MARNI JEWELS AFFIX A FREEZE FRAME TO STARDUST AND THE GEMMED COLLECTION TRANSFORMS AT DIFFERENT VIEWS UNDER A MASH-UP OF PETALS, METALS AND CLIPS.
It’s a jewellery collection aware of everything Marni designer Consuelo Castiglioni reflects in her clothes through structure, shape and bursts of colour to shake up a celebrated, spontaneous style. ‘Gardens’ have been a theme to pop in and out of Marni’s universe and this one stitches leather petals that drip over the mixed-metal shapes, all of which fall in perfect misalignment. In synergy with Marni’s Resort 2016 collection, the myriad of layers, pastels, richly dimmed and vintage printed pieces offer the jewels a step up. Varnished strass earrings double up their tropical relief as clips sparkle with a costume tinge. Geometry sees another point of view through symmetrical spheres that drop from the lobes. Tubular metals coat ropes and shiny shapes back up some floral gloss, suspended in a glint of gold. Stopping to stargaze makes a comeback.
