After the Versace madness subsides H&M has announced the next designer diffusion line for Spring 2012 and we couldn’t be more excited for MARNI to take the reigns.
Available on March 8th, 2012 both in store and online, the collection includes clothes, scarves, shoes, bags, and jewelry. It will feature bold African prints and colour blocked designs applied to their jacquard knits, rigid cotton, full pleated skirts, and cropped pants for women, while for men, these prints and colour palette will be softer and more relaxed.
Marni’s founder and creative director Consuelo Castiglioni had this to say about the collaboration:
â€œI wanted to create a true Marni wardrobe by revisiting all our favourite pieces in signature fabrics and prints. As always, I love juxtaposing prints and colours, mixing modern tribal with Bauhaus graphic and adding sporty utilitarian elements.â€
