Marni – SS15
The silver shimmer of moonlight grazes our skin, its glow as soft as silk as we walk serenely through the garden in the dead of night. Our hands hover over plants and flowers, caressing bonsai leaves and chrysanthemum petals as they drift into focus. Our minds are, once again, consumed by animalistic instinct and visions of a more natural world.
For SS15, Marni became one with nature, presenting a collection of beautifully bold florals and cascading waterfall like frills at MFW. The show began with a range of garments that had been rendered in soft earthy tones, such as beiges, eggshells and whites and had drawn heavy influence from traditional Japanese cuts, reimagining everything from Judo trousers, Obi belts and Kimonos.
As the show progressed, vibrant florals began to take root in these earthy tones, blooming upon everything from asymmetric A-line dresses to clinically clean cut separates, consuming the collection in a vibrant array of daffodil yellows, tulip reds, moss greens and brilliant golds.
Stunning patchwork pieces made up the latter segment of the collection, piecing together jet-black floral embroidery, mosaic like mirrored tiles and all manner of elaborate jeweled embellishments.
The collection is definitely one of our favorites from MFW, with its effortlessly impactful, nature fueled aesthetic and its beautifully juxtaposed clean lines and fabulously over the top prints.
