ceceliadean and erin lucas H&M Celebrates Matthew Willamson: Style Shots

The consensus seems to be from what we’ve heard around town that the collaboration between H&M and Matthew Williamson , has been the best by far. Eclipsing Sir Karl, Stella , Madonna and even Comme Des Garcons ? .  The celebration of the launch took place this week in NY.On the Next page a few of  the coolest style: Visionaire editor Cecilia Dean, looking very ‘rock chic’ in a good way and Erin Lucas( from The city, that I have yet to watch) showing how a feather skirt can actually work. Lots more including Adrien Brody(!) , Chanel Iman,  MK Olsen and Patricia Field.via Wire.

CDG x H&M my 2 cents

 CDG x H&M my 2 cents

I just got back from my midtown treck to H&M and I have to applaud the retail staff  for having fully recovered by lunch-time,you would have no idea it was a mob scene 3 hours ago.Aside from the launch the store on 51st was relatively quiet.

 CDG x H&M my 2 cents

The line had alot of what I would call  "fillers " like  button down shirts , trench coats and crew neck sweaters (there’s still a plethora available on 51street). That had no other detail than a CDG and H&M label.I really wanted to see some interesting stiching , lining or even an interesting choice of buttons .

 CDG x H&M my 2 cents

The good thing tough Is that most of the pieces usually get returned and end up on the sale rack like the Viktor and Rolf Tuxedo pants I scored for 20 bucks! So if you missed out fret not ,just give it a couple of days…

CDG x H&M Now Online,Hmm….

 CDG x H&M Now Online,Hmm....

The Comme des Garcons x H&M line was made available a couple of days ago and of course it leaves me wondering if I will be one of those on line that morning…The appeal of the pieces of course has to do more with the ingenuity of the very talented H&M stylists  in representing the Comme des Garcons aesthetic,than the pieces themselves.I really tought the polkadot ensemble above was more than a scarf and a cardigan (sad face..) Most of the pieces are fairly simple .The jackets and the bottoms are so far the most interesting pieces style-wise but I predict everyone will kill over the polka dot stuff and then I have to see what that  fabric feels like…

 Comme des Garcons X H&M

Here we have a peak at the images the comme des garcons for H&M,courtesy  Fashionista.

From what I see the line is true to The CDG aesthetic, still toned down  but definitely authentic ..I applaud the consistency…polka dots I might actually wear…although styling can kick things up a noctch..I’ll wait to actually see and feel the pieces…

Michael Antonio @ WSA

26 February 2008, 18.30 | Posted in Shoes | No comments »

Erika, champion p.r. rep for Turner PR, usually reaches out to me before the WSA and invites me to see a brand she handles called Michael Antonio. And I’ll be honest, I always hesistate to accept ’cause HighSnobette’s focus is the fast and the edgey and when it comes to women’s shoes, the expensive. Yes, we are little snobs (and proud of it!)

But let’s face it, while I fantasize about myself flossing in a pair of Giuseppe Zanotti platforms, there’s that little thing called the reality of my bank account. And most women are like me, we appreciate and covet designer, but we’re not wearing it head-to-toe and we’re definitely not wearing it everyday. And when it comes to shoe trends that are clearly going to come and go quickly, it’s not just okay, but sensible to go with a brand, which, while not the real thing, comes close to approximating it. And Micahel Antonio, which Erika describes as “the H&M of footwear,” is that kind of brand.

Here are some of the up-and-coming spring shoes I liked the most:

^^Gladiators in every glossy shade under the sun

^^More glads featuring funky faux snakeskin (or maybe croc…)

RTEmagicC MichaelAnt3HighHeels.jpg Michael Antonio @ WSA

^^Strappy highhells with contrasting straps and gold buckles

RTEmagicC MichaelAntPink.jpg Michael Antonio @ WSA

^^Close-up on the pink ones; I’m gonna own a pair of sandals in this color this spring. I promise you that.

Click to the right if you want to see more Michael Antonio, which can be purchased on the brand’s web site and in lots of different stores.

With great affection from,
