H&M snood


.: ermm excuse the little fleshing :.

look what i found at h&m! it's the accessory of the season, the snood. i admit, i've not heard of a snood prior to this season, and how did i live without it! it's the perfect fuss free and practical piece of accessory. don't need to think about how to tie a scarf anymore.

the black cable knit snood retails for £7.99, and i don't know what possessed me: i walked away from it!

let's admit it: h&m's collections are often inspired by what's hot and in season from the runways of the fashion power houses. the cable knit snood is heavily inspired by the ones as seen on the runway of burberry prorsum fall winter 2009. the ones from burberry are made of cashmere and retails for £175.

i guessed i walked away from the h&m snood as it's still rather warm in london, the wool makes me itch and it didn't pack as much volume like the ones from burberry prorsum. but £7.99 is still a steal. it's the credit crunch afterall, let me mull over it.

  2. love it. i should be picking one up tomorrow or friday. I am hoping the H&M one keeps me from buying the Burberry one...everyone at the Burberry store knows I want one.

  5. Man I want a snood. Looks like the kind of get up Jamie Hince is wearing in the video for Last Day of Magic.

  14. Hey man. Love your blog, just discovered it today, and I am already a fan.

    About the snood...love it, and you might not know that last year and the year before h&m already had snoods on their collection, so it's not a new item to them :)
