H&M has announced its new spring collaboration and it's—drumroll please—with Swedish Hasbeens, our favorite-ever clog company. Coming to stores April 20th, the Swedish Hasbeens x H&M collection will comprise three styles of wood-sole clogs inspired by traditional 1970s-era Swedish styles. There's a strappy wedge with three buckle straps, a heeled summer sandal with an ankle strap, and a peep-toe slip-on wedge topped in snake-effect leather. The shoes come in a variety of colors and will be handcrafted and made of environmentally-friendly materials.

"I love the genuine feeling you get from Hasbeens, from the wood and the leather, and also how they take something traditio­nal and Swedish and make it contemporary and modern," says Ann-Sofie Johansson, who heads up H&M's design department. "These Hasbeens for H&M fit perfectly with the ’70s bohemian look that’s so important this coming season."

Swedish Hasbeens' main line regularly retail for upwards of $200 a pair—we spent the summer of 2010 living in our red Hasbeens mules which are cute, but really, $250?—so it's exciting to see this much-coveted clog brand branching out into more affordable territory. All shoes in the Swedish Hasbeens x H&M collection will be available in sizes 36-40 and will be priced between $59.95 and $69.95.
