High street label H&M’s latest collaboration is a pretty unusual one. The much loved clothingcompany has joined hands with Paris’s Musée des Arts Décoratifs to create their latest Conscious Collection that is inspired by the archives of the museum. French art director and model Julia Restoin Roitfeld will be the face of the campaign for this collection.

H&M’s design team explored the museum’s archival fashions and the work of artists like Gustave Moreau to create a collection that is glamorous and modern while maintaining some artistic flair for the red carpet. Expect interesting prints, delicate fabrics and intricate details.

“I am honored to be the ambassador of such a unique project. I think that the idea of creating a collection inspired by the history of art and fashion is fantastic, especially since it is made with innovative and sustainable materials which are the future of fashion,” says Julia who fits the aesthetic of the collection thanks to her effortless, modern style.

The much anticipated collection will be launched on Thursday April 7th and will coincide with the opening of the exhibition, Fashion forward – Three centuries of fashion. The exhibition will feature selected styles from the H&M archives, including a look from the first ever H&M designercollaboration with Karl Lagerfeld in 2004 as well as one silhouette from the new Conscious Exclusive collection.

The H&M Conscious Exclusive 2016 be available in 180 stores worldwide and online starting Thursday April 7th 2016.

The Silk Dress


I’ve been receiving requests for some dressier maternity outfits (for casual ones, you can refer to this post – I’m pretty much in one of these dresses on most days). Luckily for my comfort, I haven’t had too many very formal reasons to dress up, though friends keep egging me on to be more social (I suspect at least partially motivated by my designated driver status). I’ve had some dinner events in the past month though, so snapped some pictures to share with you all.

Dress 6 months

Yes, I still wear heels…I always grip the handrail though and really only wear teetering ones like these when it’s a strict “car seat straight to dinner seat” type of situation. Otherwise, I’m always in flat sandals or moderate wedge espadrilles.

The bag is my black sellier Kelly – I’ve been meaning to share it on the blog because I wanted to do a comparison between retourne and sellier styles, but have fallen behind. I’ll try to do a review soon. But in the meantime, I’ll say that Grace Kelly had it right – it does a great job of hiding a baby bump!

Silk Dress

The heels are Nicholas Kirkwood (closest versions are this pearl pair and these Hexagon pumps, both really cool). The dress I’m wearing is actually one that I had made for me awhile back, after searching fruitlessly for the perfect silk resort dress and not finding one that wasn’t monstrously priced. Silk + beach weather + salt water + sand doesn’t always mix well, so I don’t like to pack pricey clothes on resort holidays. I love the cut and embroidery and was really happy with how it turned out. I’ve packed it in the past as a nicer outfit to wear while on beach holidays, but the light silk and looser cut has made it perfect for spring evenings as well…and it’s forgiving even with my six month baby belly.

Actually I’ve realized that this dress has been so accommodating, that I’m creating it in a different color and a slightly smaller cut for after pregnancy, to give me something to look forward to. A few readers have given the same advice, to pick up a few items to have as a treat for after giving birth. Hoorah!
