Marni for H&M Preview
Like droves of other fashion obsessed ladies I have been waiting with bated breath for the debut of H&M's collaboration with Marni. The collection, which is beautiful and full of voluminous printed dresses and colorful geometric accessories, hits the shelves of H&M stores around the country this Thursday.
To say I was excited to preview and stage a photoshoot with the collection is an understatement. And after picking up the stunning samples from the showroom, I had trouble thinking about anything other than the clothes and how I envisioned styling the looks. There was a moment in a yoga class last week where I had to say to myself, "Stop thinking about Marni for H&M!!!"
Luckily, I got my ladies together for some consultation. Clare Vivier came over to check out the looks and talk styling. Jeana Sohn agreed to photograph me in my favorite places and doing my favorite things, all decked out in Marni for H&M, of course. When I mentioned the shoot to Beatrice Valenzuela, she said she wanted to do my hair and make up. Music to my ears!
We spent a full day shooting last week and we had a blast. And after moving through my day in the playful clothes and accessories, I felt completely inspired.
There are many must-have pieces here, but if I had to select favorites they would be: the straw hat, the silk pajama short set and the leggings. And the white sequin collar. And the silver sandals. Shall I go on?
Are you excited for Marni for H&M? What pieces are you lusting after?
