Sneak Peek at H&M’s ‘Fashion Against AIDS’ Spring 2012 Collection


Retailer H&M has designed a 2012 capsule collection to raise awareness for HIV and AIDS, with a portion of each sale going to charity.

For their fifth annual Fashion Against AIDS collection, H&M drew inspiration from “global styles” by commissioning one-of-a-kind prints from international artists and illustrators in order to create colorful and fashion-forward designs.

According to H&M, 25% of all proceeds will go directly to several international youth HIV/AIDS awareness projects: Designers Against AIDS, MTV’s Staying Alive Foundation, the United Nations Population Fund and YouthAIDS.

The spring 2012 Fashion Against AIDS collection launches online (where available) and at 300 H&M stores worldwide starting this Thursday, April 26th.

    I think this is all great! Stylish pieces going for an even better cause. I will definitely be making some purchases from this line whenever I can get my hands on them.

    Does anyone happen to know the general price range for these products?

    While I like that proceeds are going to charity, I don’t really like collection as a whole. It’s just not my style. I, however, really like striped bra top and that jacket next to it, both on the first row! I would definitely consider buying those if I can get to an H&M soon. When are they going to give the US online shopping?!

    The print of the 1st item is lovely, while the item is not my style. But it is fantastic that these are being sold for a cause.

    I love the fact that proceeds are going to international youth HIV/AIDS awareness projects, and that the retail chain is bringing about awareness. Unfortunately, the pieces in the collection look poorly made and cheap. Such a great cause deserves better material.

    I love everything!! A little grungy, a little bohemian, a little rocker…definitely things I’d like to wear. Can’t wait to check them out in a store!

    I love the style and of course the awareness to AIDs and the charitable funds. I think the pieces can be used in many versatile and stylish ways. I will definitely be making several purchases of this collection. Love the wedges and easy to wear tops.

    I don’t know…it seems a little thrown together to me. It all pieces that have been seen before except with a new pattern on the fabric. I do like a few of the pieces though. (the shoes and the black dress)

    I love the items in the two top rows, and the wedges. :D

    If only the Philippines had H&M. Now, I wanna be in Singapore just so that I could shop at H&M again.
