H&M has teamed up to collaborate with Vogue Japan's fashion director, Anna Dello Russo to create some widely flashy accessories. The fashion icon, who is widely known for her piled on accessories and unrestrained glamour has designed a collection of bags, shoes, jewellery, sunglasses and more in gold, turquoise and animal motifs for the Swedish retail giant. H&M's creative adviser, Margareta van den Bosch believes this is truly a match made in heaven:


“Anna has a fantastic eye and a strong taste, apart from being a veritable fashion icon. The collection is a celebration of excess, fantasy and decoration.”

As one can imagine no one is more excited for the opulent collection which hits stores worldwide October 4th than Russo herself:

“I am excited by this collaboration: this is the first time H&M involves a Fashion Director in a special project. This is the sign of an important evolution in fashion, and I am both thrilled and humbled to be the one chosen to lead it. I wanted to create precious accessories that are impossible to find.  As a stylist I know accessorization is essential: it is the personal touch to any outfit. With these pieces everybody can have fun, turning an ordinary day into a fantastic fashion day”, 

The collection does not hit stores for a few months but you can satisfy your craving by watching Anna Dello Russo show you her closet and a preview of the collection in the video below.

I wear contacts all of the time and have debated getting Lasik for about a year now. With that said I tried on this great pair of 2 tone Hugo Boss frames today and fell in love. Then I saw these great Armani black matte ones and died inside. So here I am 3 hours and 5 stores later debating buying both. I bought the DKNY ones that I wear before bed and on my lazy days years ago and just never wanted to put the time or money into a new pair because I lost my lust for them. I am giving myself the day tomorrow to choose if I want them both or just one pair or if I just want to wait off and see if anything else comes out.

Props to stylist Sissy Vian for picking out some stunning statement pieces of jewelry and for featuring those fantastic Mercura sunglasses alongside designs by the likes of Roberto Cavalli, Dolce & Gabbana and Giambiasta Valli. Julia manages to make crimped hair and high contract look cool once again and not a thing of my tragic grade 9 Myspace photos.
