H&M’s Autumn Collection 2013 was shown to an audience in a specially created space within the grounds of the Musée Rodin and also broadcast live at hm.com. The mood of the collection was reflected in the specially constructed venue in the garden of Musée Rodin, decorated like a dream apartment full of the party elegance of ’70s Paris. The catwalk show, which combined tailored shapes with delicate dresses to create a tomboy spirit, gave the audience the chance to see H&M’s fashion in line with the international fashion schedule. The collection will be available in around 200 stores worldwide, as well as online, from September 5, 2013.

“I loved seeing our Autumn Collection on the catwalk at Paris Fashion Week. It brought to life the spirit of the clothes, and how you can mix together different styles to create your own personal look. Key pieces like the wool overcoat, the tails and the sequin dresses are going to give you real attitude this autumn,” says Ann-Sofie Johansson, H&M’s Head of Design.

Created by H&M’s design team, the Autumn Collection is a playful mix of styles that combines dramatic silhouettes with more decorative pieces. Alongside cropped tails and a masculine overcoat are other versatile outerwear pieces, such as a boho jacket, a double-breasted leather jacket or a wide-cut ceremonial jacket. Delicacy and a sense of faded grandeur is found in pieces such as an open-backed sequin dress or an embellished and fringed shoulder piece, while knitwear is key, especially with an intricate cable knit sweater.
