So you've probably heard all of the exciting news about Isabel Marant's collection for H&M slated for release this fall. The collection is said to boast a "wardrobe of must-have pieces inspired by her signature style" including a menswear line which will be a first for the French designer.
Every time news of an affordable collaboration with a major designer breaks you know shit is bound to get crazy during the months leading up to it's release... Especially considering the fact that nearly every fashion girl and boy has had a case of Marant Mania for the past couple of years.
Two things happen: The "over it" scene of people tweet about how predictable this collection is (we get it, you don't want to see another pair of sneaker wedges, ever) and the rest, who can't knock a Marant-anything, express their borderline worrisome joy over the fact that they'll be able to score a runway influenced piece for a reasonable amount of cash.
I'm one of those people who gets excited, shows up, and tends to leave empty-handed. Usually, I get stuck with the "eh" item from the look-book so I don't know. I guess we'll have to wait and see the images once they hit the web. Trust me, I'm with you and hope the look-book doesn't include a pair of fast-fashion sneaker wedges. Where do you stand? Isabel Marant pour H&M will be available in 250 of H&M's stores as well as the internets on November 14, 2013.
