MARNI FOR H&M
Finally we can put the rumors to rest! The next big designer collaboration that H&M is going to venture into would be with Marni. I am super duper excited for this collaboration! As with all collaborations they’ve done, the pieces truly exude the essence of the brand they’re collaborating with and there’s no better time to do so than this S/S’12.

Marni is a brand well known for designs that bring to life color, print and shape. From the teaser snippets that we’ve seen, the collection is as fun and quirky as it can get. It brings to life the character of freedom and quirkiness that the label is well-known for. You can expect to see prints all over in strong, bold colors – that will of course look fantastic in layers that match and clash. The women’s collection that I’ve seen so far, I must say I am in love with! Vivid colors with bold prints that seem to be inspired by the lively prints we see in Africa. The silhouettes are very Marni where you’ll find pleated skirts to cropped pants created in a range of fabrics from silk to crisp cotton.
The men’s collection - on the other hand - carries staples that are relaxed. The brand’s classic prints are still used – either as a statement piece or as a small detail that makes all the difference.
The pieces that I am mostly looking forward to are the accessories – which come in an array of jewelry, scarves, shoes and of course bags!!! Super excited for these!!!
So when is the big day you say? It is currently slated to be launched on the 8th of March 2012 world-wide. So better mark your calendars my dear a.fasione-istas!
