Is it spring yet? Sonia Rykiel pour H&M sent out a behind-the-scenes video showing the upcoming collection of candy-colored knits and a metric ton of stripes in colors bright and sunny enough to make us say, "Hell yeah we want to wear striped dresses with striped pants and ride a bicycle outside!" even though it's January. The video also doles out some information about the collection. There will be shoes and hats, and a lot of colorful plastic and rhinestone jewelry, including a set of thick plastic bangles that make it look like the sweater stripes continue down your arm. Because it's a spring collection, it's made of thin, 100% wool and cotton knits. There will also be versions for little girls.
