What can we expect for the future ?

H&M with Beyonce ? Everyone is talking about this rumour since she tweeted something about being shooting for the brand and erased it minutes later. Teasing or bad buzz?

H&M should go with TV star. Since Sex and the City we see a rise of very fashionable tv show such as Gossip Girl crew, New Girl, Glee, etc.

H&M should collaborate with high couture brand : Givenchy ? Gucci ? Mc Queen?!?!!! (omg could you believe!?!)…..Chanel !!!???! (Okay I am dreaming).

I would bet on Victoria Beckham since her hubby is already in a contract and she’s a newly successful designer.

H&M with fashion bloggers ? H&M with movie stars?  H&M exposition in a museum ?

The possibilities are endless and they sure need to exploit new opportunities.
