I HEART MARNI HEART JAPAN


After the winter 2014/2015 collection I thought Marni could not wow-me at the same level again; but today I discovered that I was pleasantly wrong.  Their S/S 2015 collection is really to die for. A perfect mix of Japanese style with trademarks of this Italian fashion house, like embellishments, patchwork and lots of prints. Instead of celebrating the brand´s 20th anniversary, with revisiting all thirty nine past seasons, Consuelo Castiglioni decided to move on. That´s the other thing that made me to love this brand even more. The collection started with black and white tones that progressed into really radiant colours and florals. Shirts with extra-long sleeves, asymmetric wrap skirts, kimono-like dresses and A-line skirts with ruffles tied with judo belts are in “simple” plain colours in the first part, to continue with vivid colours and flower embroideries, appliques in the second one. Garments are made from the raw cotton and leather combined with silk, chiffon and cashmere. Accessories? They perfectly rounded up with the theme of the collection; flat flip flops, platform shoes with double straps, Japanese-inspired platform shoes with ribbons woven around the ankles, sandals with heel sculpture, geometric jewellery made of resin and wood, patchwork leather bag and two-tone leather bags with rigid handle. My wish list is back again.
