Marni Catwalk Fashion Show Milan Womenswear FW2014
“Amplification, exaggeration, gentle distortion,” Consuelo Castiglioni wrote in her show notes. And exaggerated it was… Furs and feathers to the max, busy prints, bright shades, large glasses, feral hair.. Marni has a lottt going on for upcoming winter. But even though those prints almost hurt our (Sunday morning) eyes and that larger than life spotted fur coat won’t find a home any time soon Castiglioni presented us with lots of solid fall/winter style ideas. She made us think of ruffled dresses and corsets paired with jumpers, she showed sporty neopreen can be sexy and proved bright pink can be ultra chic. The finale of full on fur ensembles and feather (Dutch duck) details might be a little too provocative for Marni’s clientèle, for this show they clearly worked. Besides, in our mind we’re already combining exaggerated bits and pieces from this Marni show and matching those with our everyday wardrobe at home. Mix ‘n match; a fashion motto suitable for any designer’s creations, but particularly with such an outspoken collection as today.
