The famed designer Isabel Marant began designing clothes when I was stylish in diapers… And before I even graduated from high school, she had launched her first ready to wear collection.
Her collections, which can best be described as playful and eclectic, have always been missing one thing:
And although some of her past pieces for women have been masculine in their completion, the size range has been too small for me to even attempt to own a piece of Marant.
But like myself, H&M has also been following the designer, and have also been longing for her to design a collection for men.
And tomorrow that day will happen, as they launch the very first compact men’s collection from the very talented Isabel Marant!
The men’s collection, which will include tailored outerwear, chunky knits, leather biker pants, tie-dye and denim will be just as ‘individual’ as the women’s collection which will also hit the shelves tomorrow.
But it wont last long!
The collection is very limited and will be only available at 7 locations in Canada!
Toronto at Eaton Centre, H&M 13-15 Bloor Street West and Yorkdale Shopping Centre.
Montreal at H&M 1100 Ste.Catherine (at Peel) and Rockland Shopping Centre.
Calgary at CORE/TD Square.
and Vancouver at Pacific Centre.
Some of the stores will open prior to regular posted opening times. (Call your local store for details!)
But if you’re living in Calgary, here’s what you need to know:
The CORE H&M will open early for the event at 8:00 a.m. Line-ups for these events typically begin forming well in advance, so it is recommended to arrive before opening.
The CORE will be open at 5:30 a.m. and a line up area will be prepared for those wishing to line up. Guests will be welcomed into the store in small groups on a first come, first serve basis.
So if you’re a fan like me, I’ll see you there bright and early!
Oh how I have longed to own a piece from Marant and now I will have my chance!
