Here's two things we never thought would go together: H&M and luxury.
According to Sweden's Dagens Industri the fast fashion chain is working on more high-end line than their current COS or Collection of Style.
When asked if there was any truth to the report an H&M spokeswoman responded with neither a confirmation or a denial, only:
"We are constantly looking at new ideas; it’s a natural part of our work. However, there is nothing new that we can [talk] about for the moment."
In that case, to be continued…

If you were hoping for a Dolce & Gabbana for H&M or Target collaboration, stop snorting that "hopium" because it ain't happenin'!
In an interview with Women's Wear Daily, Domenico Dolce turned up his nose at the very idea of it:
"Recently, it’s all “trusciume” [in Sicilian, cheap, trashy] — there’s no quality, these fast-fashion companies churning out looks. People thought it was cool, but it’s cheap. You can’t expect quality at 20 euros [$27]. It’s like good codfish at 5 euros [$6.70] — how can it be?"
Hey, they may be cheap but they also sell like hotcakes!

Remember when Karl Lagerfeld abruptly canceled his runway show to focus on a lower priced line?
According to industry sources, that lower priced line is for Macy's!!!
But before you get your non-couture panties in a wad, you're going to have to wait a couple of months.
Lagerfeld's first affordable ready-to-wear collection, that includes everything from jeans to gowns, will hit shelves for the fall of next year.
We have a feeling once it debuts it'll be Karl Khaos on 34th Street.

Great news shoppers!
Pricing at fast fashion chains like H&M and Forever 21 have hit new lows.
How's that possible?
Retailers are getting more efficient when it comes to production, which means consumers can get the latest trends for cheap.
Pretty cool, especially with the holiday season right around the corner!
