H&M Studio S/S 2017 “See Now, Buy Now” Fashion Show Inspired By Love

H&M Studio S/S 2017

H&M Studio unveiled its latest runway show in Paris, a “see now, buy now” S/S 2017 collection inspired by the power of love, grace, strength, and passion of ballet, featuring both womenswear and for the first time, menswear. Watch the highlights of the show here.

“Bringing fashion immediately from catwalk to checkout marks a new era for the fashion industry and we value the direct communication we can have with customers through a ‘see now, buy now’ collection. Anything that brings us closer to our customers and makes fashion even more accessible is very positive,” says Pernilla Wohlfahrt, H&M’s Head of Design and Creative Director.

For the show, the vast, concrete expanse of the iconic Tennis Club de Paris was transformed into a warm, inviting space broadcasting messages of love and togetherness. With special guests such as Nicki Minaj, Charlie XCX, Alexa Chung, The Atomics and Irene Kim there soaking up the atmosphere.

On the catwalk, which featured a stellar cast of models including Gigi and Bella Hadid, Adwoa Aboah, Amber Valletta, Jordan Barrett and Luis Borges, a balance between tailoring and sportswear was struck – clean-cut wool garments worn with fine knits, voluminous silk and translucent nylon, while ruffles and jolts of bright pink were set against monochrome anoraks and reworked trekking sandals.

Here are our favourite looks from the collection.

“With this collection we want to send a global message of love. There are a few pieces that carry the word again and again, kind of like a ticker tape and as a constant reminder of what is important. It feels like now, more than ever, we all need positive feelings and thoughts in our lives,” says Pernilla Wohlfahrt.

Following the show, the over 800 guests in attendance – along with a global audience watching live at studio.hm.com and via VR on H&M’s YouTube channel – were all treated to an electrifying performance by the chart-topping singer- songwriter The Weeknd, who played hits such as Starboy, Can’t Feel My Face and I Feel It Coming.
