accessorization is essential: it is the personal touch to any outfit. With these pieces everybody can have fun, turning an ordinary day into a fantastic fashion day”, says Anna Dello Russo.
“It’s been extremely exciting to involve Anna Dello Russo in this project, something completely different from what we have done before. Anna has a fantastic eye and a strong taste, apart from being a veritable fashion icon. She produced an extravagant range of accessories that will get H&M customers and everyone in love with fashion excited. The collection is a celebration of excess, fantasy and decoration” says Margareta van den Bosch, Creative Advisor at H&M.
Famously described by photographer Helmut Newton as a “fashion maniac”, Anna Dello Russo is one of contemporary fashion’s driving forces. An unparalleled eye, she has shaped the way we see fashion today through her groundbreaking work at Vogue Italia, where she served as a Fashion Editor for over twelve years working with photographers such as Helmut Newton, Michel Comte, Walter Chin, and later as the Editor in Chief of L’Uomo Vogue. Currently holding the role of Fashion Director at Large and creative consultant at Vogue Japan.
