The Marni store is located in the space previously occupied by Josep Font’s boutique, in the Right Eixample. After renovation, the store stands out for its pure, avant-garde lines and its white and elegant neon yellow hues.
Marni was established by Consuelo Castiglioni in 1994. Back then, the firm used mainly leather, in a distinct way but only by treating it like any other material. Today Marni is known for its prints and for its vintage-looking shapes and materials inspired by European bonhomie. Marni’s collections feature grey, beige and blue combined with bright colours and original shapes. Castiglioni has collaborated with Kim Gordon?Sonic Youth’s bass player?to create some of the firm’s geometrical designs. Cindy Sherman, Kyra Sedgwick and Gwyneth Paltrow are among the celebrities that are Marni’s fans.
Although Marni launched a men’s collection for the first time in 2007, it’s much more popular among women and it’s highly regarded by fashion and high couture connoisseurs.
