Sure, fast fashion designer collaborations make news. But do they still make sales? Despite the buying frenzies of 2011, there were also plenty of returns in stores and items put up for sale on EBay from last year's Missoni for Target and Versace for H&M collections. And the Giambattista Valli for Macy's merchandise didn't seem to move much at all. The next big designer collaboration is Marni at H&M, debuting on March 8. Marni designer Consuelo Castiglioni has a knack for color and print, but her designs are quite avant garde, which could make this collection H&M's most esoteric yet -- after Comme des Garcons, that is. Sofia Coppola directed the ad campaign. We'll see who lines up for the launch. Pictured is a look from the Missoni for Target line.
