Milan: Fashion Week – Marni S/S 2013. Firmness. Sparseness as elegance. The new Marni S/S 2013 collection is a weightless exploration of volume. Form is reduced to its pure essence, laid bare to expose the precision of the cut and beauty of the fabric.
Creative director Consuelo Castiglioni and global PR Karla Otto.

Marni S/S 2013. Straight and round are juxtaposed just as the front and the back are: a square top is paired with a flared skirt. Prints highlight and gently distort the neatness of the design. Checks and sequences of sliced dots have the hypnotic rhythm of Anni Albers Bauhaus experiment.
Marni S/S 2013 – Make-up. Tom Pecheux explains the make-up on camera. “It’s perfection like the clothes. Totally effortless and looks perfect with the Marni clothes.”
