After the hugely successful collaboration with Balmain
have announced KENZO
as the designer for the 2016 collection.
The collaboration with the Parisian fashion house is due to be released 3rd November 2016 to 250 H&M stores after an exclusive show at a yet-to-be-revealed location in October.
H&M‘s Head of Design, Ann-Sofie Johansson, states in an exclusive interview to Vogue, “Balmain was glamorous and sexy, and this is vibrant, youthful and fun.”
Personally, I am very excited to see what this collaboration brings and whether it matches the success (and maybe even causes riots), as the Balmain collection last year. H&M never fails to impress by continuing to bring a diverse range of high-fashion aesthetic to the high street.

It’s been a busy couple of days hence the lack of posts.
I just wanted to share a quick outfit post. I’ve been so inspired by the AW16 jumper and mini skirt trend that I decided to try it out for myself. Although I’m a season ahead 😉
There are certain things that don’t just capture my eye for a second. There are certain things that ignite a strong desire and stay with me until I get them.
When I saw the runway photos from the Moschino SS15 show, I was in awe of the pink leather skirt. I have remained so ever since. I had to get it one way or another…
Last month was the first time I’d been paid from my new job, so I trailed all my favourite sites like Topshop, Missguided, River Island etc and didn’t find anything that particularly stood out to me. So I visited House of CB and scrolled through the entire website until I went to the skirts section. Then, I fell in love again…
A blush pink leather skirt appeared on my screen and if life was a film, ‘Hallelujah’ would’ve been the background song. I’d lusted for the Moschino skirt for a year and I’d finally found the perfect solution. For £69 how could I resist?
Top – Topshop, Skirt – House of CB, Shoes – Lipsy, Clutch – New Look ✨
The skirt is of beautiful quality; it looks and feels more expensive than it is.
LESSON: Never give up searching! Life has a funny way of giving you exactly what you want.
Hi everyone, how was your day? Mine was okay, very proud of what I’ve achieved today: got through the day with a smile on my face despite being exhausted!
I do love posting an #OOTD post. It may appear that I wear all-black 24/7 but I promise it’s just a coincidence that I wear this colour on the days I decide to post.
Spring weather isn’t particularly blooming in the UK yet, so to stay warmish, I wore a TOPSHOP turtle neck jumper with a H&M leather mini skirt.
TIP: If you want to survive the cold but wear something like this make sure your double up on your layers. I wear a pair of leggings with a pair of black tight over them, this ensures I’m warm minus a gazillion pairs of tights.
College is so so exhausting. The cold weather doesn’t help either. I’ve always struggled with what to wear during winter, but you can pretty much wear anything as long as you wear a huge fluffy coat!
Today, I opted for all black (as usual). Teaming my Alexander Wang x H&M cropped jumper with a black midi skirt. I didn’t wear the coat in the picture because I hate how it dilutes the detail from my top!
What better way to match a dark outfit with dark makeup and a dark mood. As number 1 fan of the smokey, I’d be totally lost without the Urban Decay Naked Palette 2. This look was achieved by using Foxy on the brow bone, Tease and Snakebite on the lid, Busted on the crease and lower lid, Bootycall on the tear duct and YDK on the lower lash line.
After that, I applied the Benefit Push Up Liner to create a wing, followed by a Rimmel London kohl pencil on my water line. Finished off with a pair of my holy grail Eyelure lashes in 107.
It seems like such an effort to make just to go to college, but doing this makes me feel so much better about myself! And even if you have a pretty shitty day like I did, at least you know you looked good through it!
I hope your day was better than mine and let me know what you think today’s glam ✨
