Virtual shopping: CDG for H&M

In about a month Rei Kawakubo's designs hit the H&Ms of the world. I have to say that the collection is quite different from the past designer collaborations and we can only wait and see what the crowds reactions will be. Somehow I think that there won't be as huge mass hysteria as last year, due to the fact that Rei's collection is so different and dark. Well, different and dark suit me very well.

For the fans of polkadots the collection seems to be a very pleasant suprise. I am not so keen on the dots, in fact, I would like to get my hands on these following pieces (full looks at

Which ones are your favourites?

Wow, haven't seen those before :P I like all the jackets and the skirt, the cuts are interesting. The thing that has been putting me down about Rei's collection since I first saw the promo-pics was the styling of the models - everything looked just so boxy and wannabe-different, nothing caught my eye and I was more amused than impressed. I'm still not completly convinced, though those pieces you posted are really what I could imagine wearing, so I guess I'll serisouly check it out atleast. :)

I really feel the whole collection is rather overrated and -hyped. It seems as if people are more excited about the fact that such an incredible designer as Kawakubo is collaborating with H&M rather than focusing on the clothes themself. And the clothes are, or atleast should be the main thing, right?

Idhren: I feel the same. I think the models are too plastic looking, it's hard to get a clear picture how the clothes would look in real surroundings.

L: Ah that sucks, of course all the best items only go to Helsinki...

Anonymous: I partially agree with you. I was kind of expecting more and for example feel like the whole polkadot thingy was so over already. And yes, Rei is part of the hype even though the execution is not as CDG as it could be. But the garments I posted here are the ones that interest me the most, I really have to see them in real life to get a better picture. I think the jackets are the best part of the whole shabang.
