Last week I posted about a decadent designer pairing between the French pastry house, Ladurée, and Japanese designer Tsumori Chisato. No less sweet – but definitely longer lasting – are the latest designer collabs in women's fashion.
Starting next month, Marni's line for H&M is full of awesome geometric patterns, chunky accessories, and bright pops of color. I'm loving the striped cardigan that mixes neutral tones with a shock of chartreuse. Also, the amazing paillette collars, which would instantly elevate even a t-shirt and jeans.
Also exciting is the duet of J.Crew and Manolo Blahnik – a perfect blend of a classical and more whimsical brand. But as HuffPo and Lucky "warn", they won't be much cheaper than their big sisters, so the bargain shopper in me won't set my sights on a pair just yet.
And the award for the cutest (and pint-sized) upcoming collab goes to DVF for Gap Kids. The line of itty bitty pieces will get little ladies started early on their designer dud collection. Every girl needs a classic wrap dress in her closet ... no matter how old she is!
