Summer trends and collections are coming thick and fast right now. Not too long ago H&M released its summery Season of Sun collection.
Without resting on their laurels, the brand has now launched a follow up H&M For Water collection. Five items are up for grabs; a patterned shirt and swim shorts, a pair of woven shorts, sunglasses and a pair of flip-flops.
And because H&M are a friendly bunch, they are donating 25% of their sales to projects that support sustainable water resources for people and the environment.
Let’s start with the shirt. A fetching Hawaiian tree print made from 100% organic cotton. It’s short-sleeved and comes in beige. Rather than having a baggy Miami gangster-type look, this Hawaiian shirt fits quite tightly around the body for a neat but casual aesthetic.
This shirt would match well with the dark blue woven shorts, which are priced at £24.99. These have side pockets and welt pockets at the back, a hook and eye fastening at the front and sewn in turn ups at the hems.
Then there’s the swimshorts. Some of us out there, including myself, wouldn’t be brave enough to sport something that looks not unlike my nan’s curtains. It does push the boundary of tasteful prints – and prints for the sake of being prints. However if floral patterns are your thing, there’s no denying you could pull this look off and make us boring swimshort wearers look even more square. These will cost you just £19.99.
To round up this small capsule collection, there are a pair of tinted sunglasses (with plastic frames) and a pair of Hawaiian print flip-flops to match your shirt, both going for £9.99.
