In 1994, Consuelo Castiglioni and her husband Gianni founded Marni. The brand’s urban and arty collections mix light-hearted colorful patterns and the so unique Italian refinement. Marni is all about bold colors and frank, original, geometric cuts.
With Chilean roots, Consuelo Castiglioni grew up in the Italian part of Switzerland. Her first intent was to reinstate fur’s glamorous status in a modern way. In 2003, she initiated the Marni Jewelry line, before collaborating with Estee Lauder to create the House’s first perfume.
In October 2016, Consuelo Castiglioni appointed Francesco Risso to replace her as Artistic Director.
In graphic yellow, green, blue, white and red silhouettes, the Marni Fall/Winter 2016 woman stands out, all at once colorful, playful, serious and sophisticated.
The volumes are as straight as they are extreme, with scale and wave prints, or oversized sequins.
