Was Your Dress $1,000 or $100? H&M Keeps Them Guessing With a Balenciaga-esque Spring Lookbook



hm-spring-2010-h-and-m-1

Our spring wishlist is already embarrassingly long, but the latest H&M lookbook has made crossing off a few of the items a little bit easier to do. On-trend, well-constructed, and affordable to boot, the collection is full of pieces--a great anorak, those going-out trousers, and your new favorite maxi skirt--that you can get without having to drop a G. The luxuriously draped dress with the "you won't believe I'm not a thousand dollar" sleeves will have people slapping you once they find out you're in H&M and not Balenciaga, and prints reminiscent of Peter Pilotto and crisp suits à la Jil Sander are just the things we're looking for to spice up our post-winter wardrobes, though we can do without those leather overalls. The only thing that could make this line even better? An earlier drop date. Santa--you listening? (Les Mads)
