Written by . Posted in Blog.

Uber excited doesn’t hit the nail on the head when trying to coin an adjective for the way we are feeling at the moment from getting the news about this collaboration. H&M always have had exciting collaborations, the most recent one with Versace blew everyone out of the park! In readiness for next year March, H&M has taken Italian label, Marni on board to partner with  in their high-street collaborate. Where do we come in? This collection (we’ve heard) mixes Tribal Prints and Graphics, it doesn’t get more African-Inspired than this.

I wanted to create a true Marni wardrobe by revisiting all our favorite pieces in signature fabrics and prints. As always, I love juxtaposing prints and colors, mixing modern tribal with Bauhaus graphic adding sporty utilitarian elements,” –  Consuelo Consiglioni of Marni

Marni for H&M is set to hit the stores in March 2012! We sure can’t wait for this print-astic experience!
