Seeing Double: Tribal Influences


I came across a Nitrolicious report while perusing the fashion blogs today: H&M will be launching its third Fashion Against AIDS (FAA) campaign on May 20, 2010, donating 25% of sales to relevant projects. Launching just in time for the summer music festivals, the designers at H&M apparently took their cues from the Coachella set. I do not quite understand this H&M quote regarding the FAA collection, but I'll re-post it. Make what you will of it:

"The style of the festival is a global trend that’s all about freedom of expression and shared experiences. For girls, fashion this summer means a mix of rock, bohemia and glamour, with added ethnic touches, such as denim hot pants or patterned leggings matched with embellished tunic tops" [emphasis added].

Huh? Denim hot pants serve as ethnic touches?

Not sure what H&M is trying to say, but that's besides the point. I was struck by the similarity between the H&M flats (pictured on the right, via Nitrolicious) and the House of Harlow heels which I posted last fall. Is it in poor taste to link back to one's own blog? Because I just did.

I'm not sure which pair I prefer. The HOH heels have an undeniable sex appeal, but I think the H&M flats would be incredibly fun to stomp around in all summer - and would be a killer addition to a weekend wardrobe. Thoughts?
