Welcome to my glitter obsession!
With designers like Karl Lagerfeld, Comme des Garcons, Roberto Cavali, Lanvin and Versace your local H&M sounds a lot more like a Barney’s than a glorified Forever 21. Their newest designer, Marni, is an excellent addition to this awesome burgeoning couture department store. Here is the full list of lines that have come through H&M at one time or another: Karl Lagerfeld, Stella McCartney, Comme des Garcons, Roberto Cavali, Jimmy Choo, Sonia Rykiel, Lanvin, Versace, now Marni. Oh, will Spring 2012 ever come?
Jimmy Choo was just bought by the luxury conglomerate, Labelux, for a hefty $800 million. The decision was made in leu of going public, I guess TowerBrook Capitol Partners just wanted the big payout. But JC is expected to double it’s £150 million revenue in the first fiscal year after increasing their presence in Asia. Congrats JC, I just want to see some sparkly pumps.
