Up Next: Marni For H&M
No sooner has the Versace for H&M collection arrived than the Swedish mass retailer is plotting its next partnership: This one with Consuelo Castiglioni of Marni. The Italian label will collaborate with H&M on a Spring collection for men and women, including accessories, shoes, scarves, and jewelry. The retailer promises all-over prints, bold color, and classic Marni silhouettes, including full pleated skirts, dresses, and cropped pants. “I wanted to create a true Marni wardrobe by revisiting all our favorite pieces in signature fabrics and prints. As always, I love juxtaposing prints and colors, mixing modern tribal with Bauhaus graphic and adding sporty utilitarian elements,” Castiglioni said in a statement. The collection will be available in over 250 H&M stores and online March 8, 2012.
