I can’t help but love Anna Dello Russo. Although her style is totally over the top and unattainable, I have to give her props for her ability to pull anything off – and with confidence. She always looks like she’s having fun which is a rarity in the fashion world!
I was very curious to see her accessories collaboration with H&M so I attended a special preview earlier this week. The H&M headquarters were decked out “Anna style” with specially designed blue boxes featuring an elaborate ADR logo (they remind me of La Duree’s packaging) and fun globe-trotting illustrations of Anna covering paperbags and notebooks.
My top picks from the collection
The 45 piece collection embodies all that is Anna – it’s fun, playful, glamourous and over-the-top. Elements of her personal style can be found everywhere from the abundance of turquoise and coral chunky bracelets to the trolley bag and matching vanity case decorated with Louis XVI style gold motifs. Maria Felix style crocodile and snake necklaces come embellished with crystals (and even appear on a pair of black sunglasses, Schiaparelli style!) My favourites include the vintage-inspired chunky stone earrings and coral and pearl bangles. There is definitely something for everyone, just make sure you line up early on October 4!
