Mabel and her crew will feature in the campaign, and the collection will  preview in an Instagram Stories music video by Mabel, where exclusive Kangol x H&M Instagram filters  will let everyone be the self-made star. Kangol x H&M feat Mabel will drop on September 17 on selected  H&M stores nationwide. Megamall, SM Makati, Mall of Asia, Greenbelt, Uptown BGC and SM City Baguio.

“Kangol are excited to work with H&M and Mabel on this collaboration. The collection perfectly captures the  essence of Kangol today, full of fresh updates on streetwear style. We look forward to seeing our global Kangol  community wearing Kangol x H&M.” says Hamish Morjaria, Kangol’s Head of Brand Partnerships and Licensing 

“I am so excited about this collaboration with Kangol and H&M! Streetwear is in my blood and Kangol is such a  legendary brand. It’s amazing to collaborate with Kangol and H&M, and to share my creativity and my style with a  new generation,” says Mabel 

“Kangol x H&M feat Mabel is a dream collaboration for us at H&M, uniting an iconic streetwear brand with one of  the most authentic and genuine young music artists around. It’s about that 90s streetwear attitude updated for  today, a style that Mabel has made her own. There are so many hits, from the famous bucket hat, to the slim midi  dress and autumn’s hero piece, the puffer jacket,” says Emily Björkeheim, H&M’s Head of Design Divided. 

The Kangol Legacy

Kangol is a legendary label of streetwear, instantly recognised for its kangaroo logo. An English brand founded in  the 1920s, Kangol’s hats became an essential part of the look that evolved from 80s and 90s hip-hop culture. It’s  the same authenticity that today makes Kangol a streetwear wardrobe staple for fans all over the world. In fact, Mabel is  one of the most in-demand stars in the world right now, with over half-a-billion streams of her tracks like Don’t  

Call Me Up, Mad Love and Boyfriend. Mabel writes her own songs and defines her own style, a headstrong  attitude of creativity and self-respect that touches everything she does. 

The collection captures the perfect Kangol wardrobe for members of the self-made generation like Mabel: fresh,  authentic, fun. Of course, this is a complete wardrobe with everything for autumn, from hooded puffer jackets and long  puffers, to slouchy cardigans and sweaters knitted with the Kangol branding and logo. It’s about the essential  pieces, like cropped rollneck sweaters in either cream or colour stripes, oversized logo T’s and a logo long-sleeve  stretch midi-dress. Mabel herself co-created two pieces: a streetwear take on the slip dress, complete with  Kangol logos, and a Kangol-branded pair of joggers.

There’s a full set of accessories, like the world-famous Kangol bucket hat, as well as beanies and a beanie  pompom. There’s a boxy cross-body bag with a Kangol branded strap, a shopper and a bum-bag, as well as bag  charms. In fact, Kangol-branded socks are made to be seen, and the look is finished with Kangol scrunchies. 

A week before the collection drops, Mabel will reveal a new interactive video for her track Bad Behaviour on  Instagram Stories. Moreover, fans and followers can use six Kangol x H&M exclusively made filters to star in their own  totally unique self-produced version of the music video, and to share it with other members of the self-made generation around the world. The filters will be exclusively available on H&M’s Instagram channel from  September 10.
