1. Marc Jacobs
How can the next H&M collab possibly match Kenzo? Tapping Marc Jacobs to dream up next-level clothes is a start.
2. Simone Rocha
Simone Rocha is no stranger to collabs (she offered up a ruffled take on denim for J Brand) and we’d love to see her feminine, pearl-embellished creations reach an even wider audience.
3. Fausto Puglisi
Fans of H&M’s 2011 Versace collab would have lots to get excited about if some embellished, risqué Puglisi designs hit the H&M floor. Just picture the gilded shoes and jewellery.
4. Diane Von Furstenburg
H&MxDVF has a nice ring to it, no? Much like Olivier Rousteing of Balmain, Diane von Furstenburg has the power to summon the likes of Kendall, Gigi and Karlie (see: the DVF Fall 2016 runway) for another collab with serious star power.
Sacai’s Chitose Abe ingeniously mixes techniques and materials for clothes that feel refreshingly off-centre, and with a Nike collab under her belt, she’s proven that her creations can have mass-market appeal. Are you listening, H&M?
6. Acne Studios
Just think of the cool denim and edgy ankle boots that could come out of this Swedish double hit.
7. Miu Miu
We can only imagine the sweet-yet-quirky pieces this collab would produce.
Massimo Giorgetti has been designing his cheery and sometimes-irreverent line MSGM for four years, turning it into a bona fide style fixture. A collab with H&M would bring his playful prints and wild accessories to an eager fan base.
