MFW: Marni SS13

Tuesday, 25 September 2012
On the penultimate day of Milan Fashion Week Marni steered away from  its prints and colour-blocking and this season focused on lightness in  fabric and volume. While there was still plenty of graphic  juxtaposition for its core customer, designer Consuelo Castiglioni  instead preferred monochrome colours.

Outfits in solid hues captured the pared-down mood of the season, such  as the lightness of a white sundress. There were jacquards and some prints in coats with matching skirt, but these again were light and  more idiosyncratic than obvious.

"It was about being fresh and clean, a play on proportion and volume  but in a controlled way," explained Consuelo Castiglioni of this  season's direction, which also took with it peplums of various layers  to grace hips on lab coats and luxe black dresses, she told Vogue  online.
