H&M John Boyega Edition Collection

Actor John Boyega may be known for playing out-of-this-world characters, but offscreen he’s a force in fashion. Today, the Londoner releases his H&M Edition by John Boyega collection online and in select stores.

Boyega’s fall collection with H&M is a standout menswear line featuring floral prints, tie-dye patterns, and more. But bold designs aside, the clothing also makes a sustainable fashion statement. The line offers a puffer jacket created with Vegea, a vegan alternative to leather made partly out of waste from the wine industry. On top of that, Boyega’s collection includes fall staple pieces constructed with organic cotton, recycled denim, and other sustainable textiles.

“I’m excited to collaborate with H&M on a collection that aligns my passions with purpose,” Boyega says. “Sustainability to me, means thinking about longevity for the benefit of those coming after us. This collaboration has already birthed opportunities for fresh dynamic creatives. Two birds with one stone.” 

Scroll on for a closer look at the collaboration along with the cool and comfy ways Boyega rocks his own collection below. 

Fall Flowers

H&M John Boyega Florals

Florals shouldn’t only belong to spring. H&M and Boyega prove there are ways to transition flowery details into deeper earth tones to create a maximalist fall look. The British star’s Edition line features a rich mocha-colored button down that he pairs with sleek dark pants for a clean, put-together fit. And for chiller days, there’s the collection’s floral sweatsuit, which comes complete with a track jacket and matching sweatpants. Whether you dress your fall flowers up or down, it’s clear that the print couldn’t be more on-trend this season.​​​​​​

Be Green

H&M John Boyega Green Cardigan

EB Corbin Knitted Cardigan| $70 /// EB Ken Tee | $20

Cardigans are synonymous with fall, but don’t just fall back on standard neutral hues, go green instead. The inviting tree-colored sweater is sure to brighten up your autumn apparel, and as Boyega shows, the best way to wear it is with a fresh T-shirt, slacks, and sneakers. This pairing is exactly where drip meets comfort, which means you should have it in your daily rotation for sure.

Lock It and Layer It

H&M John Boyega Checked Coat

Since layering is fashionable and functional for changing fall temperatures, it’s about time you make it your go-to move this season. For inspiration, Boyega spotlights how to get it done. He goes with this checked coat crafted with recycled Italian wool, wearing it over a mustard turtleneck to help make it pop. This look proves that neutrals always benefit from a bright companion piece. As you can see, combining unexpected hues yields extra stylish results.

Size Up

H&M John Boyega Sweatshirt

EB Blink Crewneck | $40 /// EB Bill Denim Trousers | $50

If dressing for the pandemic taught us anything, it’s that relaxed fits are here to stay. And this cozy, tie-dye crewneck sweatshirt is all the proof that you need. This sweatshirt’s loose fit works with jeans and sneakers, or if you fancy something more elevated, throw it on with trousers and loafers. One thing’s for sure, a pullover is a versatile fall staple that’s always worth adding to your cart.
