I actually didn't believe my eyes last night, when I read the news that Rei Kawakubo (she of whom I am an eternal fangirl) was actually doing a diffusion range for H&M, which more or less covers everything possible for any collection- from menswear down to perfume*- and I know none of it is ever going to find its way to where I am (off-topic rant: why on earth does shopping for non-ethnic clothes that won't break the bank, always suck? Screw BRIC and the 'emerging markets' faff, just give me something decent to buy, dammit!), but it's still fairly thrilling nevertheless- I mean, expecting avant-gardeism of the kind so often seen on the Comme runways isn't rational, but I'd love to see a few things in the line of the 'Play' t-shirts (last picture). And it's not as if it can't work, I'm actually pretty optimistic..so leaving off with some pictures might just be the way to go..
I'm also sorry for not having posted for several days...but things are mad here.
EDIT: I've just been told I don't really have tomorrow off, after all. I do feel so gypped, particularly considering the fact that my lunch plans (involving a really good friend I haven't seen for nearly eight months now) will have to go in the bin.
*it's only the last one that gives me pause.
