Metalheads Troll H&M For Making Up Fake Metal Bands

I am old enough to remember a time when it was considered practically sacrilegious to purchase band paraphernalia from a mall store. Like, unless you wanted people to think you were some kind of poseur, you got your shit from an actual concert you attended, a thrift store, a small independent store or as a hand-me-dow…

H&M Is Giving Textile Workers A Raise

H&M may be raising its prices, but for a reason you'll actually love. The company is aiming to create better conditions in the factories in which their clothes are made. H&M announced its Fair Living Wage policy last month, saying that "all textile workers should be able to live on their wage." What a breath of…

10 Looks From H&M’s Consciousness Exclusive Collection

It's really cool that H&M is building upon its Consciousness Collection -- ethically sourced and sustainable clothing -- with its new Consciousness Exclusive. You might have seen Helen Hunt wear one of the collection's dresses at this year's Oscars. And last year, Ginnifer Goodwin wore one of their dresses to the White House Correspondents' Dinner.

H&M Announces Clothing Exchange Program

Starting in February of next year, when you bring in a bag of old clothes to H&M, the company will recycle them for you and you'll be rewarded with a discount voucher to buy some new ones. Pretty cool, right? The clothing exchange discount is part of H&M's new iCollect recycling program, which aims to reduce…

The H&M Family Collection — For You And The Little Jerks In Your Life

So H&M just announced that they've released a new collection called Fashion Family, a series of coordinated outfits for parents and their kids. But the promotional ads for the collection show a couple of sunglasses-bedecked assholes posing with their equally d-baggy looking children (yes, I just called a couple of kids d-bags). However great the…

Watch: First Look At Maison Martin Margiela For H&M

High-street and department store collaborations with luxury fashion houses are commonplace these days, what with stores announcing a new capsule collection every five minutes (or so it seems). But for all of the brands that choose to affordably market their wares to the mainstream, there are a few whose ethos seem quite at odds with…

Watch Lana Del Rey Take On David Lynch In This TV Ad For H&M

There was a moment there when I thought Lana Del Rey would be but a blip on our collective cultural radar given that, um, everyone kind of seemed to hate her, but with big-name brands like Mulberry, Jaguar, and H&M backing the controversial songstress, it seems like Lana will have a role in the zeitgeist…

Where Authenticity In Street Style Dies, Shameless Corporate Promotion Lives

When the term "street style" was first coined, it was the domain of the unstudied, the unstaged, the stylist or editor or blogger wearing an outfit that she had purchased and put together herself. Candid street style at its heart and in its purpose was refreshingly free of the business element that defines much, if…

It’s Here! Anna Dello Russo’s Gorgeously Gilded Accessories Collection For H&M

It was only a matter of time before Vogue Japan editor-at-large and totally OTT fashionista Anna Dello Russo got to put her medal of approval on a line of her own, and it's only natural that she of the outrageous fascinators and tacky-goes-high fashion opulence would cut her design teeth on — what else? —…

Anna Dello Russo Sings And Dances Her Way To H&M Accessories Acclaim

God love her, Anna dello Russo is in a friggin' category of her own. The Vogue editor is known for her, um, eccentric hats and fashion show wear, and we love her, in the way that you love your dotty aunt that sometimes forgets to put on pants. She's designed an accessories collaboration with H&M…

The Latest H&M Collab? Maison Martin Margiela

Boy, are we stoked! H&M just announced that its latest designer collaboration will be with Belgian designer Maison Martin Margiela. Margiela, who along with avant garde designers Ann Demeulemeester and Dries Van Noten made up the Antwerp Six, comes from a more radical place than a lot of H&M's past collaborators. Margiela is definitely more of…

H&M Under Fire For The Use Of A Ridiculously Tan, Blatantly Altered Model

H&M made Tanning Mom so proud with their new swimwear ad, which features model Isabeli Fontana flaunting skin the color of coffee beans. The Swedish fast-fashion retailer was forced to apologize Thursday after the campaign in question left doctors, critics, and cancer groups roaring with outrage. The photos are clearly altered — though Fontana, who…

Anna Dello Russo Does Accessories For H&M

I've always imagined Vogue editor Anna Della Russo -- she of the bizarre hats and wild fashion -- as a sort of weird banshee lady, sleepily flitting through life going to high fashion events and occasionally enjoying nights out with her band of wacky friends. You know, sort of like fashion's version of Britney Spears.

First Look: The H&M Conscious Collection

Just in time for Earth Day, H&M is putting out a collection of eco-friendly sustainable evening wear called the Conscious Collection. Made from hemp, organic cotton and recycled polyester, the capsule collection has  already been spotted on celebs like Michelle Williams and Amanda Seyfreid, and consists of wearable -- but fancy! -- dresses and short…

H&M’s “Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” Collection Is As Much of a Dystopian Nightmare as You’d Expect

So, let me get this straight: The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo is about a woman attempting to outrun a sadistic rapist and solve a murder, so naturally you'd want to design a line of clothing around her look. Well, not really. It seems that H&M's "Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" collection is mostly a…

H&M Announces Marni As Its Newest Collaborator

We've always wanted to like Marni -- the high-end, highly structured Italian designer line. But truthfully, it's hard to imagine how to wear many of designer Consuelo Castiglioni's boxy, somewhat masculine creations. Still, we're curious to see how Castiglioni's collaboration with H&M might turn out, especially because she claims, rather unconvincingly, that "everything has the…

Versace For H&M Inspires Fights In China

People, people, people. I know we all love a good deal, but is it really necessary to engage in physical fights with one another over H&M designer collaborations? That's exactly what happened at one H&M location in China on the release of the new Versace for H&M collection. Chinese shoppers began lining up yesterday afternoo…

The Good, The Bad & The WTF At The Versace For H&M Fashion Event

Last night celebs, models and designers turned out to preview Versace's new collaboration with H&M. But while the clothes coming down the runway were gorgeous, the ones on the backs of the audience were a mixed bag. Click through to see what we're talking about. …

Versace For H&M: Will You Wear It?

H&M designer collaborations have been hit or miss over the years. Some -- like the Viktor & Rolf collab -- were absolute stunners, while others we had high hopes for (Lanvin, in particular) fell terribly flat. So we're definitely a bit apprehensive about the new Versace for H&M collection that hits stores next month. First off,…

Teen Romance, Even Worse Than You Remember

Turns out you can blame more than just your crappy prom night on that d-bag who broke your heart back in high school! A University Of Maine study has confirmed that the quality of a woman's early romances can be seen as an indicator for depression. If a girl is constantly looking for reassurance i…
