It’s been a while that I’ve been avoiding H&M. Although their collections are always ahead of trend, and most of their spectacular ad campaigns have succeeded to lure me into their stores, I always end up disappointed with their product quality. Their designer collaborations didn’t help either to change my perception on how poorly they were made. I guess that’s how we get the lower price tags.
Somehow not too long ago, I ate my own word. I confessed; I’m pretty impressed with H&M’s Fall 2009 collection. I love every single piece they have, especially their outerwear, vests, and their Fall accessories: studded cuffs, spiky gloves, etc. I could picture the whole city going goth glam, spotting rocker/biker chic accessories, and vampire clad makeup! *hint..i heard a vampire inspired makeup will be launched soon .. being a late bloodsucker-groupie, I’m up with anything associated with these creatures especially the way they dressed in their past life around “hundred years ago” lol ..;D
Anyway, I hope these H&M Fall 09 collections are not just another look book styling trap that I’ve always been falling into! The Fall 09 H&M collection would be available at the end of August 2009 and I can’t wait to fast forward to the end of summer! See more photos courtesy of nitrolicious, here.

H&M will also collaborate with designer Jimmy Choo to launch a collection of clothing, shoes, bags and accessories. This is a pretty bold collaboration with one of the world’s leading accessory maestro. The collection would be available from November 14, 2009 in around 200 H&M stores around the world.
