Marni presents a collection of 100 chairs made in Colombia by ex-prisoners. This Marni venture aims to reinforce the prisoners resettlement into social and working life. All chairs consist of metal structure and multi-colored PVC threads featured on the backs and armrests. A common seat in Colombian local families, re-interpreted by Marni who modified the woven pattern and created new color variations.
The chairs are linked to the “L’Arte del Ritratto” project through a photo exhibition created in collaboration with the photographer and filmmaker Francesco Jodice. His performances are based on works of categorization: the chairs are used as background for a series of portraits of Marni teams from different departments. “L’Arte del Ritratto” is an homage dedicated to them, destined to last in time, which is also accompanied by a video that reports the shooting experience.

I love the Fall collection from Marni. The combinations of pattern, texture, scale and color are playful and over the top but visually they still work.
These are my favorite looks from Marni’s Resortwear collection 2011.
