With this recession it might be hard for consumers to be able to afford high-end labels and be in good financial standings. H&M is known for their fast fashion. With the collaboration with Matthew Williamson Consumers can still have that high-end designer look at an affordable price. I think it is amazing how a lot of high fashion designers are making more collaborations with the normal everyday girl retail stores. It's almost like you get the best of both worlds. Not only is this a smart move financially but it will make more room for other high-end designers to make collaborations with other fast fashion retail stores. Honestly no one shops the same anymore. The same consumers that usually shop at Yves Saint Laurent will now be buy the Matthew Williamson collection at H&M. Times are changing and the new trend is too mix those high-end labels with an affordable piece for that chic recession look.
The collection will arrive in H&M stores on April 23, 2009. Prices start from $25 for a pendant necklace to $ 395 for a beaded maxidress. Considering that merchandise from his top collection retails from $995 this H&M collaboration is a steal.
