Williamsburg, the hub of indie rock, burgeoning art communities and alternative lifestyles, was the city of choice for H&M’s summer collections debut. In accordance to the spirit of the season, they decided to bring some summer sizzle into the city with a camp-themed event, complete with custom flower crowns and bracelets, safari-inspired pieces and even a postcard-writing booth (for the loved ones holding down the fort in civilian life)!

This VIP exclusive shindig was curated and co-hosted by none other than New York’s crimson-haired street style darling Taylor Tomasi Hill. Former creative director of Moda Operandi, Hill is not only known for her razor-sharp curatorial skills in fashion, but has in more recent times, gained a reputation for floral arranging as well. Her stunning creations, courtesy of new venture TTH blooms, gracefully decorated the crowns and wrists of all the lucky guests. Get a sneak peek into one of H&M’s first summer parties in this exclusive video clip (and insider snapshots) below:

The evening opened with musical entertainment from Synthpop trio LOLAWOLF and an appearance by the multi-talented Zoe Kravitz (daughter of Lenny Kravitz). The collaborative brand also had the privilege of partnering with clean water advocate Riverkeeper for the event, keeping clean water flowing – inside and outside – of our local campgrounds!


Café de La Esquina in Brooklyn was the gathering place for Thursday’s event.

H&M’s summer collection, which includes a new campaign with Ashley Benson of Pretty Little Liars, is full of youthful, feminine and edgy pieces. The menswear line incorporates timeless, patriotic weekend-wear with blues, reds and neutrals, while the women’s line features nautical themes and stripes, as well as bold graphic tees and pops of color on muted palettes.
