High street fast-fashion giant, H&M, is out again with yet another one of its designer collaborations. Just fresh off its very successful Balmain merger, the Swedish company has tapped Kenzo’s creative directors, Carol Lim and Humberto Leon, also of Opening Ceremony, to be its next collaborators.

The recently released campaign images, photographed by Oliver Hadlee Pearch, feature tiger prints, paired with some chic coats – one leather with faux pink shearling and the other, an army green parka that could suit any closet.

Isamaya Ffrench, a London-based make-up artist and member of the performance group Theo Adams Company models the former, along with a tiger print top and matching high waisted leggings.


Paris-based musician and performance artist Oko Ebombo models the latter with tiger print jeans, while actually pulling off the socks and flip-flops look.


New Yorkers Amy Sall—a student, activist and founder of SUNU: Journal of African Affairs, Critical Thought + Aesthetics—and trans artist, poet and DJ Juliana Huxtable do Grace Jones justice, getting up close and personal in tiger print tops, leggings and boots.


The collection goes online and hits over 250 H&M stores worldwide on November 3.
