When I think of Marni, I think of dots. Of course, the label is know for its many distinctive prints, but every season there is something dot-related incorporated into the collection. This little silk dress sums up Marni pretty well: it’s just cute enough without being too cute, and it’s just sexy enough without being too sexy. There is always a kind of Technicolor feel to the colour palette that adds a certain element of vintage romance.
Many are predicting that this H&M collection won’t receive massive queues like the ones for Versace, Lanvin (read about my experience) or Jimmy Choo, since Marni isn’t exactly a household name. It’s hard to foretell. It’s also the first time since Matthew Williamson (I think) that the collection is being launched on a weekday, and that makes a huge difference. Although, the true Marni gals surely took the day off…
$99 at select H&M locations (Pacific Centre in Vancouver). Available Thursday, March 8th at 9am.
PS. There is another exciting collaboration being launched on March 8th. More on that on Wednesday!
