You can expect no less than eccentricism and quirkiness from Francesco Risso’s Marni, and the capsule collection the brand’s come up with for Chinese New Year is no exception. The collection pays homage to the year of the rat with a mouse motif, playfully transposed onto preppy ready-to-wear and a selection of accessories.
We’re big fans of the wool tank tops, knit in a vibrant palette of pink, red and mustard, with an intarsia mouse motif on the front. Also charming are the lace-up Fussbett sneakers that are crafted in suede with shearling detail around to mimic a mouse’s profile. For a bit more subtlety, you can also look to the cheeky accessories in the collection – there’s a leather necklace with a resin mouse charm and metal hardware, as well as earrings with a little dangling mouse head as a charm.
The Marni boutiques in Singapore are only bringing in a limited range of the pieces from the collection, so you’ll have to look online if you’re interested in this collection’s reinterpretation of the brand’s Earring bag. Those are coming in a limited seasonal colourway of beige and navy with just a touch of festive red down the centre.
