Marni’s Take on Sport – Marni designer Consuelo Castiglioni took a deliberate step back from minimalism for the brand’s spring 2014 collection shown during the fifth day of Milan Fashion Week. The result is an outing of feminine silhouettes with a focus on the waist in shapes that play on volume and proportion. The designs are given sporty touches like visors, platform sandals and bomber jackets. Embellishments, far more than you typically see in a Marni collection, played an important role for spring in the form of tridimensional floral patterns, crystal embroideries and ribbons. Striking a balance between lightness and density, Castiglioni makes her very own brand of femininity for the new season.
