Marni’s collaboration with H&M is less than a fortnight away and I’m buzzing with excitement. Some fashion *things* you get excited because it’s big news but this is more exciting along the lines of ‘what nice things am I gonna get my hands on’. Marni is the fashion industry’s fashion designer, they’ve always been slightly under the radar. Consuelo Castiglioni has for over a decade honed the label’s ethos, a feminine, playful and slightly intellectual look.
Marni excel at vintage-inspired prints and a loose, easy to wear silhouette, that’s is something that easily translates to cheaper fabrics and patterns so it’s not hard to see how well the brand will translate on the high street. Similarly their accessories mix wood, metal and plastic and by the looks of it they’ve really come up trumps for H&M. See you in the queue on the 8th March!
On another note, don’t the bags remind you of Prada’s AW12 collection from yesterday? Mixed reactions all round, I don’t know if I’ll be wearing the Spice Girl’s style split coat but apart from that it was love.
