Marni Spring Summer 2013

I started off a bit frustrated with this Marni collection because it showed a bunch of geometric prints that seem to be present in every single one of their collections. But I then began to wonder if that might be a good thing, given that those prints are not as “extreme” as a brand like Mary Katrantzou, I started to think that perhaps the Marni customer goes back to them year after year for those very patterns. Anyway, just a thought. The rest of the show was pretty fantastic, featuring gorgeous, simple cuts and a very beautiful floral print.

I love…

leather shirts. I dig them.

when garments, like this top, look like they’ve been cut from the most simple pattern pieces and just hang so perfectly. And deep V necks, I love those too (just never, ever on guys.)

that this looks like it could have been any season of Marni, because they almost always look the same. Although, perhaps that is a good thing?

    i like the leather stuff, too.
    and i think that nowadays it’s quite a compliment when a brand is recognizable.

    Great thought. But when will Marni prints become the synonym of the brand as in Missoni? I am not sure that’d be soon. I wrote about those geometrical stains too. They remind me some Scandinavian folk vases actually! I saw it in an editorial comparing fashion with influences in Velvet, but that goes for Marni, too.
