H&M social fashion - new interactive catalogue connects to Facebook and uses 'Blog This' buttons

H&M have launched their Autumn fashion lines - and they've socialised them!

The new interactive H&M Autumn site allows users to select outfits and then blog interactive images or comment about the outfits on Facebook.

There is also the H&M Fashion Studio that allows visitors to select different models and backgrounds, dress them in different outfits and save the final images as JPEG files to the desktop:

Ironically attempting to offer this sort of styling was one of the things that contributed to the failure of Boo.com nearly 10 years ago - but with high speed broadband and prevalence of social platforms, the deployment of interactive, multi-view models could now be a really effective way of driving interest in H&M and subsequent 'viral traffic.'

Nice work!
