The H&M Studio Holiday Capsule
Launching for the first time this winter, the H&M Studio Holiday Capsule finds a seductive, intimate elegance in a pared-down approach to occasionwear.
The minimal luxury of a silk slip dress. The sculptural grace of a draped blouse or a wrapped mini skirt with a cascading side train. The allure of a curve-caressing panelled lace evening dress or a voluptuous layered-tulle gown. The captivating illusion of a sleeveless column dress with a trompe l'oeil printed front or a structured mini dress with an exaggerated waist. The timeless appeal of a floor-length tailored wool coat. Every piece in this concise collection is a deliberate exercise in breaking style down to its essentials.
The designs also lift usually hidden elements of lingerie design, featuring visible seams, hook-and-eye closures, body-sculpting panels and transparent mesh. This inspiration carries through to the colour palette — a soft spectrum of powder tones mixed with midnight black, intense scarlet, silver and blush pink. Geometric jewellery commands an instant sense of presence, providing a carefully defined contrast to the delicate, sultry energy of the garments.
These are distinctive, confident pieces with a sense of emotional durability — designed to remain relevant and ready to wear through years of events, special occasions and celebrations.
The H&M Studio Holiday Capsule launches in selected stores and on hm.com 7 December 2023.
