The collaboration between Marni’s founder Consuelo Castiglioni, her daughter Carolina and curator Stefano Rabolli Pansera, will feature bouquets displayed against a backdrop of fabrics from Marni’s archives and will sell limited edition, floral inspired pieces created especially for the occasion – including canvas totes, aprons and gardening items such as a tool set, anniversary seed packets and plant pots. There will also be brightly coloured handmade garden sculptures similar to those the shown at Milan Design Week earlier this year.
“Florals are an essential part of the Marni aesthetic,” said Castiglioni. “I have always been fascinated by them for their animation and vitality.” The market is open from 3 – 8pm on the 21st of September and part of the proceeds will be donated to support children’s organisations.
Is it just me or does a trip to Milan to buy flowers this weekend seem entirely justified?
