Be gone bold prints! Away geometric confusion! Be rested, 50′s silhouettes.
Marni has entered a new era.
Although they still did manage to sneak in a few pairs of their signature child-like anti-fashion flatforms, their Fall 2013 is strikingly different to the collections past. Not only did they show a sombre palette of masculine blacks and browns, sending their tertiary brights on hiatus, but Consuelo Castiglioni has chosen to reveal prints of a woody hinterland on a very straight-up-and-down silhouette. Great for hiding those big Milanese lunches.
Castiglioni’s ‘Austere but Romantic’ collection was softened by way of fur trimmings, velvet and brushed mohair. It was beautiful Winter texture’s all over, just as it should be, making this my favourite Marni collection.One undeniable ‘FAIL’ for me was the Yeti-style ugg boots that aren’t attractive anywhere, not even on Catherine McNeil, and therefore not worthy of showing you on this column. It will damage your retina’s.
p.s Moda Maison loved seeing Sydney model fave Eva Downey debut on Marni’s runway. She also walked for Jonathan Saunders and Christopher Kane in London this season. Hot to trot.
