H&M x Kenzo

h&m x kenzo

It’s that time of the year again, when H&M launch their big designer collaboration, and this year was with the French fashion house Kenzo. Just like their last collection with Balmain, fans queued outside the stores in the cold, some even from the previous night, in order to be the first to get their hands on this much anticipated collection of H&M x Kenzo. In London there were even security guards, in order to ensure it does not get unruly!

I was never the greatest fan of Kenzo. Nor animal prints. However, this skirt from H&M x Kenzo collection had my name written all over it! My heart always skips a beat when I see a beautiful, multi-tiered pleated skirt.

Unfortunately, I can’t say the same for the collection overall. I found it a tad too loud and quirky, but I do appreciate the collaboration’s attempt to make the 80s cool again. I also like the fact that the new H&M x Kenzo collaboration, encourages people to take a risk with what they wear and get out of their comfort zone. It definitely inspired me to swap some safe dark colors in my wardrobe, with a bold pop of color that would make Cyndi Lauper proud.

Last year with H&M x Balmain collaboration, I really liked every single piece. They were much more wearable and feminine. I am not sure how much wear would one get of the tiger-striped ankle boots and jumpsuit, but whatever, fashion preferences and styles are completely subjective, plus I just LOVE my new skirt.

What do you think of the new collaboration of H&M with Kenzo? Did you get your hands on any piece? I would love to find out in the comments below!

Thank you for stopping by, have a great, colorful week!

    Love how you styled the skirt Stella! I find the collection so hard to style, as I am very small I’m afraid I will be lost in frills and colors. I love your pullover so mch! Is it comfortable against the skin?
    Have a nice week my darling.
    Cheers,

      Happy Monday Tatjana mou! I agree with you, the collection overall is not the easiest one to style, but I think there is something for every style and body type in it! As for the sweater, it is super comfortable. I have a very sensitive skin and it’s always hard to find a knit sweater that does not make me itching. This one is so perfect that I also got it in grey, perfect to wear as a dress too with the proper layering!
      Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a beautiful week! xoxo

    Hi Stella!
    Wow I’m so impressed how you styled this skirt so elegantly, I could have not do better! I don’t think it’s an easy piece to wear and to style but somehow you managed to make it look super cool and not over the top. I love your blog even more now with the new design!
    Lots of Love

    Wow! You really are rocking that skirt! I feel like I would not be able to pull it off but you do it effortlessly! I love how you paired with with that pink sweater!

    Beautiful skirt Stella and perfectly styled.
    Of the H&M collaborations this one I think is too loud and does not seem very luxe. As much as I love Kenzo for their fragrances I think this is a collaboration I will skip-

      Then I am even happier you liked my look 🙂 Thank you and have a great week!

    Wow that skirt is quite a statement! You’re totally rocking it with that pink sweater 😉 Like you, I didn’t go crazy over this year’s H&M collaboration. Nothing against Kenzo, but it’s just simply not my style 🙂 The same goes to ’80s style but that’s another subject haha. Anyway, I do like your outfit because you incorporated those elements and still look very “you” <3

    I love that skirt Stella! And it looks so good paired with your pink sweater and leather jacket. That skirt was actually a handful of the pieces I liked from this collection. I do think it’s great that Kenzo is being exposed to a wider audience. That being said, I do find Kenzo to be a bit loud and bold for my taste. However, I do appreciate the how they mix animal prints, exaggerated silhouettes and vibrant colors. I think the Balmain collaboration was more up my alley.
    I hope you have a great week ahead!

      We are exactly on the same page my dear Jackie! Balmain collar was so much closer to my style and much more wearable, but the Kenzo x HM collection has some great pieces to add some statement in a simple outfit! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great start to the week!

    I love seeing the collaborations between H&M and designers. Target had some great collaborations as well! You look stunning! I love, love, love the flirty skirt, the toughness of the jacket, and the softness of the sweater. Such a masterpiece… bringing all of these garments together! You have a great eye for color, texture, and fashion! Xx

    The bright pink is just the best pairing with that colourful skirt! I saw the collection and thought it was a bit too much for me to be able to wear but you’ve made this look really wearable! 🙂

    Hope you’re having a wonderful start to the week 🙂

    Stella, I love this skirt on you! I also love that you paired it with that hot pink sweater! I love that piece. Actually saw this skirt and put it in my basket online and then I walked away to get some food and I forgot about the item. Of course you know what happens from here right? I came back and they’re only larger sizes left so I ended up ordering it but don’t think it’s going to fit me so I’ll have to return it I bet. I actually like Kenzo but usually layered over more classic pieces. That label always does bold prints and I really like to keep things really sleek and classic. I wish however that I did buy from the Balmain collection. I missed out on that one as well. I think you wore this so well! It looks so pretty on you. Such a shame I left the computer. Lesson learned. Haha.

      Oh Miki!! Really? Well the good news is that if you ordered just a size up then it would be perfect. I usually wear 36 but this skirt is 38 and fits perfect! And also looks longer and fuller than the 36 I tried. Let me know how it was with you!! Hope you got it babe!
      Have a great start to the week and thanks for giving us a lesson, i will never leave my computer in the middle of online shopping! 😉

  12. 08/11/2016 / 06:37

    I have had similar feelings about this collab. I usually LOVE H&M designer collaborations but I personally feel that this one is a bit too bold to be wearable for me. I do however love that gorgeous tiered skirt!

    • Stella Asteria
      13/11/2016 / 17:51

      Now that I see the collection again and again, I would love to have a few more pieces to add some statement to a simple outfit! But some of them were way too quirky haha! Thanks for stopping by Kasie! x

    This skirt is so incredible! Love how you have styled it! I do agree though, this collaboration collection was not as wearable as the others and I only liked a couple of pieces personally!

    While these pieces are loud and quirky, I think you definitely made it in to a wearable look, so congrats! I could have never worn something like this and succeeded haha. I agree that the Balmain collection seems a bit more wearable for the average person. This Kenzo collection is fun though! Hope you had a great weekend lady.

    Who wouldn’t love this skirt, simply fabulous. I saw this post in my mobile when I commented in IG and it’s even more beautiful in the PC. As mentioned, I didn’t see this in Sydney, it probably was available but when I went at lunch time no any kind of skirt was there at all. You style this wonderfully too, I love that pink jumper and those rad shoes. Love it all!

    I am in love with your outfit! Another thing that you can say about that collection of Kenzo for H&M is that it is totally recognizable. I instantly knew that your skirt was Kenzo – so unique and fun. I also tend to collect dark-colored clothing for colder seasons, and I cannot wait to get my KenzoXHM package to burst out in some color. By the way, I love your beautiful styling of the skirt – it’s perfect with the oversized sweater, leather jacket, and those adorable Miu Miu flats with socks. Thanks for sharing! XO
