Japanese recording artist, dancer, model, actress and entrepreneur, Namie Amuro will drop her final fashion collaboration with H&M Aug. 31.

According to a 2018 Billboard report, “Due to the huge success of the first Namie Amuro x H&M collection launched in Japan, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan in April, the fall/winter campaign will add China and South Korea to the countries carrying the line. With approximately 600 stores in six countries, this will be the largest local campaign initiated from Japan for the fashion brand.”

“H&M teased a look from the second Amuro collection featuring the “Hero” songstress rocking a white collared shirt and baggy grey sweater over trendy wide striped pants, with a black suede baker boy hat as a finishing touch,” according to a 2018 Billboard report.

The Namie Amuro x H&M collection will go on sale Aug. 21 in stores and online.
