    Marni is my absolute favorite! Each print a work of art… Not really loving the nude anklet – although I suppose it’s fine for the runway!

    I’m so glad you posted pics from Marni. I don’t think the line gets enough attention. I love Marni for their whimsy and color combinations!

    The yellow is actually my favourite colour – the texture and sheer fabric is truly gorgeous – a great match, even her hair matches the dress, lovely eyeshadow

    WoW! Now this is how it’s done!

    Elegant or cool and casual. Exquisite fabric patterns mixed with the designers’ thoughtful eye for happy surprises, not that ridiculous look that tries too hard. Totally wearable. Can be worn by just about any age (lovely length on sleeves, looser cut that still looks sexy, attractive neckline and skirt/top lengths). Add all kinds of accessories or none. Oh, L O V E!

    But I can live without the socks.

    Nice front row work Scott. Thanks for bringing it to life!

    If I hadn’t seen your gorgeous photos I would have completely lost out on seeing the beautiful detailing and textures on the Marni collection that other pictures have not captured.

    Love it!

    I’m with Susie, above. I have never understood Marni’s appeal. The prints are fabulous, the construction superlative, but the fit is always oh-so-bag-lady.

    I love me some bold graphics and Marni collections always inspire. Even cultural references are modernized thoroughly in some way and reinvented to make subtle but strong statements. I only wish more of this came through in the men’s collections.

    I would love touching the fabrics. The game between textutre, prints and cuts is so creative and in the same time vintage.

    love u , i think the shoes and socks are more attractive lol

    The yellow & aubergine dress is interesting–the fabric really plays off the innocent peter-pan collar & simple, classic cut.

    Nice, lovely. A bit too edgy to have a total Marni outfit but still. Would like to see the bracelets and the bags closer.

    Beautiful pictures too.

    Kisses from Greece!

    I have say I do not like it. I do love the patterns and designs, but the fit.. it’s horrible. It’s just square, square, square. There are no curves or anything that can flatter the body of a woman, unless you’re a model.
    I think it’s unoriginal and almost a sign of.. I don’t know, lazyness? To create something that flatters a woman is much more of a challenge. Don’t you think this is almost like cutting straight lines out of fabric and sewing it together?

    Really no offence to the patterns, though. They’re beautifull, but a waste with a design like this.

  36. Kate

    September 28, 2011 at 4:23 am

    My vote goes with Susie & Moi. How many times do you see people on the street wearing something inspired by Marni? With you, Moi, on the bag lady fit, only works on the oh so skinny. However, still entertaining, so thank you Sart.

  37. PammieTaj

    September 28, 2011 at 7:23 am

    The socks? Not so much.

    The slips? Yes! I really like that the models are all wearing a slip, it’s this feminine little peak at the edge of the hem.

    I also like all those patterns.

    Afrika,20′s, a creative mixture .Not for all women but to the women who can wear it…what are you waiting for?

  39. Name*Nandso

    September 28, 2011 at 7:48 am

    I don’t get the nude slip at all. I love the detailing on the clothes; its exquisite. But agree that the fit is very unforgiving. You need to be stick thin to carry this off.

  40. 82Brute

    September 28, 2011 at 7:57 am

    These are exquisite garments but I HATE the socks. Your eye travels down the line of a luxurious leg and then hits this old lady trouser sock. It’s like putting a bran muffin in a glass of expensive champagne. Such a buzz kill.

    New, modern look, fabulous colours, design … love the shoes … not the ankle support hose … very very wearable

  43. Julia

    Susie, Moi, Nanda devi & Kate: I think Marni stands for another kind on sensuality, one that doesn’t have much to do with showing hips, a nipped waist or a plunging neckline. To me, a marni girls is fun, smart, a little dorky but very brave. She’s not too bothered about pleasing others and that is quite sexy IMO.

  44. Maude

    September 28, 2011 at 8:18 am

    Aw, Marni is just wonderful. You can invest in one of their pieces, and it just doesn’t go out of style cause it’s so holds it’s own. Just the way fashion ought to be!

    Such a great mix of color, pattern, texture. Also really love the silhouette of the collection.

    You can always spot Marni a mile away.



    September 28, 2011 at 11:18 am

    I’m with Susie, Moi and Nanda devi – lovely, gorgeous fabrics and patterns, cut and sewn to fit a sandwich board on the sidewalk.

    But my Granny would’ve loved the sox!

    Uh, I’m with Kate and the others, I hate this collection.

  52. Mark W.

    September 28, 2011 at 2:20 pm

    Fictional whimsy…really (except the last pic, that is HOT!)! What makes the composed looks more not believable are the ankle socks. However, the fits work with the exception of the green and striped boxy tops on the models in pictures 2 and 3. All imaginative outfits who’s individual pieces might work somewhere else. I do enjoy the photography–you picked great vantage point.

  53. Martine

    September 28, 2011 at 2:28 pm

    I agree with Julia. Its a little narrow minded to think that the only thing that flatters a woman is a nipped in waist, a low waistline, and outlining the bottom and the hips. If that was the case, then everyone would run to purchase that Sophia Varga collection from KMart. There is some definite sensuality in a straighter line, and frankly defined waists are getting a bit tiring. I don’t think you are meant to wear any designer look from head to toe, so keep that in mind too.

    socks with these shoes are just awful. I see nothing else despite the lovely clothes. it makes these women look like they just escaped from an asylum.

    I have two young children who love to watch the Disney channel. They have a spoof song on there called “Bringing Back the Socks and Sandals.” I have the song running through my head as I look at these photos.

    Is it just me or is the fit (not only in this show) this season a little more than unflattering to the female form?

    the prints and the colours are nice and all…

  58. PammieTaj

    September 28, 2011 at 10:42 pm

    I think different models would show the clothes to a better advantage. The clothes themselves remind me of the flappers of the twenties. A little less ease in the hips/bust probably would have done the trick and allowed the garments to move a little more and not just hang there.

    I love this collection from Marni. Every piece is a stand-alone knockout that could be added to any outfit and make special what you already own. I really appreciate what Consuelo Castiglione is able to do year after year in putting together a collection that is unique and not over-commercialized – that still has an authentic, hand-crafted feel.

    Photo #2 is my favorite – I love the green/burnt orange/white combination, but Arizona Muse looks pretty great in the first outfit too – that top is almost a piece of jewelry in its own right. The final dress is terrific too. Thanks for bringing us these runway shots!

    These socks are just awful, they ruin the whole look. They remind me of my grandmother. I looked at these pictures and all i could focus on were the socks!

    Love everything BUT the socks. When did old lady “compression” hose with open toed shoes become chic?

    I like it, even the socks. The first two dresses are a bit busy for my taste, but the second two are wonderful. And I agree with whoever said that women can be sexy and beautiful without emphasizing their figures. I agree that some cuts are unflattering on virtually everyone (for e.g. the blue curtain dress Sart posted a couple of days ago), but these aren’t so out there. It’s all about the specific image that you want to project.

  65. MarĂ­a Victoria Errazuriz

    September 29, 2011 at 12:29 pm

    Love the collection! And you can see Consuelo’s Chilean roots in the first looks, traditional Mapuche art and knit in the skirt bit. I can’t wait for my annual pilgrimage to Florence to get everything I’ve seen so far!

    I love certain aspects about the prints but the combinations make my head spin, and not in the good way. I am fascinated by the yellow/brown/black dress – now that is fantastic.

    The socks are crazy-dumb and ruining the whole effect of each outfit.

    It’s so interesting – in the context of a magazine spread or your site, these outfits work – but if I saw it on the street, I think I’d wonder if the person wearing it was crazy.

    Fascinating outfits though ….

    I love the socks. Gives each look a little context with a mid/post-war nod. That being said, I agree with Nanda: ultimately a waste of great patterns and color on a too-boxy shape. Even just a more natural waistline. I honestly don’t understand this trend towards disharmonious cuts that run totally counter to a human form— kind of undermines the whole art of fashion in a way.
