    “Since joining, Francesco has taken on every bit of Marni’s DNA“ are they fooling themselves?

    Is weird that I want to hold like a funeral for Marni among like 99% of other brands and put them to rest. This is getting to be too much. Starting to convince myself we all died 2 years ago and are in hell lol

    I guess the sales have been working? It would be hard to justify keeping someone during these times unless they are selling quite well.

    This is great news for Marni hardcore customers...because they will be able to save a lot of money, avoiding nowadays crap, to buy interesting vintage Marni pieces!

    I haven’t seen many people wearing marni. I guess he’s doing something well. I kinda respect otb giving time to it’s designers.
    This designer however hasn’t got me convinced at all. The worst kind of pretentious. I wouldn’t even use these clothes for diy rags.

    Maybe Ms. Wintour have a say in this because beside her, I don't see a lot of people wear Risso clothes anyway.

    This is why OTB maybe slightly better than other conglomerates. Because only Mr. Rosso can tolerate designers that in the first 3 years. Same thing with John Galliano, wasn't his Marigela finally started to make profit at the end of 2019 and that wasn't because of the clothes but the Munity perfume. Can not say the same thing about LVMH and Kering cause if you don't triple the profit in your first 3 years then bye bye, lol.

    I want to like his risk-taking attitude and defiance in a time of nothing but blandness...but so many of his shows have terrified me. He demonstrates you can keep working in big brands without having any clue about what beauty means.

    I would love for him to shut me up with a terrific show in the future...but I won't hold my breath

    Good for him. We don’t need another unemployed designer out there I guess.
    I hope he stops with his Art-School design project tho.
    Their menswear is doing well apparently even if some of the womenswear crowd. But I’ve came across some of the womenswear lately and the commercial pieces do have some Marni cute prints.

    LVMH and Kering at some points were like this too. If you think about the creative peak years of Kering, only Gucci and BV were profitable. Balenciaga started to be profitable in 2007. I think YSL became profitable a year later. Stella was never meant to be a big house And while the houses made money, they did not have the cash-cow beauty business to pump their sales.

    If you look at LVMH, it was also the same. Except for Vuitton, Fendi (and Dior), they really took a long time to find the right vision for every house.

    When you passed 1B or are near that, it changes the nature and expectations of the business.

    Everybody loved Clare’s Couture for Givenchy but nobody bought her clothes or bags...

    I think maybe he's doing something right for Marni.
    We look at the brand differently from them, we look at the collection from a different point of view.
    For example, my boyfriend buys Marni's clothes. He notice the change of the design, but he still likes it and think it's quite Marni.
