Marni SS21 Vol. 1 Offers Joyful Liberation by Embracing Reality

By whitewall

August 11, 2020

Marni’s Spring/Summer 2021 Vol. 1 collection managed to shine under extreme circumstances, both in production and its atypical presentation. A return to brand roots combined with progressive views for the future laid the foundation for the season, following Francesco Risso’s creative direction.

While focused on a stylistic mindset that has been stripped down to reality, Risso offered a positive embrace of the times, infusing the collection with a sense of joyful liberation through items like loose-fitting dresses, grungy mohair sweaters, and boxy tailoring. Retro hues of blue, orange, and yellow colored clashing prints like bubbly flowers and lips. It reminded us of garments worn when the idea of free love was taking over—like a long dress in a multicolored daisy print. Other season staples included elements like asymmetric hemlines, dada tracksuits, graphic blocks, and a cross between tailoring and sportswear.

Capturing the collection with a unique methodology, each model took part in virtual fittings and styled themselves before a FaceTime photoshoot with Jack Davison. The resulting imagery reflected the current times as much as the clothing. If one can see past the distortion, something quite free and beautiful might be revealed.
