Here is one of my all time favorites, inspiring me yet again to be a creative force. Marni is the designer for the thoroughly modern Milanese.
Though elements were a bit all over the place, to me that is what makes Marni beautiful. You look at this collection and the clothes look like a canvas. With muted brights, neutrals and white, artsy prints and jeweled accents deliver typical, delightful Marni fare. I think Consuela Castiglioni mixed things up with her sculptured layering and experimental textures. I am so digging the heeled tights - not stirrups - they expose the sexy top of the foot. Silhouettes were mixed with pants, skirts and dresses but there was an overall boxy aura that still managed to be feminine. My only complaint: too many belts were in the mix. Zippers added a sporty element and fur hoods and trim added luxury. One day, one day, I will be able to afford Marni, and when I can I hope it's still this awesome.
