I had the pleasure of visiting Marni's lovely installation during Milan Fashion Week. The venue was pretty much I had expected. Clean, minimalist and modern! Qualities that Marni has embodied for two decodes now!
There were several screens mounted around the lovely space displaying a virtual catwalk show. As the guests leisurely browsed Marni's latest collection, yummy treats and champagne were constantly on rotation. I could have stayed longer but unfortunately due to my crazy schedule I had to bounce after half an hour. But I had a wonderful time. I eagerly perused the entire place. I even casually tried on some of the pieces and constructively exchanged sentiments with the Marni crew as well as some of the attendees. The reversible jacket has to be my favorite article from Marni's latest collection. I love its versatility and functionality. Wear it as a casual jacket during the day. Then, in the evening, transform it to an edgier conversation piece by reversing it.
Every season my penchant for Marni has been growing thanks to Creative Director Consuelo Castiglioni's modern, wearable ensembles. And so far, this has been my favorite menswear collection from the successful Italian fashion house. Looks like I might consider wearing graphic prints and bold colors after all upon seeing this collection.
