Sport and futurism were the themes at last night’s H&M Studio show for autumn/winter 2015, held at the Grand Palais in Paris. Models such as Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid and Joan Smalls wore pieces from H&M’s key seasonal collection, which combined functional separates with feminine layers. Solange Knowles, Audrey Tautou and Noomi Rapace were among the guests who sat front row at the H&M Studio show, held during Paris Fashion Week in a uniquely constructed lunar landscape inside the Grand Palais.
The set imagined a fashion moon landing, with a colony of space craft dotted around the catwalk. The show was opened by style icon and music producer Caroline de Maigret, who walked the runway like the first woman on the moon, de Maigret entered the space pod and started her live DJ set that put the show in motion.
The show was attended by 600 international editors and guests, as well as a worldwide audience who watched the show live on hm.com, specially hosted by the French fashion journalist and presenter Alexandra Golovanoff.
“There’s such great energy about this H&M Studio collection. I love the sporty and futuristic pieces, which are perfect to mix and match with functional outerwear and the tomboy glamour of lurex and sequins,” says Ann-Sofie Johansson, Creative Advisor at H&M.
Zip-up jackets and coats paired with slender pants set the sporty mood on the H&M Studio catwalk for autumn/winter 2015, with futuristic shimmer from lurex knits and dresses, along with functional pieces like hooded anoraks and zip-fronted jumpsuits.
H&M Studio is H&M’s limited-edition collection of key seasonal pieces, with its own dedicated design team. The autumn/winter 2015 collection will be available in 200 stores, as well as online, from September 10, 2015.
“That was my favorite H&M Studio collection so far. I loved everything about the H&M Studio show. There’s a green turtleneck and pants I want to get my hands on right now,” said Solange Knowles. “H&M is such a great brand. Every cool girl, every model, everybody wears H&M,” said Karolina Kurkova.
