Although the Marni aesthetic is far from a favourite for me, there's something so absolutely endearing about the way the pieces are presented. From the quirky prints to the unconventional cuts, the brand just oozes with effortlessness. What makes the brand even more charming is the fact that it started as a recreational project and quicly evolved into a serious player in high fashion. That's what I call credibility.

I can really live without this whole collection pretty much ... and those knit teardrops flopping around are disturbing, they remind me of a dairy cow

I agree and so much of Milan has been like this. I think the problem is the late 50's, early 60s based silhouette (literal or slightly oversized to varying degrees). It's just so dowdy.

And when combined with fussy embellishment like the beading here for instance, it's just too unreconstructed lady to feel modern or relevant.

At least this wasn't quite so bad as Aquilano e Rimondi yesterday where the models looked ridiculous in the overwrought gilded garb of their grandmothers who lunch. What the hell happened to 'ease'.

I mean I can understand that the over 50's market might have been a bit ignored for the last few seasons but if you're going to appeal to that sector why not cast older models. Putting young girls in straight-laced matronly attire without any element of deconstructive irony just looks silly.

All these sentiments are confirmed in the style.com video... and I am a bit sad that they choose a more controlled, safe and matchy-matchy aesthethic for this collection, but these are still beautiful clothes with great quality. But why ignore the tradition? The error is in the execution... Where's the kooky Marni girl? Did she grow up already?
