Backstage at Marni.
The iconic interaction of felt and fur, the metallic glints of large pleated sequins, treated fabrics and knits, geometric motifs and abstract floral jacquards create a style that is pure Marni. A concept of elegance suffused with golden shimmer. Given movement by the relief designs of the brocades, satins, boucles and matelasse that orchestrate the shifting nuances of colors that range from yellow to pink, from octane to pale green.
The in tensity and seductive allure is enhanced by new sunglasses with oversized curvaceous frames in two-tone or merging colors, matte or shinny.
