I almost forgot this whole Marni at H&M thing was happening! So it was a really nice surprise to see these first peeps of two of the looks at Glamour.com today. In this Age of Mixing Prints, there’s no question the line will do very well. But what I’m most excited about is the SHOES. And what I really need to know is will H&M online shopping finally be live by March 8 when the line is supposed to be available in the U.S? That’s probably too much to hope for. But needless to say I would much rather click like mad for the silver platform pumps I spied in the video below than wait in line for hours in the fickle San Francisco weather, which I absolutely will not do no matter how much I love Marni, which is a lot. Also: the accessories look amazing.
I love what Tim Blanks of Style.com says about Consuelo Castiglioni, Marni’s founder and creative director:
“She aims for a sort of sensuality of the mind.” Go Consuelo!
