Anna Dello Russo for H&M - Goldtastic!

It's a mere 2 days until you can get your hands on the new range by Anna Dello Russo for H&M. The editor-at-large and creative consultant for Vogue Japan has created an eye-catching (to say the least) range of accessories to inject colour and life into this winter's wardrobe. The range includes jewellery, sunglasses, bags, and one hell of a hat (see it all here).

If you haven't yet watched the video for this, prepare to be blown away...

YOU NEED A FASHION SHOW (warning it will be stuck in your head, and you will find yourself humming it in a few days whilst walking round the supermarket. I do not take blame for the weird looks you will get) - the anthem to the film to accompany this collaboration pumps it's way thorough the Della Russo's top ten rules of fashion.
My favourite rule has to be....

Somebody wearing your same outfit? Wonderful, you did the right choice

The video sets the tone perfectly - positive vibes are exploding out of it, instantly brightening up your day. I can imagine just taking the clutch into your hand, adorning yourself with the charm necklace, or slipping your feet into the golden boots will put you in just the right mood to dance off down the street. Imagining yourself in your very own trashy music/fashion video, and now doubt wishing that a giant golden boot / giant golden scissors / oversized bracelet seat would appear just round the corner, to complete the look. Just me? I think not...

The colours are well selected - bright without looking cheap. A hue hitting the exact tones we normally only see in real turquoise stone, an intense sunset orange, rich emerald, and gold upon gold upon gold.
The jewellery is over the top, yes, I don't deny that, but just looking at it makes me want to put it all on at once so I am positively dripping with golden links and polished gems.

Whatever your personal opinion on this, ghastly or glorious, you can not deny that Dello Russo has created something exciting to brighten up these drizzly October days (if you're in the UK).

Personally, I will be taking on the opinion 'more is more' when it comes to this range. And when I strut down the street I will be the epitome of Anna Della Russo line 'nothing succeeds like excess.'
