H&M launches Met Gala-inspired looks on webstore

May 8, 2018

H&M was a rare high street name with a powerful powerful presence on the red carpet at the Met Gala on Monday evening. And the company got maximum value out of the creations it made for the night, marketing an exclusive capsule of four red carpet looks “inspired by celestial glamour” from Tuesday.


The retailer’s Gala Collection is now available online at hm.com worldwide, as well as at its 5th avenue flagship store in New York, and features dresses retailing from €79.99 up to €499. 

They share the gold and silver that were key features of the red carpet pieces.

And as for those red carpet looks, the company said it was aiming for “ethereal glamour and serene creation” as the themes of its one-off pieces inspired by the Met’s Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination exhibition. 

Actress Lili Reinhart wore a silver dress inspired by armour, described by the retailer as “a cloud-like drape of silver lamé organza held by a silver corset, creating a dramatic contrast between control and flow.” 

Actress and model Olivia Munn wore a sleeveless chainmail dress designed to “drape on the body like liquid, while model and activist Alek Wek wore a draped dress that took inspiration from mosaics. It had a long train (a big trend on the night) of silver and jewel tones created from a pattern of beading and sequins.

Actress Kiersey Clemons wore a beaded dress like a net of gold and pearl, while model and actress Jasmine Sanders wore a voluminous gown of gold metal lamé tapping into another of the evening’s major trends, a high slit.

And model and influencer Luka Sabbat wore an extravagant robe hand-embroidered with sequins with tuxedo trousers made from sustainable organic silk, tencel and wool.
