Beloved by street style bloggers and practically worshipped by just about every girl with a personal style blog and a camera (boyfriend photographer sold separately), Anna Dello Russo is a woman who wears many hats — both figuratively and literally. Not only does the colorful editor-at-large for Vogue Nippon strut for camera flashes (often wearing fantastic toppers, such as a certain gold cherry number ) at Fashion Weeks worldwide, but she also has her own blog, an eponymous perfume she spritzes on from a shoe-shaped flacon and side gigs with Macy’s and more.
For the first time, she’ll be putting her name on a line of accessories as she teams up with fast-fashion megabrand H&M to release a collection that will have bloggers salivating and clamoring for more!
Debuting October 4 at H&M stores worldwide, the range of minaudieres, jewelry and shoes draws from inspiration taken from Anna’s own Milanese pied-a-terre. Turquoise accents come straight from one of her favorite dressers, and all the gilt? Well let’s just say she’s got classic Italian style when it comes to heavy metals.
“I am excited by this collaboration: This is the first time H&M [has involved] a Fashion Director in a special project. This is the sign of an important evolution in fashion, and I am both thrilled and humbled to be the one chosen to lead it,” said Anna Dello Russo. “I wanted to create precious accessories that are impossible to find. As a stylist I know accessorization is essential: It is the personal touch to any outfit. With these pieces everybody can have fun, turning an ordinary day into a fantastic fashion day.”
Now there’s more ways to pile on the bracelets a la Anna, from gold crocodiles to serpents and more. Or choose a few standout pieces like a cabochon-encrusted clutch, embellished-to-the-nines sunglasses or strappy sandals that all go nicely in the “trolley” (translation: luggage on wheels) that she’s included in her capsule collection. Whether or not it holds the whole collection is yet to be seen, but we say go for the gold and style it like you mean it!
