  1. Battle of collabs: Anna dello Russo vs JW Anderson

    Did you go crazy in the JW Anderson x Topshop drop? We were up early to make sure we got the pieces we wanted online (they have just arrived – yay!) and there were queues at Topshop’s Oxford Circus store. But there’s another designer/high street collection around the corner too and they’re like chalk and cheese. We reckon you’ll be picking a team!

    First up, JW Anderson for Topshop. You’ll have to indulge me here.  I’m crazy for all of Anderson’s designs from his whimsical prints, powerful paisley, effortlessly chic knitwear and grungy brilliance; made especially wonderful thanks to his sense of humour. If you regularly use our app/website and drop in on our blog (and I do hope you do,) you’ll know that team Snap Fashion is crazy for animals on clothing.

    So we are gaga for the collection’s tortoise print separates, cute kitty trousers and I’m in ecstasy over the sporty separates- the perfect varsity-style jacket, quilted paisley tops, humorous jumpers and the little black skirts, which will make the work wardrobe that much cosier and easier this winter and will layer-up a treat. And then there’s the signature tartan and the duffel bag…which might play a part in enticing me back to the gym.

    Here’s some of our top picks (trust me, it was like choosing a favourite child).

    Batty for this collection

    Paisley top £59

    JWAndersonjacket £129

    JW Anderson square print trousers £49.99

    And now for something completely different. Anna dello Russo’s opulent collection lands in H&M on 4 October and is all about maximalism, gold, bright enamel, gold, turquoise, gold, baroque, more gold…got it? It’s one for glamour girls who like to stand out and love the Vogue Japan editor’s inimitable style. I love the chandelier earrings and statement emerald necklace (that I would wear with a shabby Breton tee) but am leaving the rest to the glossy possie…especially the glam suitcase!

    More is more

    This isn’t a collection for wallflowers

    Animal bangles £25ish+

  2. Anna Dello Russo x H&M

    Collaboration alert! *designer klaxon*

    Decidedly OTT Vogue personality Anna Dello Russo is the next person to collaborate with H&M. The collection will feature “over-the-top” accessories that will hit selected stores in October.

    “I am excited by this collaboration: this is the first time H&M have involved a Fashion Director in a special project. This is the sign of an important evolution in fashion, and I am both thrilled and humbled to be the one chosen to lead it,” she says.

    Lashings of turquoise and gold feature heavily (if exclusively) from the pics we have seen so far and there are shoes, bags, glasses and obviously a heap of jewellery. The question is, are you excited? We’re not completely sold on this one (I am a Breton and sneakers girl and bling does not feature heavily in my wardrobe) but it is interesting that H&M has picked a super stylist instead of design to work with. Only time will tell if there are queues round the block for this collaboration.

    Anna says: “As a stylist I know accessorization is essential. It is the personal touch to any outfit. With these pieces everybody can have fun, turning an ordinary day into a fantastic fashion day.” We reckon it might be a bit much for a supermarket shop though!

  3. Celebrity trend: Wear S/S12 NOW!

    …No we don’t mean wearing flip flops in winter (but shorts are fine!)

    We were glued to the S/S12 fashion weeks and got incredibly excited at the prospect of floral prints, pretty pastels, crisp white dresses, seaside and underwater-inspired collections and so much more…but then got back to the business of dressing for this season.

    But now so on planet celebrity where it counts to be ‘first’ (and Hollywood is very probably quite a lot hotter than London!)

    We got so excited when we spotted Sienna Miller wearing Matthew Williamson just a couple of weeks after London Fashion Week but The Telegraph has surpassed us by spotting plenty more famous folks wearing next season’s collections…Burberry, Jil Sander, Prabal Gurung, Jason Wu, Calvin Klein, Mary Katrantzou and Christian Dior.

  4. Get the look: Miu Miu glitter court look-a-likes from £40

    Behold the new Miu Miu glitter court – close cousin to the equally beautiful glitter bootie beloved by celebrities and fashion editors alike – (Alexa Chung and Anna Dello Russo are fans).

    Slightly different shape but these gold glitter courts are just £40 from Miss Selfridge!

    The good news is that for those without a Miu Miu budget, the high street is choc full of glittery look-a-likes. Perfect for party season they come in a variety of colours and we predict we’ll be seeing even more of these!

  5. Anna Dello Russo snapped in Versace for H&M before it hits shops

    We got mixed reviews from you about Versace’s collection for H&M. It is very OTT (as you might expect) but I’d still like a little piece to mix up and dress down in my wardrobe – despite the fact I’m the opposite of the Versace girl (always slightly scruffy, definitely pasty, a hater of clingy fabrics and persistent wearer of plimsolls.)

    Still, it was interesting to see Vogue Italy’s legendary editor, Anna Dello Russo out and about in the collection about 2 months before the scrums start in store. She’s famous for wearing head-to-toe looks off the catwalk so this is extremely Versace (and far too intimidating for a scruff like me!) This look is SO Anna and SO Versace, but personally I’m not too keen.

    However, the adverts and anticipation of seeing such an iconic brand join up with H&M is exciting! What do you make of it?

    The adverts in all high end November magazines!

    We prefer this - the leggings at least!

  6. PFW: Chanel: Underwater odyssey

    As we near the end of Paris Fashion Week (and indeed New York, London and Milan) there are some shows that you know you’ll remember in years to come…and this SS12 Chanel show is one of them!

    The theme: Underwater (like Versace) but with iridescent tweed coats, translucent layering, metallic booties, shell-shaped bags, frothy hemlines like waves breaking on a beach (might be getting swept up in the romance of it all…) faux pearl piercings, wet-look cloth and all with that beautiful Chanel elegance and simplicity. If I could have everything in one collection this. would. be. it!

    Florence Welch provided a live soundtrack -  v Ariel from The Little Mermaid!

    We won’t wax lyrical but have carefully (beach) combed Twitter for so many pics. Enjoy x

    Setting the scene: The Grand Palais is transformed!

    Coats to die for!

    The show's first look and model Freja - we LOVE the silver boots!

    Most perfect frothy hem and so Chanel

    Sparkly tweed (my favourite look - maybe!)

    Dig out those pearl earrings! (apparently these are fake piercings - phew!)

    A twist on the classic white tweed and Chanel signature quilting

    The PERFECT Spring work outfit

    Backstage (oh we love the middle dress!)

    Grey and black pieces in the finale

    A closer look

    And for the white stuff!

    Pics pulled from various fashion eds and frow people in the heat of the moment- happy to credit (but we lost track- too excited – sorry!) P.S. We’re so so jealous of the make-up goodie bags!

    P.S. check out Anna dello Russo's amazing frow look
