PRINTS CHARMING: Hennes & Mauritz AB is linking up with London-based fashion brand Erdem for its next designer collaboration, and has tapped director Baz Luhrmann to create the visuals for the campaign.
The capsule line, including designer Erdem Moralioglu’s first-ever collection for men, will go on sale on Nov. 2 in selected H&M stores as well as online, the Swedish high street giant said in a statement on Thursday.
Known for its use of experimental textiles, vibrant prints and detailed craftsmanship, Erdem has a devoted celebrity following, with fans including the Duchess of Cambridge, Keira Knightley, Alexa Chung and Samantha Cameron.
For his women’s and men’s designs for the fast-fashion chain, Moralioglu will reinterpret themes from some of his most celebrated collections, incorporating historical references and personal narratives, H&M said.

These are special pieces you will want to wear forever,” said Ann-Sofie Johansson, creative advisor at H&M.
