H&M pioneer gender fluid denim collection

Unisex clothing has been around for years, but it hasn’t always been all that inspirational in the style department.

However, H&M are pioneering yet another genderless collection  which truly blurs the lines of feminine and masculine clothing.

Their new fashion forward denim line called ‘Denim United’ offers a laid back and super wearable, range of stylish, yet loose fitting clothing. Relaxed fits are all the range at the moment  and the new collection really highlights this, with XL Jackets, dungarees, jeans and shorts all layered with white and grey sportswear classics. The new line is due to launch globally and exclusively on H&M’s website on 23rd March, so be sure to make a note in your diary!

For more information check out the source of this article. If you’re interested in working with high street retailers and designing and developing denim fashion, then take a look at our recent Denim Design manager role.

Chanel’s AW17 Paris Fashion Week Show Blasts All Others Off The Face Of The Earth With Giant Rocket Ship

A set that was literally out of this world


Talk about putting something on blast…

Chanel’s AW17 fashion show in Paris was a show like no other this season.

Karl Lagerfeld, who is known for his extravagant sets, took one giant leap further for fashion this March, as he turned the Grand Palais into a space station, complete with life-size rocket ship.

Not only that, but the spaceship came to life during the show, blasting skywards 10 metres towards the domed glass roof of the Champs-Élysées venue.

The rocket was a reported 35 metres high, and it included two launch cabins and two satellite antennas. A little birdy also told us that the whole set took 9 days to build.
