Marni Edition knows that the very essence of fashion is art. For what is now its third collaboration with an artist, the collection has teamed up with Brian Rea, American illustrator and former art director of the New York Times, for Marni Uomo and Marni Donna 2012 Winter Edition.
The collection features Rea’s “magical-melancholy” illustrations perfectly pictured on Marni Edition’s signature t-shirts and bags. Rea’s illustrations use well defined black and white lines that contrast with colored backdrops to produce a magical image from common objects. Rea’s sharp yet whimsical style seamlessly compliments Marni’s vision for the collection, which Castiglioni has described as “iconic youth cultures that clash and mingle in unexpected ways.”
Look out for Brian Rea for Marni Winter Edition 2012 sold exclusively at Cahier!
