Runway Report: Marni Fall 2015

Consuelo Castiglioni clearly wasn’t messing around when he put together his FW15 collection for Marni. Inspired by the cult classic Hanna, his girls were dressed for success in a Queen B inspired, “who run the world, girls” type of initiative. There was nothing delicate about these almost intimidating ensembles as the girls stomped it out in raw hemlines and military-esque outerwear complimented by flared trousers, elongated tunics, wide belts at the natural waist and cross-body handbags seemingly prepared to battle whatever the world throws at them.

The palette stayed mainly neutral – nudes, brown, black and white – with bursts of color thanks in part to a yellow snakeskin, snippets of burnt orange and power-hungry reds. The same way color was implemented throughout the collection could be said for fur. Used to emphasize different aspects of the wardrobe like sleeves, pockets, and collar while the turtleneck remained the staple piece of the collection seen no many how many layers an outfit contained.
