H&M Fashion Against AIDS 2012: Tribal Inspired Clothing And Accessories Sneak Peek (PHOTOS)


Who doesn't love a good sneak peek -- especially when it comes to home decor, fashion or beauty products? In this regular feature, we'll take you behind the scenes of some of style's biggest and most popular companies, and will show what products they're about to ship to stores.

Fashion is all about making a statement, but when it comes to creating clothing pieces and leaving a mark, sometimes trends are more than just the fabric.

H&M has partnered up with international artists and illustrators to create a custom clothing collection to raise money and bring awareness to the worldwide HIV/AIDS epidemic. Since 2008, the retailer has released custom "Fashion Against AIDS" clothes donating a portion of the proceeds to global HIV and AIDS initiatives. Past collaborating designers include Rihanna, Timbaland and Katharine Hamnett.

Just like all of H&M's collaborated collections, the store went for trends and bold prints in both the clothing pieces and accessories. Some of our favourite pieces include the African tribal inspired fabrics on denim, jackets and tops and the bright spring colours on wedges and shorts.

The collection will hit stores April 26 in Canada.

Check out some of the pieces from H&M's 2012 Fashion Against AIDS.
