Not even the prospect of having swine flu (I’ve got every symptom on the list) could stop me from leaving my death bed and going to H&M to stock up on the special Sonia Rykiel range they’ve launched today. Risking life and health (mine and others – although I took my germ gel, must have accessory of the moment) was well worth it, as this range is easily my favourite H&M designer collaboration so far.
I could have easily bought the whole lot, from pink lingerie sets to a black velvet bow dress. Sadly, the prettiest underwear only went up to a c-cup, which, I found rather frustrating. In the end I settled for black velvet pyjama pants and a matching jacket, perfect for lazy Sunday afternoons and so very 40s Hollywood. I also bought a light pink, floor-length silk dress, which can be dressed up – 30s hair, deep red lips- or down – a bit of black leather- as I feel like.
I can’t wait for the spring collection, which will feature Rykiel’s trademark kooky knitwear.
