Marni explores the interconnection between different experiences that defines an urban style for the latest collection
The Marni Pre-Fall 2018 collection is where the utility dictated by the present lives alongside a fascination for the primitive.
The essential garments of the city wardrobe are reorganized and placed in a global context where there are no longer any borders, and where functionality is at the service of an eternal journey between mental and physical worlds.
Contrasting macro stitching highlights the contours of the classic trench coat, the city coat is played down with colourful inserts. The suit is a ritual tunic, with hanging strands that point toward the handmade. The zebra print trades tribal for the elegance of a silk dress.
The silk dresses are spontaneous constructions, a play between primitivism and naïvety, where vivid colours amalgamate with floral prints, collisions between pop and romanticism.
The shoes are either running sneakers but with flatform soles, or clogs in pony hair. The bag dilates into the dimension of a travel sack. The jewellery consists of precious souvenirs for remembrance or daydreaming.
