Like the menswear collection Consuelo Castiglioni showed at Pitti Uomo back in January, this was a more relaxed, optimistic vision for the Marni woman. It was elegant and luxurious but it also had a sense of optimism and fun.
The collection had a Betty Catroux feel to it. There were obi-like belts, in leather and python skin, which cinched in the waists. There was ponyskin and fur (of course), panels of it – on dresses at the girls’ midriffs, on the exterior of pockets on coats, on collars of coats, on arms of coats (which simultaneously looked elegant and gorilla-like) and, in one instance, on a shoulder strap. The chin-high roll-necks, large discos earrings and thick curly hair of the models which was pulled scruffily back gave a seventies vibe. The bell bottoms and colourful wallpaper-like patterned dresses only served to add to this vibe.
