H&M + SWEDISH HASBEENS = CLOGS
Just when you thought it was safe to slip off your clogs…
On the back of its super-successful collaboration with Lanvin, UK born H&M has announced their latest alliance with cult label Swedish Hasbeens.
Swedish Hasbeens launched 3 styles created especially for H&M, no surprises, they are of the wooden-soled variety.
The gladiator-style wedge, with three buckle ankle straps and a progression of straps going over the foot, all sitting on a wooden wedge, comes in cream, tan on a pale wooden wedge and black on a black base.
The second model is a chunky heeled sandal with one ankle strap and comes in cream and red on a pale wooden base. The third style is a peep-toe slip-on wedge on a wooden sole, with snake-effect leather laced on top.
For my part, I’m not an enormous fan of the clog but I do love that H&M are collaborating with smaller boutique labels.
The collection hits stores April 20th & will range from £34.99 – £39.99.
Any thoughts? Are we loving or hating the clog hanging on for a little longer?
