The preview of Marni Resort 2013 at Mall of The Emirates- Dubai, was deliciously inviting, with gourmet canapés and virgin mojitos and yet, the most delectable element of the evening was Marni’s accessories collection! Think leather pendants with cabochons and necklaces with stylized flower pendants encrusted with stones. Even the sunglasses had the distinct Marni personality with big visors- either geometric with a subtle metal rim or almond shaped and futuristic in layered acetate.
Within the resort collection, I particularly loved the bold prints and the curved volume seen in dresses- a very modernist approach. And the color palette is gorgeous! It’s warm and earthy, but with slivers of cool colours- tobacco, rust, ochre are interspersed with dusty pink, light blue, pale grey and midnight blue. The prints in the collection are rhythmic, merging geometries, organic forms and blooming flowers… Artsy, just like Marni meant it to be!
