MILAN, Jul 2, 2012/ — Graceful yet full of modernistic tension, the Marni Resort 2012-2013 Collection features neat and crisp silhouettes.
Spirited and personal, there is a sense of risk with the taste for sophisticated restraint. Constructions are graphic, with curved volumes defining an archetypal feminine line. Cropped lengths and abstract details taken from the Western repertoire insert an element of dissonance.
Rounded skirts are paired with straight blousons and overcoats closed with snap buttons, flat golden studs outlining the collar. Loose trousers worn with mannish shirts have an air of slouchy sophistication.
The color palette is individual: tones of midnight blue, tobacco, rust, ochre are interspersed with nuances of dusty pink, light blue, pale grey, watery yellow. Prints are rhythmic, merging geometries, organic forms and blooming flowers. Firm and precious, fabrics have a compact hand: cotton poplin, faille, silk twill, technical taffetas.
