Topped by a barrel-wave of rockabilly hair, Frida Gustavsson stars in the summer 2012 look book from high street chain H&M. It’s a particularly enticing collection for anyone bitten by the ’50s bug; vintage influences melded with sporty, modern silhouettes and fabrics. On top of my personal want list: sporty panelled crop tops in high-sheen finish and structured cropped bustiers.
