marni!

12
I think at some point in my love affair with clothing I wanted to have an "effortless" looking style, but at this point I'm much happier in lots of jewelry and layers than a tee shirt and skinny jeans ("model-off-duty style!") even if it's obvious I spent a ridiculous amount of time putting it together. Consuelo Castiglioni, however, finds a place between these two that is just right -- not easy-breezy and not overkillingly detailed, just fun. The colors and prints are kind of blowing my mind and the mild pirate-beach feel is perfect for making the collection more distinguishably Spring.
Long live the house of Marni, and long live fun!

I wish people dressed that way in Public..or perhaps they do, just not in this tiny village I call home. (e__e);

I love the mis-match, and was the only one in school who dressed "funny" as they would say. I personally felt awesome :O. I was inspired by the Harajuku fashion in Tokyo...where they do roam the streets in about..10 layers of clothing. Haha. I've grown so lazy though now that I'm not in Highschool anymore. -sigh-

Bravo! I was hoping to death you would mention Castiglioni's collection. And a tee shirt and skinny jeans? Defintely effortless, but not as fun as playing dress up!

SO. said...

hhaahah its amazing how your words describe just that! and yeah, their clothes has a perfect medium between trying to hard and glamour. hahahah its awesome.

Chipcake said...

the little paragraph about you in the times 2 (uk newspaper) is so cute and brilliant hopefully it will attract more english readers like me

Anna said...

Those fabrics are impeccable
and the styling is so YOU.

I especially love the 1920's-ish sheath
with the embellishments, and the
gray floral lace skirt. Yum

Gorgeous!!!! Nude is the color for summer, and the prints are fantastic, one of the best shows in Milan!!!!:)

Gun Street Girl said...

I'd like to say I wouldn't do terrible things in order to own the leggings in the second panel of the second image, but that would be a lie.

Anna said...

P.S. it's almost as if you made the first image look like dainty paper dolls. all ya need is a perforated line drawn around each..

Cassandra Watsham said...

Oh, yes, highly agree, your Highness. A perfect balance, and my dream work wardrobe!

Stylish Goddess said...

Love the head scarves.Marni has chosen brilliant colors that really stood out on the runway!

Just wanted to say I love your blog Tavi. I got my copy of Love magazine a month ago or so and that's how I read about you. You write so well and I enjoyed your video in an earlier post - wonderful expressive moves!

Clare said...

The colours in this collection are beautiful. I feel like I would wear them in a rowing boat in the middle of the sea, do you know what I mean? They just seem kinda dreamy. The plaid trousers are really cute (and I don't even wear trousers!)

Jess-Gab said...

I was going to try and say something all analytical about the clothes, but at the ed of the day they're just all amazingly gorgeous!
I spent ages looking at the marni section in Selfridges last time I went to London (if only I could afford it..haha.) Its really timeless.

Anyway, I've just finished a project, designing outfits for ten bloggers- inspired by their personal style. You were one of them!
I'll be emailing you a picture and scan of the designs tomorrow, but I only have time to leave a quick comment now. I did a post of all of the designs on my blog, hope you'll take a quick look..

You'd be right at home in London!! Marni's spring 2010 line reminds me of everything that's going on here!!

hollybrick said...

fwiw your resistance to "effortless" is one of my fave things about you.

☺chocolateDr0pp.. said...

yeah dont think about it and then you have art..when you think about what you want then ur not that creative...

vint junky said...

Marni can do no wrong in my eyes, i have a huge soft spot for them as they've always had such a distinctive layered look and a marni dress was the first piece of designer clothing i ever tried on ... just wish i could have afforded it!!

Top collage, red dress, one arm.
Effortless.

Livy Magee said...

my favorites where . . .

tomorrow. i am always looking for the perfect balance too.
