Marni for H&M Debuting March 6th



To be absolutely honest, I’ve never been really excited about overrated designer collaborations with mass retailers like H&M and Target. I always thought it was counterintuitive to the philosophy of luxury fashion houses to mass produce their designs. Perhaps I’m just bitter that I can never get up early enough to actually see remnants of the collection that everyone snatched up 5 minutes after the store opens?

Nonetheless, I would love some pretty little prints in my closet this Spring, and where better than to find them at the launch of the Marni for H&M collection next Tuesday!

You can preview the entire collection here

 Some of my favourite pieces:


1. Coat, $149


This is by far my favorite piece. I love the short sleeves and cape-like shape that is present throughout the Marni collection, but this coat is particularly a good bang for your buck. I saw it worn in the ad campaign with a belt, and it was SHEEK.

2. Printed dress, $99



Of the entire collection, I would bet that this dress would probably sell out the fastest because it is the most wearable and versatile piece with a beautiful print. There is also a colorblock version of this dress. Both are perfect for summer.



3. Blue polka-dot blazer



This could look amazing, or ridiculous. On the website the color is so vibrant, and I could see it being an amazing statement piece. I also love the clean, simplistic design that juxtaposes the busy print.

Will you be checking out this collection?


Xoxo Cat.

P.S: You know it’s exam season when all the bloggers start posting much less frequently, LOL.

    1. Yeah I don't think it's worth it to stand in line for hours for a $100 dress or $20 scarf.

  6. I love the scarves! But I've always been attracted to vibrant prints :) I discovered your blog today and it's awesome reading about a fellow Canadian! Too many fashion blogs are posting pictures about Summer...and its difficult to find inspiration to deal with Canada's weather :D
