Preview: Sonia Rykiel for H&M

As I mentioned earlier, tonight I was at the showroom in Zurich to preview the latest H&M designer collaboration, namely the lingerie collection of Sonia Rykiel which is going to be in stores December 5th. I was confronted with beautiful things a girl doesn't necessarily need but still want... :)



There were some more casual underwear like the ones with stripes or plain colored ones like in pink and blue but I was more attracted to the rail above with garter belts and high waisted panties.



The silk kimonos in different lenghts were really glamorous.



This body, which also comes in black & blue, was one of my favourites. The shape creates an illusion of a slimmer waist and the black stitching and the chunky zipper back closure are really beautiful.





The same with this balconette bra: zipper at the front, larger straps than usual. Definitely something else than your usual lace bra...



The collection also entails silk knickers and nightgowns, with or without the flower detail.







lace corset



bow detail on the striped panties



jeweled slippers



Although I wasn't originally planning on buying anything I changed my mind after the visit at the showroom. I'll be at an H&M store this saturday to treat myself to a motivational gift before the final exams. From my biased review it's probably not so hard to guess what I'll be after...

I cannot wait for this collaboration! It's too bad I won't be able to get to an H&M until next week. Hopefully it won't all be gone.

I really like the emphasis v eryone is putting on underwear. It is the foundations of an outfit (literally) and can be the outfit like that amazing body suit. I love how the structure in the bars are softened with the flowing kimonos and bows and flowers.
Oh also the colour pallete

Mary Jane said...

wow the beige corsets are unbelievable! not to mention the food too :P

Denise said...

The beige/blush pink bras are pretty nice, except the sewing on it kind of bothers me... it's not really that straight, and it's black on beige... a little too obvious in the quality for me :(

Ich finde die KOllektion an sich recht hübsch, aber ich kann mich nicht damit anfreunden, solche highwasted Höschen zu tragen :)

@ Betsi: Ja die high waisted panties sind auch nichts für mich, bin deshalb froh dass sie auch "normale" tangas haben...

@ Denise: Actually I like that the sewing is in a darker color, makes it interesting I think. But on the body in black/blue you don't see the sewing...

I really like the "bunny tail" rose panties, which perfectly match the high heeled slippers! And, lucky me, I can use the Shop Online, so 2morrow at 10.00 they'll be mine....
I do hope the quality won't disapoint me, as I found the Jimmy Choo shoes a bit cheapish, I sold them the day I got them. What did you think about the quality?

Jenny Cindy said...

Oh so schön! Mir gfalled au am beschte die retro BHs - bsunders in rosa <3

Ich hoffe es hät nöd z'viil Lüüt >.< Bin bis jetzt no nie für so e H&M Kollektion am morge früeh dete gsi drum weissi gar nöd so wie das isch. Wär debi binene Kafi falls mer sich gseht - ich wird im H&M ade Bahnhofstrasse 92 si. Wär cool wänn mer sich würd gseh!
