First look: Marni Cruise 2014/15
A super luxurious sporty appeal was explored for Marni's latest collection for mainline, after recently showing its specific evening offering. It was inclusive of activewear pieces such as polo shirts, voluminous trunk pants and cycling shorts.
That's right – cycling shorts. However somehow, Consuelo Castiglioni's genius craftsmanship has made the silhouette wearable, in real life. Mainly due to the fabrications, think silk duchesse and a crepe wool-and-cotton blends.
Castiglioni styled most of the looks with strappy running shoes and rubber wedges, which made things look effortless and lending an edge. There was also a mild 60s reference or two, thanks to a few clean mini-length dresses and slightly flared coats, plus Art Deco hues amongst rich jewel colours.
