Inspired by strong female artists and the beauty of nature H&M's latest collaboration with Lebanese designer Sandra Mansour features intricate designs in a muted colour palette, where handcrafted details like edgy ruffles and layers of romantic fabrics create a youthful, empowering look.
Appropriately titled ‘Fleur du Soleil,’ the collection boasts a mix of soft and strong pieces ranging from printed t-shirts to flowing skirts and much more - perfect for the warmer months of the year.
"The inspiration for the H&M collaboration was nature and natural elements. Especially the sunflower, which represents the cycle of life, and its dependency on sun and light. Poetry and painters inspired the selection of fabric – the dark laces, jacquards, and embroidered organza. With the 'Fleur du Soleil' collection, I want to talk to women around the world by sending a message of hope, something we really need right now,” designer Sandra Mansour said.
The collection will be available online and in stores from August 27.
