I love love love !!!! 2020 Spring/Summers Marni Collection, The looks definitely stood out in a sea of dark runways. The pieces remained true to the spirit of the house’s last few collections which have taken on an artistic yet playful approach by taking on the aesthetic of a canvas. This season’s art came in the form of bold fauvist -inspired florals, combined with hints of tropical jungleqsue inspiration. Prints were used as a tribute to sustainability to communicate the importance of eco-sustainability. All of the fabrics for the collection were upcycled, along with the use of organic cotton, and recycled leather for accessories. Who says eco-fashion has to be boring?

We can always depend on Stella Jean to serve us fierce and exciting prints. Jean draws on her Haitian – Italian roots as a major source of inspiration; Which always makes for an interesting combination of bold and colorful looks combined with strong Italian tailoring. As of recent, Jean has taken up a strong interest in sustainability and leveraging fashion as a cultural bridge to promote the craftsmanship of regional cultures; as a means of promoting trade and economic development. For this collection, Jean collaborated with the Kalash people of Pakistan to revive an ancient embroidery tradition on the verge of dying out. The flowy silhouettes along with the floral prints combined with ethnic touches make for an interesting variety of looks that I will definitely be sporting this summer !!
