I’m back in 42-degree-centigrade-Dubai and loving it. One of the first few events in this season’s line-up is the H&M Studio AW 2014 launch and a fantastic start I’d say, what with some stand- out pieces and gorgeous silhouettes seen in the collection.
For those looking to transition into autumn with layers, this is the perfect place to start, with lots of light fabrics and heavier textures on offer. I loved the use of bold colors this season, chunky accessories and light knits – perfect for this part of the world.
The slip dress returns as a wardrobe staple this season– simple, elegant and chic! I also loved the off-shoulder pieces…a very sexy, yet under-appreciated part of the female anatomy, I think. Leather is back ofcourse, with fitted aviator jackets with metallic detailing, as is velvet for tops, dresses and trimmings.
Navy blue is clearly the color du jour, accompanied by beige, khaki and shades of grey –a lovely palette for autumn winter. My favorite piece from the collection is this uber glamorous metallic slip dress – I simply couldn’t take my eyes off it. Seductive in every sense of the word!
The collection will be available worldwide at H&M stores on September 4, 2014.
