pre-fall 2012

We need to talk about Marni

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 love all the pieces. the shoes, the bags, the belts, the prints, the sunglasses (!) … if you look at them separately it’s not all so mind-boggling. hey, i’m not knocking marni’s styling – it is what it always is, and it’s great. maybe don’t wear it all at once though? actually do, if you can. more power to you. i know Iris would. it would be like living in a Matisse.
