After the over-the-top, flashy mix that was the Versace + H&M collaboration, we are so excited about Marni's marriage with the high street retailer.

"I wanted to create a true Marni wardrobe by revisiting all our favourite pieces in signature fabrics and prints," Marni designer Consuelo Castiglioni said. "As always, I love juxtaposing prints and colours, mixing modern tribal with Bauhaus graphic adding sporty utilitarian elements."

Who knows fashion like the Italians? (Besides the French and Indians, of course…) Expect signature Marni prints, oversized dresses, palazzo pants and feminine loveliness at H&M come this March. Now this is a collaboration we'll line up for.

 

H&M + Marni opens March 8, 2012.
