Marni Spring/Summer 2015

January 28th, 2015


Renowned for their eclectic take on traditional menswear, Italian label Marni instantly made an impression on the world of fashion with their first collection in 1994.

Now a mainstay of the Milanese couture scene, Marni was founded by Consuelo Castiglioni with the ethos of making exciting, liberating garments, something she does with veritable ease with her bold use of print, colour and fabrics.

Spring/Summer 2015 remains faithful to this creative approach, with rich yet relatively sedate hues of navy, grey and burgundy enhanced by way of dynamic colour blocking, geometric patterns and anatomically-informed paneling.
