Marni And Me

H&M's recent collaboration with Marni has equipped me with a wealth of inspiration. Versace was the jazzy Jamaican obsession last year, but this turn of high fashion is a much fresher and modern cut. The shirts have a stroke of minimalism about them, where ice pastel colours meet sharp and static collars. The parka jacket recruitment is a particular attention grabber, with oversized construction and strong colours meeting with postman shorts. The perfect tease and introduction to the Spring for me. I've put together a charity shop collage in the Marni mindframe, with a warm yellow countryside jacket on top of a ribbed green jumper.

  7. Love Marni for H&M! I'm waiting for the 8th of March, when here, in Poland (and probably all over the world), at 8a.m. the new-brand collection will be opened! So many emotions!
