Givenchy Collaborating With H&M? Not So Fast…
We already discussed the top collaborations of the season, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t still looking to the future. We still have Nordstrom for Target to look forward to, with their long list of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week alums, and Narciso Rodriguez for Kohl’s is already doing great. But what’s in store for the fashion world in Spring 2013?
The dust is still settling on the empty H&M shelves that Maison Martin Margiela collection called home for the short time they lasted there, yet rumors of H&M’s next collaboration are up in the air. What? Is that Givenchy for H&M we hear? The rumors have been spreading like wildfire for a few days now, especially over Twitter and Facebook.
Time to put the rumors to rest, though: while that would be the collaboration of the century, both Givenchy and H&M have denied claims. In fact, H&M’s creative director admitted to the Telegraph that there will be no collaborations at all for the Spring of 2013.
“We will not have any [collaborations] for spring ” she told us. “We decided to skip it, as we have had so many this year. So it’ll be something for next November.”
Apparently, there can be too much of a good thing. Too many high-end and prestigious collaborations for 2012 means we’ll have a little deficit for a bit.
Not to fear, though! We’re sure someone else (Kohl’s!?) will have some exceptional collaborations to come in the next few months, as their collection with Narciso Rodriguez has been doing well. Target has its never-ending seasonal collaborations, and other retailers are constantly collaborating, including Aldo, Jeffrey Campbell, and our favorite online retailer NastyGal.
So while there may be no Givenchy, or any other haute couture line, for H&M next spring, lets hold out hope for GH&M for the Summer or Fall! We can all patiently await another iconic collaboration, can’t we!?
What collaborations would you hope to see for spring? Let us know in the comments!
