While many pre-fall collections felt like they were more suited for the summer than the colder seasons, the Marni collection feels like it’s all about the fall days, with mostly covered up skin, whether through midi skirts, harlequin-like cocoon coats or wool twill pants. The Marni pre-fall 2015 collection is spontaneous and expressive, as it mixes the colorful tactility of Nick Cave’s soundsuits with nods to men’s tailoring and hints of the 70s, pragmatism and embellishment, abstract shapes and military felts. A certain ease characterizes pieces that are combined with quirk and precision. From jacquard coats in festive colors of red and blue to the geometric, sharp brocade dresses, this collection creates a fluid play of opposites.
