Get your carts ready; here's a second glimpse at the highly-anticipated collaboration.

When it comes to teasers (and blockbuster collaborations), no ones it better than H&M. Back in May, the high-street retailer announced its next designer collab with Kenzo designers, Carol Lim and Humberto Leon, sending fans of both brands into frenzy. Later in July, H&M released images of the collaborative collection one-by-one to keep everyone guessing but it's the latest reveal that set our hearts in aflutter. 

On Friday, H&M released images of a folkloric ribbon dress featuring various prints from the collection. The bright and whimsy piece is a fresh interpretation by Carol and Humberto (the people behind Opening Ceremony, too) of an iconic design by founder, Kenzo Takada. Donning the short dress with ruffes and scalloped detailing in the released image is Norwegian musician, Anna of the North. She is a part of the Kenzo x H&M lookbook and one of many ambassadors for the collaboration, together with already announced Amy Sall, Juliana Huxtable, Oko Ebomo and Isamaya Ffrench.

The KENZO x H&M collection will be hitting 270 selected stores worldwide, as well as online on November 3.
