Despite outrage earlier this year over H&M allegedly dumping clothing, the brand has been cleaning up their act with some good deals. On May 20th, H&M is launching a “Fashion Against Aids” collection with 25 percent of sales to be donated to youth HIV/AIDS awareness projects. The collection, as befitting it’s namesake, is rather somber looking. Don’t expect bright colors, or prints like those in the Garden Collection. The black and white print dresses above are an example of the collection’s rather austere look. There is a lot of denim, black and white, and some animal prints. Note that the collection will be part of the Divided line, so it will be junior sized. The collection will be for both girls and boys and offers clothes and accessories plus tents and sleeping bags. As with all of H&M’s house brand collections, the prices are reasonable. For women, there are maxi dresses, bohemian looking wrap blouses, and even a short sequined jacket. I’ll definitely have to give it a look when it arrives in stores. I’ll be anxious to see if the fashions are as good as the cause they support.
