Swedish retail giant H&M has teamed up with Lebanese womenswear designer Sandra Mansour on a range of ruffled dresses, tailored trousers and eye-catching accessories for its first-ever collaboration with an Arab designer.
The collection, titled “Fleur du Soleil,” is set to hit shelves in select H&M stores as well as online on August 6.
“As a woman, I am proud. As a Lebanese, I am proud. As a designer, I am also very proud. I’m proud to present to you the Fleur Du Soleil collection, and my wonderful journey collaborating with H&M,” wrote the Beirut-based designer on Instagram of the collaboration.
“I hope all of you enjoy it as much as I, and the entire Sandra Mansour x H&M teams enjoyed making it. This is a project like no other for me. One filled with so much heart and dedication,” she added.
H&M is known for its designer collaborations. Mansour follows in the footsteps of a long list of high-profile designer collaborators from the late Karl Lagerfeld in 2004 to Olivier Rousteing in 2015 and Humberto Leon and Carol Lim of Kenzo in 2016.
