If I could wear 3 designers for the rest of my life, I think it would be Marni would be at the top of the list alongside the Dries Van Noten, and Givenchy. (Risky commitment to admit this!) In case you haven't already found out on the blogosphere, Marni is doing a collaboration with H&M.
First of all, if we can get beyond the fact that it is going to be cheap and Marni - I think what I'm looking forward to the most is how the distinctive silhouettes and prints would translate into mass manufacturing. I'm actually hopeful that this collection will maintain Marni's integrity, craftsmanship, and design despite it's price range. You can see how the prints and shape of garments (such as the infamous boxy coat) scream Marni regardless of how much you have in your bank. I think I'm more excited about this collaboration than any ever!
The collection is described as: "Tribal prints mixed with colorful Bauhaus graphics: "I wanted to create a true Marni wardrobe by revisiting all our favorite pieces in signature fabrics and prints," explains Consuelo Castiglioni. "As always, I love juxtaposing prints and colors, mixing modern tribal with Bauhaus graphic adding sporty utilitarian elements."
