Marni, Marni, Marni . . . we lovedy-dove marni and its quirky-meets-architectural approach to dressing. Its sexy, in a smart and understated way. In a science geek who makes her own kombucha, loves geodesic domes and listens to the Misfits kinda way. We love a Marni girl and we love her creatrix, Consuello Castiglioni, who helms the boho brand for intellectuals.

In 1994, Castiglioni first started her label, after designing fur coats. In typical Castiglioni fashion, the designer turned fur from its staid old-fashioned shapes and revamped the material into something modern, that could translate easily into pieces for young women. To this day, Marni maintains Catiglioni's algorithm for avant-garde aesthetics and seemlessly blends form and function leaning on colorblocking and bell-hemline elements of yore (Marimekko anyone?) blended with hyper-technological draping and asymmetry.

Perfect for the girl who's completing a residency in a Schindler house to the girls whose showing her sculptures somewhere in Marfa, Marni clothes are the clothes for the girls you just can't help but root for. So, we've chosen a few pieces for our girls. So everyone, yes, everyone can root for you too!
