Anna Dello Russo for H&M

photos from H&M

If you're thinking that this post will be about how much I love the Anna Dello Russo for H&M capsule collection after seeing its beautiful pieces in a press event, well you got it all wrong. First of all, I wasn't invited to any (the invitation surely got lost in the mail) but more importantly I'm far from loving this collection.

I don't question the icon status of Miss Dello Russo or her unique sense of style, but trying to reinterpret her amazing wardrobe and luxurious accessories with cheap H&M quality pieces will turn out exactly that, a collection of cheap-looking pieces. Undeniably, some of the pieces don't look so bad on the pictures but I can only imagine how cheap they will actually look in real life. Here is a commercial video featuring Anna Dello Russo herself, no comment.



Check out the entire collection here and look for it in stores on October, 4th.

And now, time for the truth, what is your honest opinion ?

Thank you a million for every time speaking up your mind in the blog, it's always refreshing to have your views. Plus, a big thanks for reading me and for being more and more doing so everyday, it means everything xx

Have a great weekend !!

  1. I think it sums up just about everything I don't like. It's a bit "tacky" and I'm not sure how it translates on normal people. It's a bit bling bling. I will not be queuing up on the day and for that I will be thankful.

  2. Pas pour moi ce genre de bijoux pacotille et trop voyants. En outre, je n'aime pas spécialement ADR ni ses looks, donc encore moins fan...

  3. Mon avis est assez partagé. Tant je pourrai te dire que je n'aime pas du tout cas je trouve cela trop bling bling et tant je trouve ça tellement "elle" et cette capsule pour H&M est vraiment pointue.

    De plus, je pense que si tu t'habilles avec un style raffiné, assez simple, tu peux te permettre une petite folie car cela va rendre vraiment bien.

    Regarde l'une des vidéos de Garance Doré, le collier qui se termine en serpent rend terriblement bien !

    Qu'en penses-tu ?

    Bon week-end, bises.

    1. Garance Doré, avec son style, j ai vraiment du mal à imaginer qu elle puisse aimer une collection de bijoux en toc. Vu que je me suis habitué a la voir avec ses bijoux fétiches tels que ceux d' Aurélie Biederman et autres pièces magnifiques je doute de l authenticité de son avis. Même si le collier que tu mentionnes termines bien le look en vrai il doit etre horrible ! Pour moi c est non non non ! xx

  4. I always love reading your blog for your frank and honest view on things. It's refreshing!

    I'm not a fan at all of the collection. When I first looked at the bag (suitcase), boots etc, it reminded me of plastic accessories you would be giving your Barbie doll as a little girl. Very cheap and tacky or likely to break after one wear.

    I really admire the collaborations that stay true to their brand's pricing point (even in the cheaper market), but that delivers quality.

    Anna Dello Russo is undoubtably an icon I agree, but I'm not sure how translatable her style is to most women's daily lives.

    1. I agree, she's a style icon but we should have left it at that. This collaboration just makes her look tacky too (Oops, sorry Anna, I said it). xx

    1. I agree, but this collection is not capturing her eccentricty (unfortunately). xx

  6. moi j'avoue que c'est un peu too much pour moi, quoique, en décalé why not mais ça dépend des finitions... des bises

  7. I saw Garance Dore's interview with Anna dello Russo on her Pardon my French series. I can't say I'm impressed. I was very disappointed with the tacky and cheap looking Jimmy Choo collection for H&M. However, Sonia Rykiel's collection was fantastic.

  8. I think it's a bit too much and I totally agree that they would look quite cheap, but it would be good to see them live anyway! xx

  9. over-the-top is not quite my style so i'm not really excited at all about this collection.. ADR is someone who wears a 70s ballgown during the day and totally pulls it off, everyone else (well, us regular people) not so much..
