H&M has created an extension of their ethically sourced, sustainably made Conscious Collection called Conscious Exclusive to fulfill partywear needs. The spring launch could explain the whole Helen Hunt in Conscious Collection at this year's Oscars thing, though the actress's dress isn't among the range of gowns, jumpsuits, and embellished accessories for the ladies, nor the tailored suits and footwear for men and women.
Conscious Exclusive is the latest announcement in the long line of H&M's happenings this year, proving that once the fast retailing behemoth gets on a roll, it just can't stop. But maybe if it could stop launching new collections in new places, the US would be treated to e-commerce. Here's hoping. Check out the collection, which launches April 4 at H&M stores worldwide, after the jump.
