A blood red runway that made way for dresses fit for a Game of Thrones heroine – take a closer look at Marni AW15.
MFW: Marni AW15
Blood Red Beauty
I first heard about Marni when they collaborated with H&M. It was a huge success, so I didn’t manage to buy or even see it. Curious about the craze, I looked into the brand and found sweet patterns, regal silhouettes and (forgive me for using this word) quirky vibes. Since then, things have gotten more serious.
The AW15 blood red runway featured dresses fit for a Game of Thrones heroine attending a winter wedding. Floor length skirts, modern cloaks and capes all made the fairy tale feel as real as the pain in your foot from roaming Milan. Cobblestones don’t mix well with heels, but they do fit this royal aesthetic. Sleeves were fabricated from fur, worn long and oversized; waistbands came in sand hued snakeskin, as did bags and shoes; and outerwear came long and printed, matching trousers peeping beneath.
Fur was big in this show, and though I always hope it’s fake, it looked too good to be so. Huge fur pockets were placed strategically on the pelvis, upon wide-leg culottes and sleeveless long-line jackets and the fur sleeves contradicted the architectural norms of the coat. This collection was for the warrior princess and being covered from head to toe never looked so hot; I wish I could bring this collection back to sub zero New York.
