After months of teaser videos, sneak peeks, and very impatient waiting, the Marni x H&M lookbook is finally here, and it is as fabulous as expected. For this range, designer Consuelo Castiglioni serves up the whimsical sophistication we’re used to seeing from the brand, without sacrificing top-notch quality.
Prices are reasonable (considering most of the pieces are made of silk), ranging from $9.95 for a pair of socks, to $129 for a coat. See? Totally affordable.
Unlike the retailer’s last collaboration with a certain other Italian design house, these pieces seem a little more practical, and can be seamlessly incorporated into any wardrobe. Those floral printed pants? Throw on a black t-shirt and you’ve got a look. Easy.
Marni doesn’t have the name recognition that Versace or Jason Wu does. I suspect this collection might be easy to scoop up without the stress of rabid crowds or greedy Ebay resellers. Perhaps the clothes will be in stores for more than one day. Only time will tell.
I have my eye on the gold and lavender floral blouse and that blooming white floral necklace. The collection will be available in select H&M stores starting March 8th. Will you be picking anything up?
