Barbie Ferreira was one of the first celebrities to get their hands on H & M’s royal collaboration with Simone Rocha. So we’re not at all surprised that the brand tapped the brand euphoria star models its latest sustainable collection from a project called Innovation Stories. Barbie worked with her two year old stylist Chris Horan (who was introduced by a mutual client and Barbie’s friend Rowan Blanchard) to pick her favorites from the line and curate an outfit that represented her edgy tastes. We spoke to Horan about their exciting collaboration process.
“It’s nice to be able to incorporate these pieces into a look that is generally available and that people can recreate.”
“She has great ideas and what she likes is always evolving – and any project is fun to do. We usually go through collections and send each other pictures back and forth. Sometimes Barbie already has a makeup and hair mood and we’ll make one look backwards too. “Horan went on to explain why these neon sandals, which contain a flashy vegan leather label on the heel, were a given:” Color is probably one of the first things we look at, followed by the Heel Height! These acid yellow sandals are so much fun and they have a pretty reasonable height – not to mention the shape of the heel which feels unique and special. We usually try to avoid crazy stilettos when we can! “He said of the shoes that retail for $ 129.
Although the shoes are electrifying enough to be the first thing you notice, Horan drew our attention to the white, deconstructed, double-waisted denim that he believes would be attractive to Ferreira as well euphoria Character, cat. “”[Kat] could only mate [the jeans] with a latex top or something shiny. I think the magic in Kat is that Barbie brings a lot of herself into her look. “In this ensemble, Chris and Barbie balanced the futuristic atmosphere of the shoes and jeans with a light mint blouse.
All three items come from the “Science Story” drop by H & M, which offers us a range of garments from “Fabrics of the Future”, including Desserto®, a vegetable-based leather from organically grown cactus, and EVO by Fulgar® , a bio-based yarn made from castor oil, a renewable raw material. The pieces look just like the streetwear we’re used to at H&M, but knowing that they’re made with the environment in mind and in some really nice pastel and neon bursts only makes them more attractive.
The fact that the clothes look elevated but start at an affordable price is of course refreshing. “It’s nice to be able to incorporate these pieces into a look that is generally available and that people can recreate,” said Chris. This is just the first of several reasons Chris and Barbie love working with H&M. “It’s extremely important to work with brands that include size. Lots of designers offer to make things, but size inclusion should apply to everyone, not just celebrities. We try to support brands that size so far as possible, “he said.
