Dress You Up in My Love

Whenever a designer creates a capsule collection for a discount retail chain there is always tons of buzz surrounding the launch. While fashionistas across Manhattan will be making their way to Target's pop-up store to score some Alexander McQueen this weekend, I'm more looking forward to Matthew Williamson's H&M collection...for men! Studded jackets, comfy and colorful zip-up hoodies, and his signature rainbow stripes dominate.

Check out more at NYLONguys

The collection doesn't hit stores until April 23, which gives you plenty of time to decide what you want to purchase for your current boy toy (cough*yourself*cough) as part of his spring wardrobe revamp. If he expresses defiance at sporting something quite so colorful, you should

1) feign shock
2) insist he just doesn't understand fashion and
3) steal the pieces for yourself

Everyone wins!

Thankyou for your coment.
That's also my dilemma - finding an appropriate bag to stud is proving difficult and so i am toying with the idea of sewing together a bag myself.

I'm from Spain and do some DIY projects from time to time.

If you want to have a look, I'm doing military jackets in the style of Coldplay and Balmain:
