As you may have heard, fashion designer Marni teamed up with H&M for a very special collection that was released on Thursday. There was so much buzz about this collection, Sofia Coppala directed the TV commercials, and many of the pieces were already being sported at Paris Fashion Week. I describe Marni's collection and fabrics as futuristic space alien meets sub-Saharan African wild prints. These are the two pieces I picked up: this polka dot skirt, and the silk dress below.
Please forgive the sunglasses, but I took these pictures at 7am this morning, and I didn't want to subject you to how tired I looked. You might recognize this very special T-shirt from a previous post. If not, please read about it here.
The polka dot skirt represents the "futuristic alien" aspect of Marni's collection and this silk dress represents the "African" elements.
In conclusion - I love the pieces I got, even though they are way out of my price comfort zone.
The skirt was $69.95 and I'm keeping it for sure. It's comfortable, playful, I can wear it all year round.
But I'm less sure about this lovely silk dress that cost $129.00.
Pros: I love the print, it's a beautiful, soft silk, I can remix it as a top and as a skirt, the sleeves and length are perfect for work.
Cons: The price is a big one, and it's a little sheer.
I'm leaning towards keeping it, but what do you guys think? Keep the silk dress or return it?
