The Weeknd for H&M’s “Spring Icons”

The Weeknd is definitely on a roll this year! New album, new tour, new videos and most recently a new endorsement deal with H&M. Though The Weeknd doesn’t believe in icons, H&M does and clearly considers him and his influence an iconic one. The collaboration includes pieces that are representative of The Weeknd’s style and how men dress today. Here’s what he had to say about his selections: “When I chose the pieces for Spring Icons Selected by the Weeknd, I was thinking about the way men dress today … It’s about finding the right balance between sharp and casual, with all the details that count.” The collection will be available March 2nd. Until then H&M released this teaser video to hold you over while you wait. Here’s a peak at the selections:

P.O.W.: Can you stand the rain?…Hunter’s Original Clear Smock

I have been screaming that I am so over Summer…and trust me I am over and done with all of it. My edges will now live a longer life with no heat or sweating and I won’t feel like I have to take 20 showers in one day. When I seen this week’s Fall forecast full of rain and 60 no more than 70 degree weather I was elated. Then I realized taking care of business that requires me to get in and out of the car it is not exactly what I bargained for. Of course, with 3 more days of rain left I started my search for the perfect reasonable raincoat, so I can stand the rest of this rain. Quality was most important  for me because a lot of reasonable raincoats ring cheap, cheap, cheap. After a short search I found style, quality, reasonable cost in one raincoat… Hunter’s Original Clear Smock. These raincoats are priced from $162 – $230. See available colors below.

P.O.W.: Life Is Gucci

I’m back like I never left and the chill is getting real, real! Summer is almost over, cuffin’ season is in full swing, Netflix and chill requests are at an all time high and temps are hitting Fall lows. With all this in mind, mother nature has forced me to think fashionably warm thoughts. Then I bumped into this beauty. It’s aesthetics took me back to the 80s fashion nostalgia with a boxy sweatshirt fit, Gucci’s signature red and green web stripe and the ‘Life is Gucci’ graffiti inspired slogan. This stylish cotton/neoprene sweatshirt can be purchased at Selfridges and Co. The ‘Life is Gucci’ sweatshirt is available for purchase here. I’m clearly a words kind of girl, so the slogan was the initial draw for me. If you know me you know that my summer has been filled with leaving my job, a break up, hanging out, making new business connections, tons of laughing and the new boo. Summer 16′ has been quite a ride and with all of it’s ups and downs I can still tell the story …
