The Shape of Things

The H&M fall 2009 look book for women has me wishing fall was already here. H&M is certainly drawing much deserved buzz these days. Just a few days ago it was announced that Jimmy Choo is collaborating with H&M to design shoes, bags, and clothing this fall. My interest has suddenly peaked with the many exciting plans H&M has in store for us. I just wish New York and Los Angeles weren't the only stores in the U.S. that you can get your hands on such trendy pieces. I think these wonderful collaborations and looks should be more accessible for H&M fanatics. 

I'm absolutely captivated by the women's look book. It's such an innovative and daring statement for fall. These outfits are full of volume and shape. I'm smitten with the large coats, the baggy pants, the voluminous shoulders, and the clever use of layering. Women can brave chilly temperatures in these dramatic ensembles and still manage to look sexy and alluring. This year fall fashion will prove that fitted is not the only way to attract intrigue.

Sarah Klassen- These ensembles look as though they came right off a designer runway. I might have to make a day trip to NYC when they arrive!
