It seems just like yesterday that the Jimmy Choo hysteria had girls in Hong Kong lining up at obscene hours of the morning outside stores, and now get ready for yet another designer collaboration for H&M – Sonia Rykiel designing slinky undies. We’ve taken a peep at some of the limited images available online of the collection, and we’re not sure these pieces will have the same “got-to-have-it” appeal of the Jimmy Choo line. The flowers on the boobs and butt of the pieces above would seem to make them almost unwearable under tight-fitting clothes (unless you like that lumpy-bum look of course!).
These pale pink items look super-cute on the models, but we all know high-waisted skin-coloured knickers can steer into big-time granny territory (remember Bridget Jones?), so I think I’ll be looking out for the flesh-coloured bras and black stockings and giving the rest of it a miss. The collection is due to launch on the 5th December officially, but perhaps because of the Jimmy Choo hysteria, there are already a few of the pieces in the Queen’s Road store at least.
Let us know your thoughts! Will you be heading to H&M to check out the collection?
