If you head to your nearest H&M this weekend--and trust us, you should--expected to face a madhouse scene, and to leave with a superfly new wardrobe. Lovers of Commes des Garçons’ unadulterated avant garde flair can now find the Japanese-designed collection at H&M. The low-priced collaboration, which includes clothing for men, women and children, was formally launched yesterday, which caused long lines to form outside of H&Ms in Tokyo days in advance. Get there fast while sizes are still available!
Need some shimmering jewelry to dress up your holiday look but without the unreasonably high cost? Check out IMAN’s Global Chic Collection at hsn.com, where most items are under $100! You'll find luxe goodies like a silver pave ring, an envelope clutch in varied animal prints and a faux pearl necklace with jeweled clasp.
Bargains abound on eluxury.com, where sale items are now marked down an additional 20 percent off and will ship for free. We found tons of items in women’s apparel and shoes, like Derek Lam’s lace-up peep toe booties for $299 down from $750. There are also handbags from Versace, Roberto Cavalli and John Paul Gauthier.
If you happen to be in L.A. and have a hankering for high quality matte jersey, silk and wool dresses, tops and outerwear, make sure you check out Elaine Kim’s Open Studio Day on Friday, Nov. 14, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. (5971 West Third Street). She’ll be offering deep markdowns on her fall and winter 2008 collection (elainekim.com) as well as sneak peeks of spring 2009. And if you’re lucky, maybe the designer will even help you find that perfect dress to wear for the holidays.
