H&M seems to be quite on top of trend this season (but with the rate at which they put out new merchandise - who's really surprised) and is bringing in everyone's new favourites: PASTELS. You can also catch other key trends in store that aren't as popular yet but are destined to be on everyone's must have list by May: peplum trims and eyelet fabric. Marc Jacob's Louis Vuitton S/S 2012 is a clear influence on the collection but H&M seems to have outdone Jacobs, making a much more wearable collection. While I am usually a fan of the designer, I was unimpressed with this collection. The eyelet detailing, the bright pastel fabrics and the dip dyed feathers are marvelous ideas but the cuts were so unflattering, even on the beautiful lanky models, now let-alone an average woman. They were boxy and awkward and just looked much too big for the models but the idea was there - the unique fabrics and colours are still wearable and now thanks to H&M, affordable too.
In keeping with this American Dream / pastel theme, here is my song for the day. Kimbra's (now best known for her collaboration with Gotye) "Settle Down" is beautiful and creepy but still an incredibly catchy tune you won't be able to help but hum along to.
