‘’Amplification, exaggeration, gentle distortion.’’ Designer Consuelo Castiglioni is using for Marni’s new collection the same brilliantly bold associations with which the Italian House has used his admirers.
And starting from this very premise of maximising the artistic content and quality of its pieces, Marni juxtaposed onto austere shapes and primary, unelaborated, pragmatic colours – white, grey, black and green – just a few slips into blue and red, like true freeing glimpses. Freeing as well as windows into the genuine richness of its tops, trousers and skirts apparently so cold and restraint: the fabrics used are felt, alpaca and silk, while dominant artisanal ornaments and painterly visual elements abound.
