Sneak Peek: This is what you can expect from Kenzo x H&M

Back in May, we got the word that H&M's 2016 collab would be with Parisian fashion house, Kenzo. 

It's not an out-of-the-blue choice for H&M whose previous collaborations have been creative and stylish, but we wondered how the high-fashion brand would fit in with the high-street fave. Perfectly, it seems.

H&M has a reputation for being urban and cool and, most importantly, accessible (oh, and budget friendly) and aside from the budget-friendly part, that's Kenzo's jam too.

There's not a Cara or a Gigi or a Kendell in sight for the campaign, either, which is thoroughly refreshing. Instead, the looks are modelled by young artists, activists and creatives.

Behold, the first three looks.
