Affordable luxury: the fashion industry’s oxymoron. Pick up a Karl Lagerfeld jacket at Macy’s, a Missoni skirt at Target or a Lanvin dress at H&M. Until recently, this was unheard of. High-end, designer pieces were only available to the wealthy or those willing to forego paying rent for a month…or two. These days, as in tomorrow, you can pick up a silk Versace dress at H&M for $199.
According to WWD, the collection will include apparel as well as home furnishings; a first for H&M. In September, Missoni for Target offered home furnishings that flew off the shelves as fast as the clothing flew off the racks.
We think everyone needs a little bit of luxury to maintain a fashionably-healthy lifestyle. What’s your take on the myriad of collections and who do you think should collaborate next?
