h&m autumn winter 2011 preview

H&M invited me to preview their A/W 2011 collection last week.  A chance to see what’s coming and share with you – brilliant.
The above shoes are my # 1 fave item (no surprises really since I have these).  Took everything to not do a sneak try on. 
Read on for more pictures

I LOVE this patch elbow knit dress. Add wool tights and old boots/skimmers/creepers or black brogues.  (I’d wear the neon satchel messenger style with this but the classic brown would really look timeless with this colour grey)
Sheer black front/white back sleeveless shirt.  This would work with black leather or denim skinnies or layered over a sheer maxi dress (with the shirt skinny belted)
The structured pony hair bag with gold hardware. I tried it on over this dress I was wearing at the show room
Tweeds and floral mixes in brown, camel, purples and plum. Wools paired with chic blouses and dresses plus wide leg trousers  – the 1940s are back

A Pucci – esq print skort.  These could be worn with a sheer purple/blue or cream button down shirt tucked in or a slouchy ribbed knit
Their fringe tote will return in suede (sold out in black faux leather) and cuffs with gold hardware
So Harry Potter. The new geek glasses are a-round (excuse the pun) for Autumn 
Gorgeous pearl peter pan collar to update your clothes.  Layer this over countless plain above or below the knees dresses. I’d try it over plain tops too
Navajo print poncho and mushroom suede vest dress (add a black or beige skinny polo neck with skinny sleeves and your done. Plus skimmers—> flats)
A wardrobe classic for transitioning (I’ve had my own pair for years. Works with all dress lengths, shorts and skinnies)
Thank you H&M.

I’m sure some of the above will make appearances on my tweet pics taken from your shop as it’s released ; -)

    Love it. Can’t wait to get my hands on those shoes…

  7. Lisa Ann says:

    I thought maybe the whole creeper trend was one that I go let pass without trying… But I fall more and more in love with every pair I see.

    Love you blog.

    was the first bag really made of pony hair?
    can’t imagine h&m could square this with their conscience…

    oohhhhh.. do you know when these will be in stores? i live all the way in South Africa so unless I wanna pay double the price tag on shipping, i have to bribe friends and family who are visiting the US to buy them for me!

  13. Alexandria J. says:

    Al- I won’t be surprised if I post pics on twitter in the H&M changing rooms one day trying on at least one thing here!

    Nicky – actually no although I believe this stock typically starts appearing in August onward.

    Camilla – I LOVE THOSE shorts.

    mari dolar = I don’t think so actually. SHould have written faux

  21. Michele says:

    Aah those creepers. I need them NOW!! I saw them on a Swedish blogger (I think it was Columbine Smile) but that’s weird since they’re not for sale yet…
    All the other items look really good as well. Lucky you! xx
