Marni

Highlights from yesterday’s shows: textural details–some subtle, some not–reigned supreme at Marni, MSGM and Salvatore Ferragamo.

Marni Spring 2015

At Marni, the show opened with muted looks like a minimalist top and flowy pants cut from crinkled off-white fabric and cinched with a sweater-knit judo belt for a splash of contrast.

Megan is making florals look fierce! A bold floral is a must for fall, and I am totally into this peachy, tapestry-inspired pattern, especially when paired with a modern moto jacket. Minimalist accessories and makeup keep this look clean and chic, with a little bit of edge. The ultra-sleek oxfords are icing on the cake.

Fleury looks quite the Parisienne in London: Her striped crop top and full skirt perfectly embody vintage French flair. While black and white is a popular color combination this Fashion Week, pastel pink is one of the major emerging colors and Fleury’s mini Fendi is the perfect shade. Patent leather ankle boots add just the right amount of shine and textural contrast.

Runway Rundown: Marni

Every so often a designer throws caution to the wind and completely re-examines what it is that makes a dress a dress, and a jacket a jacket. This was one of those playful times for creative director Consuelo Castiglioni, whose fall collection for Marni included plenty of quirk and creativity, from oversized, asymmetrical ruffles to graphic artwork splashed across a dress cut with exaggerated biceps. Her point of view has never been stronger—or more courageous.

Another day, another picture of Veronica! This Romanian beauty has such lovely understated style. She’s a master of color and feminine silhouettes.

I’ve seen hundreds of black leather skirts here at Fashion Week, but this pleated oxblood version is a standout. Her knotted plaid adds a touch of retro casual flair and balances out the heaviness of her leather skirt.

Lookbooks are one of the best parts of the resort season, which kicked off earlier this month. It’s fun to see the different models and settings the designers choose, like Joan Smalls on a rainy city street for Givenchy or Hanne Gaby Odiele against stark white walls for Theyskens’ Theory. We’ve culled a few of our favorite shots from the new collections below.

Marni + Romina Quirós

The latest brand/artist collaboration puts the spotlight on Romina Quirós, an Argentine illustrator whose elegant, minimal drawings appear on fall accessories from Marni. To celebrate the partnership, creative director Consuelo Castiglioni had panels featuring Quirós’s drawings installed in the company’s Milan showroom.

 

Quirós’s creative process is as simple as her artwork: she begins with a black blot on the page, and from there, playful characters emerge. Check out her work on this leather-trimmed iPad sleeve.
