Marni was originally launched as a fur brand, but has evolved so far beyond that today. In the words of OTB – the fashion group that purchased the brand in 2015 – “Marni celebrates individuality through an unpredictable visual language of graphic rigor”. Marni is a youthful brand with a playful spirit that likes to experiment with materials, colors and prints as well as shapes.
Francesco Risso was appointed creative director of the brand in 2016 when Consuelo Castiglioni exited after 24 years at the helm. Risso came from Prada where he had been since 2008. Risso has pushed the brand beyond its limits but has still stayed truthful to the house DNA. For the Italian brands spring 2021 presentation, Risso planned a video presentation – a livestream across the world.
It’s safe to say that Risso and his playful approach to design has been a great addition to the Italian fashion house.
