If you haven't been completely inundated by high-low designer collaborations by now, then here's another one to excite you. Marni for H&M makes its debut on March 8 and, for the first time in a long time, I'm pumped about a high-low collection! (Sorry Target.)
Marni clothing has never been a brand to offer much sex appeal. Bookish, artsy girls (think Sofia Coppola and Rashida Jones) are usually drawn to Marni for its daywear. The Marni appeal tends to revolve around geometric patterns, interesting fabric choices and wearability.
However, when it comes to accessories, Marni has easily outdone every other designer by combining blocky organic materials with crafty synthetics. For that reason, I'm particularly interested in getting my hands on several Marni X H&M necklaces, bags and bangles...and maybe a sequined collar. With the entire collection's price point below $120, Marni necklaces finally won't break the bank.
So what do you think of the Marni X H&M collection? Are there any pieces you would buy? Stay tuned after March 8 to see what I got away with and how I've played with it...tips invited.
