did you see the marni pre-fall 2012 collection? i feel like this was swept under the rug a bit, or perhaps i wasn’t paying attention (probably the latter) – but this is one crazy collection. when i browsed through the different looks i felt like i was meeting someone’s eccentric old aunt. you know, the outspoken one with the radical dress sense who embarrasses all the old folks at family gatherings (but who all the young kids love). i guess marni has always been that way.
i haven’t been covering the fall shows lately, mainly because i already overdosed so heavily on the new york & london fashion weeks. but i have been keeping an eye on them – and paid particular attention to the details at marni & missoni’s collections in milan. i have always had a soft spot for these two italian design houses, mostly because they are the favourites of my great friend amy who has the best taste of anyone i know (look out for her ‘things i like right now’ later this month.) so these are for you amz. this winter will be all about colour, are you okay with that?
