Milano: Marni Fall - Winter 2010/2011 Collection

Marni Fall – Winter 2010/2011 Collection.  Defining a twisted and elegant mood the Marni Fall – Winter 2010/2011 Collection is severe and precise. Measured and more austere in character in cuts and proportions, lengths and volumes, textures and combinations.  The volumes are moulded into fabric.  Exposed constructions are emphasized inside out; double and fused darts gain aesthetic importance. The colours are dense matte and uneasy.

Note: Consuelo’s jewellery; essential hand-made necklaces, sculptural assemblies of shimmering metal cabochons.  Eclectically designed chains fused and decorated with layers of enamelled metal drops and horn discs.

Backstage at Marni. Hair stylist, Paul Hanlon was inspired for the hairstyle by old 1950’s mannequins in shop windows, “Though a bit more chic and done-up.” He explains, “It’s as if they have gone to a hair salon, had their hair done and then got into a convertible and the wind blew out the hair.” He concludes.  

Backstage at Marni. The make-up was designed by Tom Pecheux, which he described, “It’s a mix of masculine and feminine.  The masculine; is the strong brow and kohl eyes.  The feminine; the way to apply the colour, it’s monochrome, like a deep lake that you can jump into.  The lips are copper-red and well drawn, very ladylike and heart shaped, the colour has been erased a bit, especially at the corners.”
