Marni Spring 2014 RTW (All images: Fairchild)

Italian brand Marni was founded by Consuelo Castiglioni back in 1994, who has  been the label’s designer ever since, and has made her designs renown of iconic luxury and edge through a modern approach to materials and silhouette, juxtaposing colour, exclusive prints and textures. Her latest Sping/Summer 2014 collection included straight mid-calf skirts, bandeau crop tops and trousers that were almost cartoonishly wide. You could almost split up the the collection to a ‘purist’ and ‘excessive’ group; the latter was speaking of even ruffles and beaded embellishments applied on bombers and pencil skirts matched with sporty bejewelled visors and statement neck-pieces. The group of ‘purists’ embraced floral prints applied on flowing sheers and a bunch of powder-coloured pieces on which ruffles only detailed the edges. By the way the speciality of the show was as – due to a technical problem – the catwalk show happened in proper silence yet resulted a concentrated appreciation towards the pieces in Milan. I guess we will be seeing the pieces in the coolest editorials quite soon!

Nude garments matched with colourful accessories and combined with flats or heels create the great harmony of elegant and sporty, fresh and stylish. Due to the muted prime colours, strong lips and highlighted eyebrows are both good to go, just as the hair worn in messy buns. The overall simplicity of the looks let the wearer to emphasise the natural beauty of the female body, as well as gives a sophisticated edge to the personality. The key lies in the balanced proportions of shapes and colours.

In der kommenden Frühjahr/Sommer Saison werden Simples und das Außergewöhnliche zu eins, der Schlüssel ist Einfachheit und fortschrittliche Frische. (more…)
