I doubt it'll be someone like Wang. Jimmy Choo did well in terms of accesories, but the clothing sat in store for a long time before being seriously reduced. My guess is they're going to go for a dead cert, a massive name to ensure it creates the biggest buzz and sells really well.
With Sonia Rykiel being the last one, I think perhaps it could be an American or British designer... who knows though! I think it wont be long before we see JPG join the H&M wagon..
JPG would be awesome- lots of stripes!
Concerning American designers: hopefully not Michael Kors
could be DVF or Carolina Herrera though, I can imagine colourful wrap dresses hitting it big time (not my cup of tea though either...)
oh well, being a fw collection, it's rather not summery dresses
you are as gorgeous as ever

I've said DVF for quite some time. I can imagine the H&M versions of the wrap dresses flying out! But I think she has too much of her own lower price point ranges to do it... although who knows. Matthew Williamson did it, and he has a range at Debenhams here as well?!
As I said, Matthew Williamson had for years, and still had a collection with Debenhams, and yet still did the H&M range. I don't think that really means anything that they're doing elsewhere. Stella did H&M followed by Target Australia.
I'd love it to be a cool label like Wang, but I just don't think it will be. I think it'll be a much more established brand who'll do it. Interesting all the same though. H&M have always been the best when it comes to using designers I feel.
I always get soo excited about collab but like some of you actually did not buy anything yet. Each year is the same - excitement, waiting, seeing collection on a site - first "em oh no", seeing in a store - second "em oh no", walking from a store with empty hand, waiting for next year XD
She was interviewed in London by Style magazine and asked if she would ever consider doing a H&M collection, and she said yes. And that she had been asked, but it needed time to be developed, as she didn't want to just do a cheaper version of the Prada line.
So that's a possibility.
We very nearly had Versace for H&M, but Donatella backed out. Apparently she felt it wasn't right to do that to a brand her brother had built, when he might not have wanted to do anything like that..
I hadn't thought of Missoni, but that's a good guess, as they've been badly affected by the recession, so they could totally be going for a H&M collaboration
Of course Isabel Marant or Vanessa Bruno would be awesome, but those are definitely "too cool" for H&M right now. They would get nothing out of such a collab (especially Marant who still thinks she's all exclusive in spite of Miley Cyrus wearing her colthes to every Disney event).
And OMG, Prada? Now that would be something!
