Trends at H&M for Spring 2010

The design team offer a diverse mix for H&M's spring collection. Ethnic influences from all over the world, old Hollywood fashion classics and college styles. Sharp silhouettes boast angular lines with an 80's influence and in contrast there is soft feminine draping. Fabrics have new blends, structures and surfaces.

"There are so many must have pieces within this collection, from classics that have been revamped and updated to ethnic inspired looks that create a strong global look. You will also see inspiration from both art and nature which make up the most enchanting prints", says H&M's head of design Ann-Sofie Johansson.

Ladies
Modern urban looks includes cool white suits and feminine draped dresses that give both softness and strength. Jumpsuits are softer in slippery silks and loose harem pants in luxurious gold lame add dramatic glamour. Romantic vintage style dresses and artist's style tunics offer a preppy and retro 'chic housewife' look. Global inspiration comes in the form of embroideries, tunic and kaftan styles and spicy colour palettes
