If there's one thing that will set our shopping experience alight, get us waiting in queues and rapidly hitting the purchase button, it's a good fashion collaboration. They're our chance to get a taste of designer-wear at a fraction of the price and they're so unique, they always warrant the question: 'Where did you get that from?'

This season is peppered with some with breathtaking items. Start making your wishlist now...

Altuzarra for Target

What to expect: In February, a cut-price collaboration between Peter Pilotto and Target sold out within hours on Net-A-Porter. Next up is Altuzarra, a luxury brand lauded by New Yorkers for its seductive tailoring. This capsule collection is no different, aiming to “instill a feeling of power, confidence and beauty in women everywhere.”

Expected prices: £30 (for accessories and tops) to £90 (for jackets)

When it lands: 14 September

Where to buy it:

Alexander Wang and H&M

What to expect: This season's big H&M collaboration is with irreverent designer Alexander Wang. The designer has been sharing sneak peaks of the boxing-inspired collection on Instagram, from a boxing glove key ring embossed with Wang's initials to Rihanna debuting a crop top and matching leggings in New York. Anyone who feels hesitant over these previews, can be reassured that the collection also includes illusion-stripe shirts, sporty LBDs and structured sweatshirts, as seen exclusively in Vogue Netherlands this month.

Expected prices: yet to be released

When it lands: 6 November

Where to buy it: and in H&M stores

Diane von Furstenberg and Goop

What to expect: Gwyneth Paltrow's lifestyle website Goop has collaborated with Diane von Furstenberg on the 40th anniversary of the designer's iconic wrap dress. No doubt it features a beautiful shirt wrap dress in black and white, inspired by strong iconic women such as Katherine Hepburn.

Expected prices: dresses from £309 ($498); bags from £141 ($228)

Holly Fulton and Radley

What to expect: After the successful collaboration last year - chic geometric graphics in smooth buttery leather - the duo are back with an equally impressive collection. Inspired by Holly’s love of pop art, the designs are all bold shapes, embossed patterns and icy blue hues. The range included everything from large totes to clutches and cross body bags and Radley's iconic dog makes an appearance as a quirky clutch bag.

Expected prices: from £129

When it lands: out now

Helmut Lang and Uniqlo

What to expect: Uniqlo is collaborating with Helmut Lang on what appears to be the chicest gym-wear we've ever seen. Described as the "sweat collection" when news of the collaboration first broke on it includes unisex, men's, women's, and children's pieces and with incredible attention to detail and craftsmanship.

Expected prices: $20 to $60 USD (UK equivalent £12.32 to £37)*

When it lands: 22 September

Converse and Missoni

Where to buy it:

Lykke Li and & Other Stories

What to expect: Swedish singer Lykke Li has created a work and play uniform for every woman in her collaboration with & Other stories, H&M's chich sister brand. "I'm a nomad and travelled my whole life, so my style choices have grown out of pure necessity," said Li. "It's been a dream of mine to have the perfect leather sack filled with the bare essentials, like a true nomad ready for business...This collection is my version of that lifesaving sack and will be my uniform until the day I die." Think clean slim shirts, slouchy oversized tops and a neutral palette.

Expected prices: blouses, £65; blazer, £165; jewellery from £5

When it lands: out now

Where to buy it: and in & Other Stories stores

Bella Freud and Fred Perry

What to expect: Love quirky jumpers? You'll love this. Bella Freud's cult sweaters - most famously ‘Ginsberg is God’ and ‘Je t’aime Jane’ – are a firm favourite among celebrities such as Alexa Chung and go for £280 a pop. But her sponsored_longform with British heritage brand Fred Perry means you can have a slice of her aesthetic for £100 less.

Expected prices: sweaters, £165; scarves from £95

Where to buy it:

Prabal Gurung and MAC

What to expect: “The one universal truth I really believe in is that every woman — no matter her shape, size or race — wants to look beautiful. I wanted to create that. I wanted the packaging to be beautiful — so beautiful that when a woman takes it out of her purse, it becomes a topic of conversation," said Prabal Gurung on the upcoming 14-piece MAC collection, which has been two years in the making. Inspired by his mother's vanity cabinet he saw growing up, it includes a bronzing powder, eye shadow duo, lipstick and more.

Expected prices: $20.00 to $70.00 USD (UK equivalent £12.32 to £43.11)*

When it lands: December
