Recognised for its craftsmanship and experimental designs, Italian house Marni never fails to impress and surprise. For thirty years, it has advocated the art of handmade design, and with its heritage now in the capable hands of Francesco Risso, its current artistic designer, Marni is more sparkling and scintillating than ever. A lover of art in all its forms, he is committed to upholding Marni's authenticity in each of his creations. Determined to stand out through its distinctive use of colour, materials and volumes, the Marni style is now in a league of its own. Its success is all in the detail, with creative prints and patchworks of materials that surprise us with each new collection, giving them a discreetly eccentric feel. And its popularity continues. In a digital age of fast fashion and fleeting trends, the Marni style endures from season to season, through timeless pieces with bold designs and noble materials, to be worn in our day-to-day lives instead of flaunted on social media. One of the reasons Marni is the luxury brand of choice for those seeking a relaxed and liberated lifestyle, is its accessories. Because when it comes to the Italian brand, the daring is in the detail. Like the piercing punched through a moccasin loafer for this season's grungiest – and coolest – choice of shoe. Or Marni's red lettering featured on the platform of a pair of nylon Slip-Ons. Lambskin edging elevates the contours of the Trunk Envelope bag, while the incandescent red lining of the Relativity bag is a welcome surprise upon opening. But of all Marni's flagship accessories, the Trunk bag is undoubtedly the most cult piece. Sometimes structured, sometimes soft, it comes in a variety of colours and finishes, though always adorned with its golden ratchet clasp, subtly protruding from its flap. Opened with a gentle caress that testifies to the house's craftsmanship and technical expertise. Footwear by the Italian brand, made with the finest leathers around, is also a guarantee of quality. There's no shortage of options - with boots and loafers, sandals, sneakers, and more - but our favourite has to be the Pablo. With its oversized sole and toe cap, it is deliciously vintage and comes in sneaker and ankle boot form. Pure Marni.
