Sneak Peek: Marni for H&M Collaboration to Hit Stores in March 2012

I’m still reeling from Versace for H&M mania–the collection launched barely two weeks ago–but H&M has just revealed their next designer collaboration. They’re sticking with the Italians for this next collab, and if you found Versace for H&M’s loud prints and studs a touch too much, this collection will deliver prints and color combinations that are just right. Get excited guys, because Marni is coming to an H&M near you on March 8.

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

In a video H&M has released to promote the collection, Castiglioni added, “I’m very proud of the result–everything has the same level of quality, craft and attention to detail that Marni is known for.” The video also offers a peek at the collection: a bold cobalt polka dotted suit, printed dresses, platform silver pumps, striped sweaters for men, and statement accessories worth waiting in line for. Basically, it looks really, really good. Take a look.

Style.com’s Tim Blanks makes a cameo in the video and calls Castiglioni a “thinking designer” who “aims for a sensuality of the mind.” Well said. We’re big fans of Marni’s intellectual quirkiness and striking color combos. Needless to say, we’re very excited about this one. Are you? Will you be camping out?
