I love the Marni aesthetic. There is something effortlessly chic about the parred down simplicity. This is largely due to Consuelo Castiglioni’s bold vision. For someone well-known for her excellent use of geometric print, Castiglioni shows that she can do sophisticated minimalism with the best of them, and all without losing any of her trademark quirk. And while I love the luxury and gravitas of high fashion, I am also a major fan of the “dramatic clean sweep”. There is something quietly powerful about Castiglioni’s exemplary control. Her craft is absolutely exquisite, resulting in pieces that move in a most alluring manner. I love how she has taken traditionally heavy fabrics like bonded leather and damask cotton and repurposed them into effortless spring looks. In fact, this entire collection showcases pieces with an improbable lightness. I am particularly taken with how the fabric seems to envelop the body, allowing for an elegant ease of movement. The overall impact is quite charming.
