Marni’s designer, Consuelo Castiglione, worked on the theory of the attraction of opposites in her upbeat spring/summer collection in Milan this morning. She used non-traditional textured fabrics and exaggerated layers for the collection.

Light and shade, opaque and transparent, pale and dark, geometric and floral; all the seemingly contrasting elements were delightfully absorbed into pieces with the signature eccentric Marni aesthetic and a new emphasis on Pop Art.

Differently textured fabrics and yarns such as jacquard and organza, embroidered lace and net, or fine cashmere and cotton, met and mingled in a chic and unexpected interplay.

I LOVE this collection; but I always love Marni collections. It is very Italian, and it very much matches my style sensibility. The overall cookyness of the collection blended with the always chic style of Castiglione is a hit in my opinion.
