On Climate Strike Day, Marni Pays Homage to Nature

Hundreds of thousands of students and young people from all over the world took to the streets today to protest climate change and global warming. It was so refreshing, then, to see a fashion show put sustainability front and center, from the fabrics in the clothes to the way the set was produced. Repurposed materials such as the seats and stage props were from past shows, and many of the clothes used upcycled fabrics from leftover parts. The results are still visually arresting, with Marni Creative Director Francesco Risso's eye for color, off-kilter proportions and utterly chic dresses commanding the runway today. Here's everything else you need to know about the Spring 2020 collection.

Radiant Leathers

Colorful leathers appeared lightweight and supple in bright green and blue numbers, as well as jackets with painted floral prints.

Domestic Chic

Aprons were slung across the body to resemble entire dresses, and worn over full skirts in various colors.

Brush Away

Colorful paint brush strokes were applied on several looks, which many of the brand's powerful art lovers will no doubt gravitate toward.


Asymmetrical sweaters and knits were frayed at the hem and worn with a casual elegance with rolled up sleeves and bare shoulders.

Mother Nature

The full extent of nature's beauty was seen in explosive prints, embroideries, and overlays that capture the beauty and rawness of greenery and flowers.
