“Timeless dressing and an enduring sense of sophistication defines the H&M Studio Holiday capsule. We wanted to play around with corsetry, but also revitalise favourite styles like the bias-cut slip dress and the sculptural blazer, all in enduring fabrics that age beautifully and will delight and excite for years to come,” said Ann-Sofie Johansson, head of design womenswear and creative advisor at H&M.
H&M Studio unveils its Holiday capsule collection, drawing inspiration from antique undergarments and Brutalist architecture.
The range features megawatt dresses paired with sophisticated suiting, showcasing graceful silhouettes in silk and lace with a soft colour palette for day-to-night elegance.
The collection will be available from December 7.
Key pieces to captivate include the voluminous tulle ballgown in dramatic red, the blush-pink lace panelled evening dress, and the sparkling mesh mini dress with its peek-a-boo neckline. Lingerie details update the tailoring template, with mesh-trimmed black trousers co-ordinating with the cropped corset top and slouchy, room-for-two blazer. Then there’s the timelessly appealing pairing of a slinky silver slip dress and an ankle-skimming black overcoat. Accessories add edge, with geometric jewellery and minimal strappy sandals.
“Poetic and sensual, this characterful collection balances feminine dresses in lace, tulle and silk with more masculine oversized tailoring, for a modern eveningwear formula,” said Deutsch, collection designer at H&M Studio.
Tempting textures meet long-lasting, premium-quality fabrics with the majority made from more sustainably sourced materials. Highlights include organic silk, recycled wool, Lenzing EcoVero viscose, and sequins made from recycled polyester. Three of the four jewellery pieces are made from recycled aluminium.
