Marni for H&M: The Good, The Bad, and The Stuff We'll Wrestle You For

Now that you've had time to mull over Marni's upcoming capsule collection for fashion-for-the-masses retailer H&M, we present our take on the line -- full of primal-meets-geometric patterns, chunky jewelry, exotic prints, and unexpected shapes.



As is the case with all diffusion lines, this one (the follow-up to H&M's collab with Versace) offers up stellar deals for designer duds, including dresses and jackets starting at about $80 and accessories around $20. (Note: Dresses from Marni proper reach the $1000 mark and sunglasses weigh in at around $400). 

While the two don't overlap in price, they do share their designer Consuelo Castiglioni's penchant for clean lines, splashy colors, and bold accessories.

So, from Marni's H&M collection (which goes on sale March 8) here they are: the good, the bad, and the stuff we are willing to wrestle over on the mall floor.
