H&M Page 1
We sure hope so. We know the spritely 38-year-old became famous for footie in the first place, but we wouldn’t mind if his just-announced retirement from the game opened more time in his schedule for hanging around sans shirt. Of course everyone’s calling dibs on David Beckham now that he’ll be stepping off the pitch, so let’s dig in for a little speculation.
H&M, the largest producer of apparel in Bangladesh, has pledged to sign an accord mandating safe working conditions and other provisions for the country’s garment workers, following the horrific collapse of Rana Plaza and the deaths of over 1,100 people. Read on for more on what that means for the estimated 3.6 million garment workers employed in Bangladesh.
Cara Delevingne‘s ubiquity has earned her more than a few Kate Moss comparisons, and now there might be one more parallel to add to the list. The 20-year-old was snapped by paparazzi in London this weekend dropping what The Sun refers to as “a packet of mysterious white powder.” It could have been cocaine, it could have been baking powder (she has taken up cooking recently, after all), and while there’s no way to know for sure, H&M is conducting a thorough investigation into the matter, since the model currently fronts their Divided campaign.
Since temps seem to be on the general up and up, we might as well start looking at teeny bikinis and colorful cover-ups. Lucky for you, we’ve got a peek at H&M’s latest swimsuit collection. You know, the very same one worn by Beyoncé herself.
Now that we’ve seen the print ads and watched the commercial, the natural next step in today’s campaign life cycle is the behind-the-scenes video. H&M has just released a peek into the making of its summer ads starring a bikini-clad Beyoncé gyrating on the beach in the Bahamas, and as you might expect, it was hardly home-movie style production.
The wait is over, guys — we’ve got Beyoncé‘s full H&M campaign video! And spoiler alert: it features a brand spankin’ new song!
We had serious withdrawal symptoms after the London Olympics ended, but we’re already excited for the 2014 and 2016 games in Sochi, Russia and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil respectively. One of the things we look forward to most at the Olympics are the opening and closing outfits worn by the athletes. Now, H&M has announced that it’s designing outfits for Sweden’s Olympic and Paralympic teams at both summer events.
Seriously — Mondays should always start with something Beyoncé-related.
H&M is at the forefront of fast fashion, while Vogue is the pinnacle of high fashion magazines. This morning, the two are sitting down at the mag’s headquarters in Times Square to discuss sustainability, social responsibility, and more. Wanna watch? We’ve got the livestream right here.
Say what you will about rumors, a good number of them turn out to be true. Case in point: Beyoncé‘s H&M ad!
Remember when Helen Hunt rolled up to the red carpet at this year’s Academy Awards in a custom gown made by none other than H&M? Well, you may not have an occasion quite that glamorous on your calendar, but come April 4, you will be able to get a piece of the mass retailer’s sustainable evening wear when its Conscious Exclusive line launches in stores and online. For now, however, we’ve got the full lookbook right here for your browsing pleasure! And, what do you know, we’re actually really impressed.
The Swedish retailer opened 40 Stateside stores in 2012—which begs the question, hasn’t their aggressive push for U.S. markets already started? Not according to Daniel Kulle, U.S. president of H&M, “We have 269 stores in U.S., but with more than 314 million people in the country, we haven’t exposed everyone to H&M yet.” Watch out, Americans. The wear-them-once basics are coming for each and every one of you.
H&M is our go-to for cheap thrills, but today, the fast fashion retailer is pulling out all the stops for its first runway show in eight years. The show is walking in Paris, but we’ve got your front row seat with our livestream right here at 3:45 PM EST.
In a sea of Armani, Dior, and diamonds at the Oscars pre-show, there was one dress that swept onto the red carpet with a label that most of us actually have in our closets.
Here’s a change of pace from all of the 5-figure dresses being shown in Paris this week: H&M, purveyor of $10 sweaters and $20 skinny jeans, will show a collection during the haute-est fashion week of them all.
Do we sound bored? We’re not.
