Marni Fall Winter 2012

I haven’t looked at the Marni for H&M photos yet (I’m never a big fan of these overhyped collections) so perhaps I am missing part of the story as I critique this collection. I also know that Marni, aside from their accessories, is never going to blow me away, as it simply is not my style. But I can appreciate the aesthetic, sometimes. The retro contemporary looks Consuelo Castiglioni sent down the runway looked fairly nice, but her main silhouette, a dropped waist coat, looks bulky and unflattering. Even if you are the Marni type, who probably doesn’t favour the whole bodycon look, I still don’t think you want to look fat. And most of the models did.

I love…

this look: the haircut, the glasses, the graphic top, the cropped trousers and the white socks. Contemporary retro at its best.

I loathe…

a highly unflattering coat. I am always surprised when the models look chubby. Imagine what a real person will look like.

more of these horrible silhouettes. What happened at the fittings?

that with all the new technology and techniques used in fur, Marni has still managed to make it look very heavy and bulky.
