Marni, Milano .. and my magenta Acrobats!

March 11, 2012

We happened to be in Milan on the day that the Marni for H&M collection was released. I couldn’t help but get in on the action! It was a pretty big deal as you can tell by the advertising on the side of the duomo!

I hear there were wrist bands and ‘allocated time slots’ in London stores … but they took a much more Italian approach in Milan (chaos!) All women’s lines were sold out by 2pm that day.

The Marni mania was cause for a calming drink on the roof-top terrace of La Rinascente department store which overlooks the Duomo spires … as all good tourists would know! (And a pic of my purchases in situ).

More to come from our ‘time out’ in Italy as we make our way down South to work on next Winter’s collection.
