Ever since H&M made their way to India with stores in Delhi and Bangalore, I’ve been waiting for them to announce their plans for a Mumbai outlet. All that finger crossing paid off, because H&M is coming to Mumbai this autumn!
The Swedish brand held a special preview of their Studio A/W 16 line (the one they showed at Paris Fashion Week) yesterday at The Ministry of New.
Here's a sneak peek at what to expect when they launch!
We got a peek at H&M Studio’s AW’16 collection at Ministry of New, just a few months before they open in Mumbai.
Inspired by Spanish folklore for Autumn-Winter, the collection was features fabrics like wool, lace, velvet and shearling. Hourglass silhouettes, prints and embellishments came in shades of black, blue, red and white as well as earthy neutrals.

Whether or not you're buying anything else, there's no resisitng their lingerie.
Key pieces from the collection were wide-leg trousers, cowboy boots, pinstripe suits and my favorites – a velvet wrap dress in midnight blue, a long, sheer dress with a printed lynx emblem and necklaces featuring circular pendants.

Sheer lace, wool and velvet were some of the fabrics used to create the collection.
We also got a glimpse of their A/W 16 kids’ line as well as their new athletic line, which was designed in collaboration with Caitlyn Jenner. If you haven’t already been wearing gym clothes to lounge around in, prepare to do so next season!
There’s a collection for kids too. We just wish it came in adult sizes as well.
Looking forward to the H&M x Caitlyn Jenner collection. And no, it's not just for women!
The Studio collection launches in stores in early September, which, by our calculations, mean that the store launch is less than three months away. Can't wait!
