It seems like every day brings news of a new fast fashion collaboration, a runway-to-everyday trend that’s responsible for maybe more than a few impulse buys in our own closets. Some of the collections have gotten more press than others, so we thought we’d do some research to give you a round-up of what we love that’s out there now and what’s to come. Have any others to add to the list? Let us know in the comments!
Printed Pajama Pant, $17.99, Josie Natori for Target
Josie Natori has a special intimates collection out now for Target, and another one to follow in time for Valentine’s Day. The bold, poppy colors are modern, but the silhouettes are still classic.
Jacket, $69.95, Versace for H&M
It’s hard to miss all the hoopla over the new Versace for H&M collection, only available in-store. We like this cropped twill jacket in a bright and bold print that still stays true to Versace’s roots.
TOMS Fashion Gives Back, $54, TOMS.com
TOMS shoes has partnered with Glamour magazine to promote their “Fashion Gives Back” campaign. A-listers like Amber Valetta have designed their own shoes, and TOMS will give a portion of the proceeds to benefit humanitarian organizations around the globe. The cotton canvas shoes have been spotted everywhere, and for good reason: they’re eye-catching, cute, and comfortable!
It’s unsurprising that the bigger names – Target, H&M – are leading the charge in fast fashion, but they’re not the only ones. Karl Lagerfeld, whose 2004 collection for H&M was among the first in fast-fashion history, is back, designing 70 pieces or so for KARL Label, which will be sold on Net-a-Porter.com beginning January 25.
Our round-up wouldn’t be complete without the collection we told you about that’s inspired by Lisbeth Salander, the anti-heroine of one of this year’s most hotly anticipated movies, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Those who loved the trilogy will be unsurprised that costume designer Trish Summerville kept the look dark, moody, and edgy for her 30 piece collection for H&M. It debuted in Paris on November 28 and is now in 180 H&M stores worldwide.
Long Sleeved Tuxedo Tee, $16.99, Harajuku Mini for Target
For the younger cottonistas, we like Gwen Stefani’s Harajuku Mini line for Target, which we wrote about last month. The styles are trendy yet age-appropriate, and the prices are budget-friendly. The best part? A second installment of the collection hits floors on December 25.
