Sofia Coppola's short film for Marni's colab with H&M is everything you'd expect - chock full of pretty, good sound track, great clothes
but little apparent substance. Don't get me wrong I love me some SofieCopes, but the poor little rich girl schtick is wearing a bit thin. Ohh, I'm so lonely. Ohh, my dad's so famous. Ohh, I'm so bored in Tokyo. That being said, I still get excited about just about everything she puts out there because yeah, I love pretty stuff. And no one does pretty better than Ms. Coppola.
Marni on the other hand isn't known for conventionally pretty clothing. With a focus on bold pattern, boxier cuts and bright color Marni has more of a cool-unattainable-art-student-next-door sort of vibe (which I dig). This collection for H&M encapsulates all the Marni-esque bits - chunky resin bangles, big blue polka dots, flat sandals, quirky embellishments - perfectly. And after seeing it cast in the warm glow of Coppola's lens I might even say it's pretty.
Sadly Austin has not been graced with H&Ms presence (and neither has the internet! C'mon online store!!) so for now I'll just have to lust after my favorites. Unless a kind New Yorker or Angelino wants to brave crowds to snag that leather number or bangle for me...
