Fashionistas, rejoice! We have never had it so good right now thanks to the huge influx of designer/celeb x high street fashion collabs on offer, with the promise of more coming later in the year.
There have been some amazing fashion collabs in the past- Isabel Marant x H&M, JW Anderson x Topshop, Rihanna x River Island, Liberty x Nike, Kate Moss x Topshop, to name but a few! The point is, any form of collaboration these days is highly coveted, so you need to be in the know what to shop and when.
Presenting our fashion collabs hot list for summer and beyond. Get these dates in your diary pronto!
Alexa Chung x nails inc.: Just announced today, the gorgeous Alexa Chung will be collaborating on a range with nails inc. in celebration of their 15th anniversary. The line will feature ‘fabric’ inspired nail varnishes and will be available to buy online from August for £15 a pop. Woo, we can’t wait!
Katy Perry x Claire’s Accessories: This launched earlier this month to coincide with Katy’s Prism tour and already has a loyal fanbase of teens and tweens. We’re pretty big fans too if we are honest- HERO cuffs, lion necklaces and earrings make this a super wearable collection. Want to see more of Katy Perry? Then check out more of her cool looks here!
MAC x Everyone! We couldn’t pick one, so here’s the best collabs from MAC this season:
Maleficent x MAC: Launched last week to coincide with the amazing Disney film adaptation of Maleficent, this MAC range is simply stunning. For us it’s all about the packaging- super slick featuring the Maleficent branding- the way the pressed powders, blood red lipsticks and eye pencils are presented will make this a hit with shoppers and bloggers alike.
Lorde x MAC: Due to hit stores in June, we are huge fans of Lorde’s gothic look and reckon this could easily be a sell-out. Not much else is known about the collection itself yet, but expect plenty of dark and autumnal colours to mimic Lorde’s make-up style.
Kelly & Sharon Osbourne x MAC: When this was announced back in January, we were a bit skeptical. How were they going to blend both Kelly and Sharon’s style into a super cool collab? Well, we no longer have any doubts, because he collection is awesome. Purple lippies with cool names such as ‘Dodgy Girl’ lead the way for Kelly, whereas Sharon has gone for subtle coral tones for you to recreate her signature pout!
The Simpsons x MAC: This is one of the most hotly anticipated collabs of the year. Announced a fortnight ago, MAC will be producing a collection to coincide with the 25th Anniversary of The Simpsons and rumour has it that Marge will be the main source of inspiration! We literally can’t wait.
Rita Ora x Adidas: This seems like a match made in collab heaven if you ask us! Rita is the hottest girl of the moment and is often spotted in off-duty tracksuits and trainers from the brand. The line will be released in five capsule collections with three global launch dates. (Wow, she doesn’t do things by halves does she?!) The first date to put in your diary is 21 August for the ‘Black’ collection, followed by ‘Pastel’ and ‘Colorblock Pack’ landing on 4 September and finally ‘Spray’ and ‘Roses’ will be available on 1 November. Rita released a teaser image from her first collection on Instagram a few days ago and yes, it really is as good as you’d expect 😉
Alexander Wang x H&M: Oh they are good those fashion peeps @ H&M. In the past they have hosted fashion legends Karl Largerfeld, Versace, Jimmy Choo, Marni and Lanvin, with Alexander Wang soon to join their ranks when his collection launches in November. Start planning your buying strategy now…
