    This collection is probably the biggest one H&M has had since Versace, especially since it was the first collection to be available online. Most of the pieces were beautiful, like the denim jacket with black and white motifs I was able to get before it sold out. Other pieces though, like a big burgundy coat weren’t that snazzy. This collection has something for every taste; denim, wool, cotton, leather, suede.

    I love all the chunky knits… it was really hard to shop online for me. Everything was sold out after I’ve been in a queue for an hour! I was just able to snag the beaded jacket last night though. 🙂 The fabrics are also very nice.

    From what I saw, there are many nice pieces to complement a wardrobe.. There is lots of variety and I like the sparkly pieces. However, as you said, some of them do not look very figure flattering.

    It’s pricey but I like it! I love the pumps in the collection! $200 is still too much for me though.

    I did like some of the pieces the shaggy sweater, the sweater coat/duster and the herringbone shoes and of course the smoking jacket. I liked 1/2 of the collection overall.

    I think this is big for H & M. I liked some of the pieces like the peacock as it could facilitate lots of conversation, but some of the others, I probably wouldn’t have much use for, even for special occasions.

    It’s my fave H&M collaboration so far, and with all the great designers so far, that’s definitely something. It’s wearable and anyone can make it work in his or her own style. Plus, it’s so comfy and stylish, without trying too hard 🙂

    I am a big fan of Isabel Marant since the early 2009 Fall collection. I think she was very generous with the collection and gave the mass public the possibility of owning some of her most relevant pieces.
    The silk ruffled top and the belted tuxedo (Fall 2009), the silver scarf, print flowing trousers and the coolest fringe boots (Spring 2010), the silver/golden jumpers, sequin trousers and capri leather pants (Fall 2010), the little skirt and sport sweater (Spring 2011), the chunky wool sweaters and oversize coats (Fall 2011), the golden pattern dress and the coveted quilted jacket (Spring 2012), the crochet sweaters (Fall 2012). I didn’t get to see the collection, though…Too much confusion… Went there the next day and got the silk ruffled blouse and the necklace (Spring 2013) and I’m in heaven!
    Saw big sizes of some items…(the leather trousers beautiful …)
    Overall, I was very impressed, specially with the generosity… Although these are very “Ready to Wear” clothes, copied to exhaustion, for what I saw, the difference is on the details, subtle tiny details on the cut of the fabrics that make all the difference…
    PS: I don’t own any piece of Isabel Marant (too expensive for me)… Wait, now I do! 🙂

    Isabel Marant was one of my favorite designer collaborations because the collection was effortless, casual, and chic! My favorite items from the collection were the fringe boots, sequin pants, black/white sweater. I think that some of the prices of the items were expensive, like the fringe boots, but you’re paying for the name and quality! I woke up early to shop online wasn’t able to get anything because the site crashed. Hoping to win the gorgeous bracelet! Thanks @reccesionista!

    I like some it, but some it it is rather too ‘wild’ for me as far as patterns go. I dont think just anyone could wear the majority of it. The prices too are a bit much and amost inconsistent. I am not much of a fashion plate though!

    Some of the items are pretty cool, but most of it is not my style.

    There’s a little too much black and white for my taste. I’m a bit over this trend.

    The collection really has something for everybody and every mood, which is awesome!

    loved it lots! just wish it was more affordable…and that they had held the items you managed to get into your cart!

    I had hoped the pieces would be a little simpler. But didn’t matter anyways… was all sold out by the time I got there! 🙂

    I loved the collection but not the prices!

    There were some nice pieces but I’d prefer lower prices!

    I thought the collection had a good variety of pieces. I was impressed by the quality of the few items I’ve seen and touched in person. Just wish it was easier to purchase the items I wanted and the prices to be a little lower.

    I liked it! While I wasn’t a huge fan of the knitwear, she really nailed it on the super soft, slouchy tees. That being said, I agree that the prices were too high on this collab. Especially given that a year from now, the pieces will be easily recognizable as being from H&M. I’d much rather save up for some real Marant.

    The pieces looked gorgeous; since I’m in grad school, I didn’t get a good look in person. I agree with previous comments however, the price-point still seems a bit high.

    This collection was nice for fall/winter but everything online and in stores were gone before I could even try anything on. Bummer…

    A bracelet other that #puravidabracelets that catches my eye. The
    Semi-Precious Stone Bracelet from Isabel Marant H&M Line is one I would wear always with everything beside my only other favorites. The hues of blue are stunning and as aka ways a color that takes me to the sea.

    I liked most of the collection but could not see myself in some of the pieces. Overall, I felt that it was a bit pricey for H&M.

    I loved this collaboration and blogged about it prior to its release! The knit blazer and Oxblood leather pants were among my favorite items!
