In little more than a decade, Consuelo Castiglioni’s label Marni has become a byword for innovative Italian design, charming its way into fashion folklore with an eclectic vision of femininity. What began as a stint of fashion consulting for her husband’s fur and leather company, Ciwi furs (supplier to Prada and Moschinio), has developed into a business that has produced some of the most cultish items of the last few years and helped define contemporary notions of prettiness. Today the Italian fashion house loves a collaboration, lending their polka dots to Laduree for a limited edition collection of macaroons, dressing Coca Cola bottles in Marni bubbles and an H&M range. Not just a pretty face, Marni has a big heart and likes to use their international fame to do a little good, supporting sustainable coffee in pretty packaging with Lavazza and hiring Columbian ex-cons to hand make the colour blocked chairs and tables for their furniture range.
