Vogue has broken the news that Italian designer label, Marni, is the latest to annouce a collaboration with high street giant H&M. Following in the (some would say garish) footsteps of Versace, this upcoming collaborative collection offers something for everyone from pleated skirts, cropped trousers and printed tops for women to an equally exciting collection for men – more details to come. The collection will land in 260 stores worldwide on March 8 2012. The question is – will I manage to get any of this one? My coups so far have been a purse from the Jimmy Choo collection and a dress, towel and skirt from the Matthew Williamson.
Regarding the upcoming collaboration H&M’s Margareta van den Bosch told Vogue, “Marni has such a modern touch with everything they do, mixing prints and accessories in a playful but chic way. It’s fantastic to see how Consuelo Castiglioni coordinates her designs, matching new combinations of print and colour, with such incredible craftsmanship behind every piece. The collection will arrive in stores at just the perfect time, as a lovely statement for spring.”
