First Look at H&M's Marimekko Collection Heres a very early look at what to expect from H&M's tribute to Marimekko, which hits stores April 10. A brief summary: colors, colors, and more colors. Since its not a designer collaboration like Karl Lagerfeld or Roberto Cavalli, the price point is lower than you might expect. A one-piece swimsuit is $34.90, an apron dress is $49.90. The 50 piece collection also includes menswear: Bermuda shorts are $39.90, short-sleeved shirts are $29.90. On the whole, the collection packs enough vivid patterns and punchy colors to make dressing for even the stickiest New York afternoon feel a little more like preparing for a tropical vacation. Check out the rest of the women's collection after the jump.
Rami From Project Runway to Sell at Intermix Project Runway winner Christian Siriano might have America swooning over his whole "fierce" thing, but Rami Kashou's doing just fine since his line will be sold at Intermix this spring. He tells Jewcy: I just shipped out the Spring/Summer 2008 collection, which you can find in NY at the store Intermix. Ill also be selling a design on the Home Shopping Network. And in mid-March, Im flying back to the East Coast to attend an event for Seeds of Peace, which aims to improve relations and encourage peace in the Middle East. Wow. Now remember how our very own Fug Girls said he should win because he's the most marketable? Yeah, the proof is Intermix's coveted pudding. Check out his Spring/Summer '08 collection on his website, or just hit the meatpacking district when the weather gets warm, because Rami's is the kind of stuff that drips off the party girls. Which we can fully get behind, so long as they don't touch their toes when they dance.
