H&M Is Gearing Up For H&M X Moschino CollectionOctober 12, 2018
H&M is known to launch some amazing collaborations with high-end fashion houses, bringing the looks and designs of some of the most sought-after labels into the hands of the mass market. Balmain, Alexander Wang. This year? Moschino.
H&M worked with creative director Jeremy Scott on this year’s collaboration. W has a look at the collection, for both men and women, and over the weekend, Harper’s Bazaar talked about the collab’s first advertising campaign, where one ad features Gigi Hadid in a leader mini dress. Unfortunately, we still have a few more weeks until the looks go on sale – but mark your calendar for Nov. 8.
