We’ve waxed lyrical about pyjama-style trousers, but how about silky pyjama-style shorts, almost like fashionable boxer shorts for girls? They have the advantage over their trouser counterparts of showing off pins and ankles. Take your lead from D&G and seek out scarf-print shorts or make like Marc by Marc Jacobs and go all nautical. If you like to mix and match your trends, there are also lots of tie dye surfy silk shorts out there.
Inspiration! D&G SS12
A little scarf-like! Zara shorts £19.99
I’m in love with these shorts by Marc by Marc Jacobs £56 from The Outnet – be quick!
Lou Dillon is decked out completely in Marni x H&M (wish I’d queued up now!)
Amazing silk shorts at Reiss and just a little bit surfy
We were completely over-excited about the Marni/H&M collaboration the second it was announced. But now there are pictures and a video directed by Sofia Coppola we are incandescent with anticipation…if that’s even possible!
We’re counting down the days until the collection hits the shops (grrr queuing) on 3 March.
Marni + H&M = match made in heaven So you know the news- Marni is the next designer brand to collaborate with H&M…and there’s still a cruise collection in come in February from Versace – fruit and cake prints a-plenty = yum!
We are super excited about both. So put 8th of March in the diary as Marni Mania day.
Founder and Creative Director of Marni, Consuelo Castiglioni will be completely involved and said: “I wanted to create a true Marni wardrobe by revisiting all our favourite pieces in signature fabrics and prints. As always, I love juxtaposing prints and colours, mixing modern tribal with Bauhaus graphic adding sporty utilitarian elements.”
Official Marni for H&M image - hopefully a hint of what's to come!
We’re promised that the collection will include strong prints and bold colour intended to be worn together and layered to embrace a clashing aesthetic. There will be pleated skirts, dresses, cropped trous, knits and silks as well as jewellery, bags and shoes…yay!
Check out the video.
We hope that the H&M collaboration looks a little like Marni’s SS12 collection of floral and 70s look pieces. Here are a few Marni classics that we hope will inspire the H&M collection!
