Ever sneered at those people who queue around the block the night before the release of one of those high-street-high-fashion collaborations? Well, pack your tent, swallow your pride and stake out your spot on the pavement, because H&M’s collection with Italian label Marni is worth sleeping rough for.
Combining the brand’s beautifully understated appeal with H&M’s utilitarian approach, the collection features all the customary Marni signatures — muted palette with flashes of colour, bold yet wearable patterns, quality fabrics and an abundance of spots — alongside the label’s signature close-cut shapes. Consider your spring/summer wardrobe sorted.
On sale from 8 March.
