Fur accents and jewel-box ornamentation at the neck (and therefore drawing attention around the face) were everywhere this season in the form of brooches like those at Bottega Veneta, so deliberately placed that it was hard to tell if they were a separate item or part of the dress, fabulous fur collars , and knit snoods that offered the same idea, but for a more downtown clientele.

 
 
Furs were patchworked, collaged, and constructed in new, youthful ways that reenergized and reintroduced the idea of the fur coat to a new generation of women. And when it wasn’t full-on, it was an accent—whether as a detachable collar or trimming a sleeve, hem, or pocket.

I love that its tailored meets casual worn with the perfect accessories'. Its a  great care free casual look which has a young city girl vibe excecuted perfectly by sup
 
 
This marni collection was not all about the quirky the crazy and didn't focus on prints this time. The collection was all about strict precision and power. The clothes were so graphic and made a powerful statement. The fabrics were all so luxurious and were really worked in unique way such as the fabulous furs. There was an over sizing element and mens wear feel in coats,jackets and pants but overall it was fabulous a very tailored collection!!! The accessories were very desirable, very wearable shoes with gold accents also the bags were very beautiful in clean strict white leather or beautiful gold and black embroidery. The collection may have been strict,tailored precision and quite bold it still had the feel of a certain femininity the marni women's feminity!

And if you’re impatient like me, here’s a few sneak peeks of the ad campaign featuring Imogen Poots,photographed by Sofia Coppola in Marrakech and magazine scans!
