Good morning, Monday. So Trumpy's in town and all heck has broken loose in Manhattan today. Couple that with an insane amount of humidity and you have yourself a cranky start to the workweek. Gah. Make it stop.
So on my way home from my Cezanne treatment yesterday (the next gen Keratin sans formaldehyde- I'll let you know if better living without chemistry is a real thing), I popped into H&M on 59th Street to see if I could use a credit I had. Needless to say, was not a problem.
Because if you dabble in the dark arts and like a bit of gothy glam in your Fall and Winter silhouette, H&M's new Studio collection is fuego. I for one love love love dark pieces in the winter time that have a bit of mystery mixed in.
I ended up with this pintuck caftan dress- it's so fabulous and easy and very Antwerp Six in its countenance. And glancing around at the rest of the pieces, I felt a similar dark and minimal loveliness. So on brand for me at the very least- ageless silhouettes for many body types and of course- perfect clothes for us NY babes who keep our palettes very much on the black side.
Here's a few more pieces to give you a vibe for the collection- there's plenty not in black too but tones are quite muted throughout. I'm in love with it (those boots though) and though it's not quite as cheap as regular run of the mill H&M, these are chic pieces that will go the distance should you be listening to Depeche Mode's "Black Celebration" this season or channeling Madonna in the "Frozen" video. I just watched the whole thing again ps and still one of my favorites of all time- Olivier Theyskens at his very best.
Because truly, you're frozen- when your heart's not open. To new clothes for Fall. Better open that wallet while you're opening your heart ps. Check out the whole collection here.
Cause that's what's up this new collection of a Monday in the very soupy 212. Yours, in keeping it dark and lovely. XO
