Marni and the colour of Italy with a touch of Germany

Consuelo Castiglioni, the designer of Marni surprises us during the Milan Fashion week. Her collection is modern and totally unexpected. What looks heavy is airy, embroideries on jacquard seems light.  Neoprene is used for dresses, everything has big volumes, furs are geometric composition with a touch of contemporary art. Consuelo took inspiration from the german artist Magnus Plessen whose style consists in adding and removing sections of paint to define shapes. We will soon see this colourful collection in the roman shop of via Bocca di Leone 8. One of my favourite in town.
