I just can’t believe it! It feels like yesterday that we were in the desert dancing to Major Lazer with the H&M Global Squad team at our very first Coachella. This year we are doing it all over again and we couldn’t be more excited! The H&M Coachella collection this year couldn’t be more different from the last. If last year was all about boho chic this year it’s the future. I think we are all ready and excited for this change and a departure from the ever predictable fringe. I’m talking lots of metallics, pastels, mixed textures and The Atomics! This year we are paying a major homage to the 90s so the chokers WILL be coming out in full swing and H&M has got this one covered! The full collection is coming out in Canada today so make sure to snag your favorites before it’s too late. The great thing about this selection is that it will not only carry you through festival season but these will be hands down your favourite pieces throughout all of summer.
Even though fashion is always the main reason I do anything (duh!), it is a music festival after all. The marriage of the two could not be more perfect than it is during Coachella. My top picks for this years’ performances are Capital Cities, Crystal Castles, Lorde, New Order, Justice and the most exciting of all Roisin Murphy. For those who need a refresher think the music duo Moloko from the 90’s, sing it back, the time is now & forever more, who later went off on a solo career making more amazing music like you know me better, overpowered and dear miami. This is basically my time growing up in Europe. Check the bottom of the post for a quick playlist.
There are still two weeks before we head off to the desert and there are a few adventures along the way still, but I can not tell you how much I miss the sun. Travelling in Europe this spring has been a bit of a challenge (more on that later), but it really does make you appreciate the dry desert heat (and the Coachella VIP eating area!). Either way it’s full steam ahead on festival season and I can’t wait to see all the looks! xoxo
