Marni for H&M
On March 8th 2012, a Marni at H&M collection is released worldwide!
With Women and Menswear clothes as well as accessories.

Be the first to have some glimpses of the upcoming spring collection in this exclusive video!

The collection mixes Tribal prints with Bauhaus graphics in a playful, colorful way that catches the sporty but always so chic world of Marni.

"It is great to speak to a wider audience and in particular to the younger generations" says Consuelo Castiglioni, Creative Director / Marni.

Available from 8th March, 2012 in around 260 stores worldwide and online, the collection features both clothing and accessories all at H&M’s prices, meaning everyone will have the chance to enter Marni’s world.

“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 colours, mixing modern tribal with Bauhaus graphic adding sporty utilitarian elements”. Consuelo Castiglioni, Founder and Creative Director.

For women, the colours are vivid and the prints are bold, be they African inspired or simpler colour blocks. The silhouettes are all Marni staples, with full pleated skirts, dresses, cropped trousers and jacquard knit, and fabrics range from silk to crisp cotton poplin. To finish the complete look the collection also includes jewellery, shoes, bags and scarves.

For men, the colours and fabrics are softened for a relaxed take on menswear staples that is truly Marni. The use of print is subtle, often as a lining or as a contrast detail for shirts, the silhouette a modern and relaxed take on masculine classics.

I can not wait for this! This is great news and definitely an upgrade from the horrible Versace collection

So unexpected, but in a good way. I'm happy it's being released on my birthday
I'm quite fond of Consuelo and what she constantly sends down the runway, so I'm definitely camping out for this. I liked the Versace pieces and shopped for them, but this is way more up my alley. Can't wait for amazing prints and accessories!

After seeing the video, I love that this summer everyone was doing African and navajo prints and H&M/Marni is still giving it a go for 2012 and looking entirely refreshing. The dress Aymeline is wearing has such gorgeous colors.. and the silver sandals are divine. I will probably skip the jewelry.

I wish they were also doing underwear/swimwear, I love Marni's take on it and it'd be so perfect for H&M. Also wishing a lost coat/sweater, maybe a light trench coat will make it to the collection, Marni's winter pieces are some of their strongest.

Thanks for bringing this in, honeycombchild, you've made my night.

OMG pleasantly shocked!


MARNI is one of the few collections i check out religiously every season purely for fashion inspiration. and while i adore her prints and color palettes I'm a bit unsure as to how her silhouettes will fit/flatter this petit, not so stick thin body type i need structure! but get a load of those bloody AMAZING stripe hats.

I passed on the chance to work the Versace unveiling but MUST get myself on the list to support the downtown location.

Ah, finally a collaboration that I might like!
With the past few collaborations it's been pretty dissapointing in the menswear area. So my hopes are up..
