Well, I won’t say I wasn’t disappointed by the H&M and Versace collaboration from a fortnight ago – in fact, I’ve kept nothing of the five pieces I bought, so underwhelmed was I, but news of the latest designer to get on board with the Swedish superstore – Marni – is truly something to look forward to.

Famed for its almost anti-fashion stance – loose, androgynous cuts and distinctly un-feminine prints – the Italian house will produce a capsule collection to be sold at H&Ms worldwide (read: Dublin and Belfast, and probably no menswear) from March.

It’s definitely a partnership I’m excited about; I love Marni’s prints and I own several of their accessories (disclosure: my sister used to be their handbag designer so I had an “in” a couple of years back) so I’m looking forward to checking out what they offer come March. This probably means the Tom Ford rumourmill can die down, but we always have A/W 2012 to look forward to . . . if you can think that far ahead!
