Luxury fashion label Kenzo has released its long awaited high street collection with H&M today, Thursday October 3.

The key themes in the range include plenty of colour, vivid prints and feminine details like ruffles.

Many pieces in the collection offer a new take on key KENZO archive styles, such as long tiered dresses made entirely from patterned ribbons.

You can buy the items online and in-stores but customers were disappointed this morning as the H&M website crashed due to high demand.

Dress £119.99, shirt (worn underneath) £49.99, gloves £49.99, bags £39.99 each

To avoid disappointment try refreshing the homepage regularly to keep an eye on when it is working again.

The items in the collection are priced from £59 up to £200.

The collaboration has been highly anticipated by fashionistas - Creative Directors Carol Lim and Humerto Leon have filtered through Kenzo's archives, taking inspiration from and giving a modern attitude to the bright and playful range.

Top £59.99, dress (worn under top) £59.99, trousers £49.99

Last year H&M launched a collection with French label Balmain which virtually sold out on the day it was released.

And this collection is expected to sell just as well but be warned it is not for the faint hearted - with colourful prints and bold silhouettes taking centre stage.

Dress £149, green shirt (worn underneath) £49.99

The items would make a great Christmas present for the style-savvy shopper and can be worn layered on top of one another or as single items.

The sweatshirt is a key piece of the Kenzo wardrobe, and here it comes with a new logo adapted from the archives, with ‘Kenzo jungle Paris’ patchworked in animal print around the image of a tiger.

Print jacket £199.99, sweatshirt £39.99, trousers (just seen) £29.99

Although the clothes may turn a few heads you can achieve a chic look by paring them with simple accessories and minimal make-up.
