Designer collaborations with low-cost retailers always create a running-of-the-bulls-style stampede to the store. But, we've got the inside scoop on Roberto Cavalli's line for H&M and we'll help you design your plan of attack for the November 8th shopping blitz.
H&M's website features photos of the full line from underwear to suits. Surprisingly enough, the men's line lacks the Cavalli's usual love for animal prints and bold colors--he reserved those embellishments for the women's items.
Here's what to buy, and what to leave behind for the hordes:
Trench Coat ($198): Buy - It's a fall staple and Cavalli's tailoring is sure to please.
Wool Suit ($299): Buy - A well-tailored Italian suit is tough to come by at this price
Jeans ($69.90): Buy - Cavalli is well known for his excellent fit.
Brown Leather Jacket ($249): Buy/Pass -- I'm not a big fan of leather jackets but the motorcycle styling of this one is nice. At the price, don't expect super-high quality leather.
Waistcoat ($49.90): Pass - I'm not a fan of the vest trend.
Cardigan ($79.90): Pass - Looks too much like a bathrobe.
Black Button Down Shirt ($59.90): Pass - Only pass if it's sheer (it looks sheer in the photo), lest you look like something the 90s club scene coughed up.
T-shirts & Underwear: Pass.
