Marni Tote, $645 via Net-a-Porter

A couple of days ago, the fashion Internet exploded with news of H&M’s next collaborative partner – quirky Italian label Marni. Forget Versace – this is something I might actually consider standing in line for, particularly because a full menagerie of accessories will also be available, right along with the retro-modern prints and oddball color combinations for which Marni is known.

Because of the nature of high-low collaborations (read: because of PVC ickiness), I never have much hope for the handbags and “leather” goods that will come out of these kinds of partnerships. Versace x H&M included some real leather, though, so who knows what the future (and Marni x H&M) might hold. It will hold some less-expensive takes on Marni’s much-sought-after costume jewelry, and that’s enough for me to be feeling the slight burn of excitement in the back of my brain. Sadly, We’ll have to wait until March 2012 to see this stuff in person. Are you sick of designer collaborations yet?

    I just cant do the all night line wait. I think that is why i cant get so excited. I really would like to purchase something from the collection but there is only one H&M in my area that will have the collection. H&M USA get us online PLEASE!

    I have to agree with you, I’m excited for the accessories!

    I am not sick of these collaborations, but it would be nice if people were able to get their hands on one piece at least , without waking up and standing in the queue at an ungodly hour. These collections are so hyped(Target Missoni) and heavily marketed, but so few are able to buy them.

    Can. Not. Wait.

  • Shirley J

    cant wait to see the collection!!!

  • Mari

    I feel these collaborations are so hyped most of the time, and then the collection comes out and it’s just blah. Except the jimmy choo one, that was great.

    So not that excited, even though that’s very politically incorrect

  • Sheila
