Anna Glover x H&M: more collabs like that please !

Very recently, H&M launched a collab with designer Anna Glover. Google hardly knew her before that event but she’s a known textile/surface designer, working mainly for home decoration if I understood well.

That is so fresh ! There are mainly floral patterns (a few insects are lost here and there) but also a some stripes and a few plain items.

What I purchased

I opted for the two patterns in the above picture.

First, this blouse. The pattern is really nice BUT the shade of yellow is actually a bit greenish, like a pastel neon yellow. Not too convinced but it would have given it a try if the material wasn’t that synthetic and hot. Plus I had sized up for a loose fit but that was too much. I couldn’t imagine wearing it under the sun, so I had to return it.

Maybe the lyocell blouse or viscose dress would be more comfortable to wear… Or I may opt for  the grey version of that pattern if I can find it in store.

 

 

 

On the contrary, I’m keeping the second and third items. I took these paper bag trousers and the matching blouse in heavy weight viscose.

The pattern is delicate and exquisite. The shade is an off-black dark green, very subtil. I’m a total fan of the jumpsuit effect without the inconvenient (it’s easy to dress/undress and you can wear a jacket over it: double check). Just the sleeves are oddly shaped. I’d rather have classic kimono sleeves but anyway.

FYI, I took my usual tailored trousers size and I did well (otherwise the elastic waist band would be too tight). The length is perfect to wear with mid/high hells (I’m 1,65m) but I will probably wear it with flats (I can fix it easily though). I took my shirt size for the top and could have sized down.

 

Have you fallen for the Anna Glover capsule ? Tell me in comments !

Why that is an exceptional collab

That capsule is interesting in different ways. For once, it is not a luxury collab. And the prices remain as low as usual H&M prices. I would have appreciated better fabrics though (and could have spent a bit more for that, it’s a collab after all). Most of all, the sizing is usual H&M sizing, meaning no segregation for plus sizes (not usual for a capsule). Thank you Anna Glover and H&M ! Therefore, many items up to XL (yes, yes, yes, patterns for everyone !).
