H&M’s New Year Celebration – Global retailer H&M is celebrating the Chinese New Year with a new campaign starring top models Sui He and Tian Yi. The campaign will exclusively run in the Asian markets of Hong Kong, China, Malaysia and Singapore starting on January 9th. 2014 is the year of the horse and H&M will be celebrating that with special t-shirts and accessories in Asia.
Conscious Fashion – Following up the news that Amber Valletta would front its spring 2014 Conscious campaign, H&M has revealed it will not be releasing just one but TWO eco-friendly collections. Valletta will star in the Conscious and Conscious Exclusive advertisements, with the Exclusive line also featuring Elizabeth Von Guttmann and Alexia Niedzielski of design think tank Ever Manifesto. “I’m very excited to work with the H&M Conscious campaign, because we share the same values about sustainability,” says Valletta.
Spring Preview – Romanian model Andreea Diaconu wears the spring 2014 collection from H&M in this lookbook video. While we may not have seen the complete collection yet, we did see a preview during Fashion Week and the collection is very bohemian chic. In the film, Andreea wears fringe, flowing blouses and super cute maxi dresses.
Introducing H&M Sport – Coming to an H&M near you in January 2014, the Swedish retailer is offering a full-on activewear range of items for women, men and children called H&M Sport. The line was designed with the expertise of the Swedish Olympic team. The women’s line features performance wear including running separates, yoga wear, water repellent pants as well as sports bras in various colors.
Take a look at previews of the line from WWD.com. “The new H&M Sport is so exciting, especially because of the expert input from the Swedish Olympic team. Sports and fitness are becoming an increasingly important part of our lives, and the new H&M Sport is there to help everyone look and feel great,” says Ann-Sofie Johansson, Creative Head of Design at H&M.
