As with every season, Prada releases its highly anticipated “Fantasy” lookbook and spring 2012 is no exception. The new season features a dose of nostalgia with handmade collages of vintage photographs from the fifties and sixties matched with images from backstage at the runway show. Models such as Lindsey Wixson, Kasia Struss, Ginta Lapina, Fei Fei Sun and Daphne Groeneveld make an appearance in photos shot by Phil Meech and artwork created by Jereon Koolhaas and Lok Jansen.
Eclectic, quirky and timeless, the Marni collection at H&M is a modular wardrobe for women and men, complete with accessories. It is composed of elegant items selected by Marni’s creative director and founder, Consuelo Castiglioni, from her extensive repertoire to create a playful range of style possibilities. A sense of sophisticated eclecticism is mixed with a sporty allure; the accent is on the streamlined purity of design and the intensity of surfaces. The result is high on prints and spring energy, with the unmistakable Marni signatures evident in the juxtaposition of shapes, patterns and materials.
Available from March 8, 2012 in around 260 H&M stores worldwide and online (where available), the collection features both clothing and accessories all at H&M’s prices.
