Images via Marni

My level of excitement for mass market designer collaborations always varies widely (and mostly wanes by the time that full lookbooks surface), but believe me when I say that Marni for H&M has been marked on my calendar since the day it was announced. Marni’s work is so modern and fun that I suspected that it would translate well to the fabrication of H&M – after all, materials like plastics and grosgrain ribbon are already a mainstay of the Italian brand’s aesthetic.

Now that the images of the collection are out, I’m pleased that my suspicions were correct. The clothes look great, but it’s the accessories and jewelry that are the real stars. Marni didn’t make many bags for this outing, but the super chunky retro-modern necklaces and bracelets more than make up for it. Check out all of the accessories from the collection after the jump.

    These are great accessories.  Accessories are so under rated some times when the actually make the outfit.

    Now the big question, what bits will my tiny H & M get?!  Do you know if that first bag is real leather?  Such a nice shape!

    Anyone know how I can find out which H&M in my area will carry this collabo?

    The accessories are WAY better than the clothes! Way too many oversized polka dots and clashing colors in the clothes.

    I’m liking the sunglasses and the shoes but sadly don’t live close to an H&M that carries the collaborations.

    Hm. Nothing’s standing out for me. Which is fine. I don’t have an H&M close by.
