Isabel Marant pour H&M - November 14!

If you're like me, a fan of retailer collaborations - I'm sure you have it already marked down on your calendar. The wait is almost over, the launch of the Isabel Marant pour H&M is just two days away! The collection will be available in selected stores on Novemeber 14, 2013.

Isabel Marant is a Parisian designer who has created a widely influential and successful take on Paris chic. Mixing urban attitude, boho elegance and rock 'n' roll spirit, she delivers a genuine French allure.
The collection features clothing and accessories for not only women, but teens and for the very first time, a collection for men! (Nice!)


Marant has assembled an eclectic wardrobe of must-have urban staples with trademark Parisian flair. Concrete-jungle tones of black, charcoal and gray brightened by touches of white and red mingle in the colour palette.

As mentioned before, very excited about Marant's doing her first men's collection! It includes precisely tailored outerwear and chunky knits, leather biker pants matched with tie-dye t-shirts and western-style jeans and shirts.

I attended the media preview of the collection last week.  Seeing the collection up close was a treat. I really like the colour palette: mainly black and white with a touch of red. The quality and details in the pieces was very nice. There were some very similar looking pieces/style throughout the women, men & teens collection.  It's a matter of sizing - I won't be surprise if the ladies will shop the men or teen's collection.

Is it just me, but I find the price point a little high compared to past H&M collaborations?! Anyways, I won't think it will be a problem. The collection will sell like hot cakes. Are you guys ready? Check out the whole collection here. Below are some of my favourite pieces. Hope I 'll be able to score some of them : ) Good luck and happy shopping!

Hayden Christensen for RW&Co. Collection is now available!

The wait is over, Canadian's own Hyden Christensen collection with RW&Co. arrives in most stores November 7! For more info as to which stores will carry it, please go check out their website here.

Me with Mr. Christensen!!

Media launch event at the Eaton Centre location.

Inspired by the Canadian winters, each of the 20 pieces in the collection blends comfort, style and versatility to fit your lifestyle. I really like this collection: nice pieces, well made, great quality, and attention to details.

Coats, jackets, blazers, cardigans and even scarves.

I attended the media launch event for this exclusive limited edition collection last week, and included some photos here. I took some detail pics of some of my favourite pieces from the collection to share with you. And yes, I had a chance to meet Hyden! He was very nice and of course looking great wearing pieces from his collection! I also loved his boots, which I later found out are from Hi-Tec. ( I want them! : )

One of a fav piece - the carrot fit twill pants. Love the colour
and the detailing in the cuffs.

My other fav piece - Reversible vintage sweater! What a neat idea!

Will you be shopping the collection? Make sure to stop by a RW&Co. near you or shop online before your favourite piece is sold out. What's on your must have list?

Love his outfit and those boots!
Proud designer : )
