Viktor&Rolf for H&M

My friend and former editor Celine N., who is currently studing in FIT NY, just told me that she got Paul&Joe jeans from Target! Ain't that the coolest? Green with retail envy, I decided to peek into Target (well the Target website really) to check out items that will pique my interest from the Paul&Joe collection ...and look at this pretty French school girl top I found! Its got these fine, tailored details like a rounded collar, pintucks and puffed sleeves. Best of all, it only retails for $19.99! Not bad eh?

But more than that, Cel also mentioned that design duo Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren, more popularly known as the guys behind the label Viktor&Rolf, are coming out with a line for H&M!

Heralded in the press for their classic yet modern take on fashion, and conceptual couture work, the pair says "If Haute couture is the most sublime form of fashion, H&M is fashion at its most democratic. Our roots are based in couture. It's the heart and soul of our work. But we also love to play with opposites: transformation is a key element of our signature style. For us, fashion is an antidote to reality. It's a great opportunity to communicate our vision with such a large audience of H&M devotee." (from Masstige at work!!!

How about Inno Sotto for Bayo? or Jojie Lloren for Kamiseta? Now that would be interesting!

Yup that would be interesting. It's just too bad that when we talk of designers in Manila, its always about ball gowns and party clothes. Then if we say retail, they only have casual clothing. Only a few stores really cater to the middle ground and most of them are also imports. If designers can start designing pretty things for retailers, then maybe the fashion scene in Manila would perk up a bit

Sure they are all high in style but poor in quality :(... H & M is really stylish but it's the kind you wear a few times then just throw away at the end of the season-- disposable in the true sense of the word... Even the rafe collection at Target-- it looks good from afar but upclose-- you get what you paid for and $20 (for the clutch) ain't taking you far..
