The look The 1960s woman brought kicking and screaming into the 21st century, with a heavy dose of modernist design.
Key pieces This was all about the skirt and dress, with A-line the most important shape. Pristine layering was also key as skirts had a single organza layer peeking through hemlines. Shape was modern – clean lines mixing with 1960s and 1970s wallpaper prints and artisanal handcraft appliqué.
Colours Sugared almond shades moved into more vivid yellow, duck-egg blue and forest green in addition to tree-bark brown and black.
Commercial appeal The shapes were very modern and looked demure and sophisticated with a twist – typical of Marni. The handcraft work tabard-style dresses will fit in well with the Arts and Crafts trend coming through for spring 12.
