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 entire collection will be available in selected stores and online at ae.hm.com from August 6. Bazaar takes a closer look at ‘Fleur du Soleil’ here.
