H&M is up next with a collaborative designer collection.
With Eloquii launching their Jason Wu collection on November 1st (next week!), we thought we couldn’t get even more excited until we learned that H&M’s partnership with Moschino MAY include plus sizes.
When Jeremy Scott, the Creative Director of the the iconic Italian brand, announced the collaboration back in April at Coachella via an Instagram live call with supermodel Gigi Hadid, it was major news for fashion lovers. However, no mention of plus sizes was made at that time.
Speculations have now started with the launch of the lookbook, where plus size model Barbie Ferreira is shown in some pieces. Could this mean that this will be an attempt at a “size inclusive” collection for H&M? They have now included a size 4XL in their assortment with 73 out of 300 items available in that size.

Scott said of the collection:
“Like all my collections, it’s humor meets haute couture meets the street. That’s been a hallmark of my work for Moschino, and I want to continue to explore that with this collection. For fans of the brand, it should feel a little like a greatest hits collection, but I promise it will still be new, still feel fresh, even though we include some winks, some hints from the past.”
Scott describes the MOSCHINO [tv] H&M collection like “a party, celebrating the fun, the pop, the creativity and the energy of the people and the collection“.
I guess we’ll have to wait until November 8th when the collection drops to see if plus sizes are included. Ferreira is a size 12 so she might be wearing pieces from the collection in straight sizes. We do have our fingers crossed as this would be a major money maker for H&M and a fashion treat for plus size fashionistas this holiday season.
If the MOSCHINO [tv] H&M collection included plus sizes, would you buy some pieces? Follow us on social media @plusmodelmag and let us know.
