Marni Designs Chairs, Employs Colombian Former Inmates To Produce Them

We have officially entered the realm of designer everything: Marni, the high-end Italian brand known for its offbeat prints and artsy-homely styling, has made their way into the furniture industry with a 100-piece collection of metal chairs covered by multicolored woven plastic, and they managed to do some good in the process. The fashion house…

10 Celebs At The Marni For H&M Launch Actually Wearing Marni For H&M

The Marni for H&M launch party was attended by a who’s who of Hollywood It Girls — way more than 10, in fact. Some wore fancy-pants, high-end Marni (Dianna Agron, Lily Collins, and Rashida Jones, for example), while others wore the lower-priced line that the event was celebrating. The latter is who I focused on in this slideshow,…

30 Chic & Artsy-Fartsy Pieces From Marni For H&M

A sign that I am not a real “fashion” person is that I do not generally like or appreciate the Italian label Marni. And if you don’t gush and die over Marni then you cannot really be considered a fashion person. I think it’s in the rule book. But that’s fine by me because I…

H&M Announces Marni As Its Newest Collaborator

We’ve always wanted to like Marni — the high-end, highly structured Italian designer line. But truthfully, it’s hard to imagine how to wear many of designer Consuelo Castiglioni’s boxy, somewhat masculine creations. Still, we’re curious to see how Castiglioni’s collaboration with H&M might turn out, especially because she claims, rather unconvincingly, that “everything has the…

Is Re-Releasing Collections Lazy Or Awesome?

So it would seem that the biggest trend in retailing since the designer collaboration is the re-release. In the past few weeks we’ve heard of three major brands doing replays of past collections. Target is coming out with a “greatest hits” range from previous Go International lines while Marni and Marc by Marc Jacobs have…

The Frisky’s Chic On The Street: Venice Oct. 5th 2009

It’s bold. It’s colorful. It makes me want to throw my entire wardrobe out the window and start from scratch! Annalena stood out on the walkways of Venice with a Marni day coat that is, in one word, glorious. Where does one go in such aesthetically pleasing attire? Why, in this case, she was o…

How To Rock A Headscarf A La The Marni Runway

While designers in New York and London were sculpting elaborate hairdos this year at Fashion Week, Marni went the opposite route by covering it all up—just goes to show you that you that sometimes revealing less is sexier. At the designer’s summer 2010 runway show in Milan, models sported bright, printed headscarves and chunky jewelry,…

Quick Pic: Genius Or Crazy

Parts of this outfit I think I could pull off: chunky necklace, red belt, striped skirt. Parts of this outfit I do not think I could pull off: super-cropped top, green see-through overlay. [Marni fashion show; Milan Fashion Week; 9/24/2008]…

Would You Let A Friend Leave The House Wearing This?

This week, designers in Milan are showing their collections for fall/winter 2008 (basically, what we’ll be wearing once summer is over. It seems so far away, doesn’t it?). Milan Fashion Week is a time for experimentation and creation, so we’ve selected eight looks from eight designers and want to hear whether you would wear them.
