MARNI celebrates the Chinese New Year 2024 by presenting a special capsule collection that pays homage to the Dragon, fifth mythological creature in the Chinese calendar and symbol of the new year. Consisting of women’s and men’s ready-to-wear garments, sneakers and accessories, the limited-edition series features an original interpretation of the zodiac sign.
The Chinese New Year revamps the wardrobe through an array of feminine casual essentials: oversized t-shirts in organic jersey are presented alongside crew-neck sweatshirts drawing on a palette of delicate tones. Both garments are underscored by Dragon-inspired drawings printed on the front and back respectively, adding energy to the looks during festive days. The collection also introduces V-neck waistcoats and cardigans in soft wool blended with cashmere, animated by the inlaid Dragon motif, and underscored by multicolored trims.
The brand’s creativity and Made in Italy workmanship converge into men’s tropical wool shirts featuring the embroidered Dragon detail, as well as on light crew-neck sweaters and beanies in wool and cashmere. The magnetic spirit of the new year’s symbol manifests itself onto organic jersey t-shirts with loose silhouettes, and through navy blue hoodies.
The accessories see the introduction of warm alpaca striped scarves with fringes, to match with small East/West tote bags in raffia, finished with the MARNI logo embroidered on the front. The women’s iconic Pablo Mary Jane sneakers and men’s Pablo lace-up sneakers featuring a bold chunky sole, complete the collection.
