The time has arrived for the brand new H&M collaboration with Marni to be revealed. Original patterns, amazing silk pieces, to die for jewellery – I can not wait till 8th March to update my closet with a handful of items. By far my favourite are the silk creation – bright shorts, pajama styled shirts and trousers (trend alert!) and even silk cardigans: those items will be unique on high street. But also, unlike the Versace for H&M predecessor, Marni jewelery creations are worth paying attention to: statement necklaces, colourful earrings and oversized bracelets that scream high fashion. The only items I am not impressed with are sandals, which look too masculine and bulky and anything in brown and green tribal print – the kind of print that despite uniqueness just does not look stylish enough. All in all though, I am excited as there is a whole range of items I absolutely love! This will go down in history as one of the best collaborations for H&M.
Indeed the success of the team up could be predicted by looking at the great turn out at the launch party which saw stars like Drew Barrymore, Freida Pinto, Winona Ryder and Mila Jovovich showcase the designs. Below are (a few) of my favourite items. I promise to return to the topic on 8th and tell you all about the shopping experience and what items I ended up purchasing!

Well it is not the only one you will EVER need, but it is probably the most adaptable evening bag ever made. And it has been on my mental wish list for a while but it keeps selling out too fast each time it is back in stock.
This is Charlotte Olympia Pandora Clutch with three exchangeable pouches that fit inside a see-through plastic case. The brand is super famous for outrageous and extremely stylish shoe range, but this bag is proving to be a competitor for the most inventive Charlotte Olympia item ever made.
For £439 you get three different clutches – definitely worth it! The only bad thing about this clutch – it will be hard to make up your mind about which one to wear today!

I’ve got so much love for this cool twist to classic satchel from Urban Outfitters (Online exclusive – £48):
1. It is spacious – large enough for A4 notepad.
2. It is box shaped which is very trendy at the moment.
3. It is snakeskin which is the hottest pattern of the season.
4. It has a top handle and a strap that will fit on the shoulder leaving your hands free.
5. And it is red which means we can match it to our lipstick for some ‘notice-me-I-am-fabulous’ look.
I am sold. Seriously considering moving it from my wishlist to my wardrobe especially in preparation for US road trip. Will let you know if it makes the cut ( of course it will, thank God for next day delivery).
