Roberto Cavalli at H&M

 Cavallihm

Whilst
Topshop have H&M trumped when it comes to celebrity ranges, H&M have
had good quality ranges by Viktor & Rolf and now they have a new range by
Roberto Cavalli. As Cavalli is usually known for his garish exotic prints, I
can’t say I was particularly looking forward to this range, but I’m pleasantly
surprised by his understated range.

With that
said, it is a bit too understated,
bordering on boring. The trench coat is probably the best of the range I’ve
seen so far, but even that is done better by COS and will only be about £30
more expensive. The suits don’t have a great cut, as they’re not quite slim
enough for H&M’s target market and their chunky cardigan is boring with no
design quirks to speak of.

I could
well be wrong though and all these pieces could look great when worn. His range
will be in 200 selected stores around the world (with H&M being the only
high street store without a UK website yet) and is available from November 8th.
