That press release continues:
“Marni’s collection for H&M has all the freedom and experimentation for which the label is renowned, with all-over prints in strong colours all intended to be worn together in layers that both match and clash.

The silhouettes are all Marni staples, with full pleated skirts, dresses, cropped trousers and Jacquard knit, and fabrics range from silk to crisp cotton poplin. To finish the complete look the collection also includes jewelry, shoes, bags and scarves.”
Look for the collection to hit stores March 8.
