The Marni fall 2013 collection was filled with contrasts. Not necessarily from a chromatic or textural point of view, but instead by the vision behind the newest looks which designer Consuelo Castiglioni described as being “austere but romantic,” adding that she wanted to ‘evoke a melancholy atmosphere’. While the minimalism that characterized the new season alternatives sure brought the impression of severity that the label based its new looks on, the options quickly showed plenty of luxurious vibes that made the new looks feel modern and spectacular.
Clean lines, well defined proportions and a multitude of luxurious fur and leather details which instantly brought an edgy allure to the new season looks. Though monochrome outfits dominated the scene, the Marni fall 2013 collection also featured a variety of fun prints which were clearly in line with the current trends. The abstract allure was put into the spotlight with a multitude of spectacular which impressed through their complexity and managed to become the main focal point of the new looks.
This season, the emphasis on the shoulder is more than noticeable and will prove a worthwhile option for fashionistas with an eye for thought-provoking looks. The Marni fall 2013 collection brought a combination of dark, versatile tones, making grey and black tones a fabulous allure which showed a preference for ultilitarian touches with a glam twist. The focus on classiness could also be sensed when taking a closer look at the new season options from a proportional perspective. The looks were fairly modest with knee-length dresses and coats dominating the new line and making textural touches steal the spotlight.
If at first the Marni fall 2013 collection brought plenty of fab minimalistic touches and outfits with a distinguishable modern allure, by the end the focus shifted towards high impact prints and luxurious alternatives which allowed the brand to finish off with full force with several covetable ensembles serving as inspiration for the new season looks.
The revival of the fur trend is not exclusive to Marni. The latest Max Mara fall 2013 collection also features fur coats, along with the Etro fall 2013 collection, while the Just Cavalli fall 2013 collection places a heavy accent on fur trim details.
