Ok, originally, I was not going to do a story on Anna Dello Russo and her collaboration with H&M because it is going to be everywhere today. Everyone will be talking about it but the video above completely won me over! She is so cute and meticulous but still fun and that is something that entirely fascinates me!
I can tell by the way she talks about clothes that she really LOVES what she does. And she loves clothes. She says, “I am like a bibliotech of fashion, a guardian of fashion.” This is easily witnessed by her neatness and organization of her dresser drawers and closet. She calls her pieces a collection not just, ‘these are my clothes.’

I admire the way she takes care of her precious collections. She doesn’t take them for granted where I see socialites spill wine on their $3,000 dress and not even blink an eye. She understands the worth of her closet which I’m guessing if she were to ever hold an auction for every piece, it would be over $50,000,000 in clothing.
Her collection for H&M is exactly what she is known for, outrageous accessories. I always love her ridiculous hats and jewelry because she doesn’t care, she takes the fashion risk because she thinks those ridiculous hats are beautiful. I can definitely appreciate that.
I’m very happy H&M has decided to collaborate with someone with a seemingly pure spirit and spunk! Can’t wait till October 4th when the collection debuts!
