Inspired by the German abstract art of the 1960s, the limited edition collection by Marni blends geometric patterns and high-voltage colors in three different repeated combinations, focusing on the primary hues of red, blue and yellow. The initial ‘M’ is also a recurring theme throughout the series, appearing on the pieces as a bold motif in various sizes.
The 11-piece collection includes a gilet, a woollen mini-skirt, a cotton t-shirt with a contrasting trim, a pair of patterned socks and a nylon anorak with rib-knit cuffs at the neck. Accessories include a silk scarf, a block-color wallet, resin and gold earrings and a brooch and charm in the form of the house’s signature letter ‘M’. A Marni Pocket Bag has also been revamped in the three colors of the collection.
This is not the first time Marni has taken inspiration from the art world — last year the Italian house chose to incorporate its Autumn/Winter 2015 collection into art shot by Boston-born, UK-raised photographer Jackie Nickerson. It also teamed up with Brazilian artist Véio on a sculptural project called “Becoming Marni” for the 56th edition of the Art Biennale in Venice.
The Marni Blinky Collection will be available from Marni.comuntil January 72017, priced from $90 – $1,760.
