On Sunday Francesco Riso delivered his second collection at Marni. A collection inspired by Tim Burton’s take on Through the Looking-Glass (a.k.a. Alice in Wonderland – fortuitously on the same day Dolce & Gabbana presented their Queen of Hearts collection) that felt like a mash-up of styles and clothes. The silhouette was rather oversized, although the many tops did follow the female curves. Checks and floral prints met with sporty stripes. Shiny satin worked with details of fur on some of Riso’s robe inspired numbers.

Especially some highly embroidered pieces at the beginning of the show really transmitted the (de)construction message of the show and almost gave you the notion the models had been sewing them together themselves. The palette was Wonderland-y, make-up was bright, accessories were eye-catching (though probably less ‘chunky’ then Marni fans would like them to be).

Perhaps these were not the most desirable, musthave, ‘it’-designs, yet it was a clear statement from Riso’s part and a fresh take on ‘the Marni look’ we’ve been used to.
