After the genius selections of Karl Lagerfield, Stella McCartney and Viktor & Rolf, this is a bit of a let down. H&M has announced that Italian designer Roberto Cavalli, best known for back-baring gowns favored by folks like Beyoncé, will be designing a one-off collection for the Swedish high-street chain. Set to make its worldwide debut on November 8th, the collection will be comprised of 20 items for gents and 25 for the ladies, as well as lingerie and accessories. If anything, Iâ€™m thrilled that H&M has finally chosen a designer I donâ€™t worship (or even like), so that when everything is gone within minutes, I wonâ€™t be left clutching a size ten dress and swearing under my breath at the injustice of it all. What to look for? Iâ€™m guessing this will be a fancy affair, full of eveningwear meant to be worn on the holiday party circuit. Cavalli has even issued this statement/threat concerning his H&M collection: â€œI will add a dash of festivity and dreams.â€ Ooh, festivity and dreams! Thatâ€™s exactly what I want from my knock-offs! Stylesight makes it easy for us to check out Cavalliâ€™s 2007 Fall/Winter show for a peek of the festivity and dreams that might be in store for us come November.
