It was less geometric shape and spare palette, more audacious prints and warm hues. The signature schoolboy-prep was still apparent but this season’s was a much more unruly sort in contrast to the ever-so-slightly dull swot of SS09.
Still, mine is a mixed reaction to a somewhat schizo collection. If Consuela was so keen on reintroducing the fun of fashion into Marni (her attempt was more than succesful…that all-over print shorts-suit) then why ever didn’t she go the whole hog instead of including boring, brown basics with no shape? Must be the heat.
