Masterclass in dressing: Marni Edition Winter 2012

I know everyone has seen these new Marni looks already, but I do love them dearly so here they are again. Inspirations include golf, rockabilly and deco shapes, and I am a card-carrying member of the Marni fanclub, so really it’s a no brainer for me.

Classic silhouettes are given a slightly bananas/art teacher twist with juxtaposed fur, plastic, neon and – obv – lots of neoprene and print. Click on the pictures to really gorge yourself in the hi-res details: that resin bow! The tiny tasteful star between the round beads! The tassels on the zips!

I’ve talked before about my fear of the art teacher look – it’s such a perilously fine line between Marni quirk and batshit crazy person on the bus with a problem. I know some people look at Marni layering and automatically freak out, but to me the above is a masterclass in how to do it, and do it well. Look #1 and #3 are just works of art to me.

Dreamy, the lot of it.
