High street giant H&M's new designer collaboration is with Parisian Queen of Knits, Sonia Rykiel. C'est fantastique news!
We at InStyle HQ cannot wait - for what beats classic French fashion? It's Paris chic at high-street prices, bien-sûr.
The collaboration will hit the shops in two waves. The first, Sonia Rykiel pour H&M lingerie will go on sale on 5 December. The second launch, featuring knitwear and accessories for women and girls (aged 18 months to eight years old), will be in store from 20 February.
The gloriously feminine lingerie is the kind of Christmas gift we'd all like to see at the bottom of the tree... So get hinting now... We think these lovelies will be flying off the shelves toute de suite.
Famous for her playful, insouciant fashion, Rykiel's collection for H&M features quality knitwear in her trademark stripey designs, bright colours and all manner of pretty embellishment. What better way to cheer up a dismal, damp winter day, eh?
The two names make a winning style combo.
