Saturday morning, that’s the name of Marni‘s latest capsule collection. A Lounge and sleepwear basically for lazy Saturday mornings. The Italian fashion house collaborated for the prints with dutch illustrator Rop van Mierlo. Famous for his “Wild animals” for which he was nominated for the this years Dutch Design Awards, he licensed four illustrations from his award-winning book for Marni’s T-shirts and shirts.
Certainly my favorite, the one with the fluffy donkey. It reminds me “Beautiful Greece”.
Usually I write about new upcoming designers but sometimes I can not let pass by certain things. She is one of my favorite artist, Yayoi Kusama. (wikipedia) The 83 year old Japanese Kusama went into a collaboration with the french fashion house Louis Vuitton and decorated with her very personal style all the collection with her beloved dots.
The new capsule collection contains shoes, bags, accessories and apparel for the summer 2012 launched 2 days ago, July 10th. This is not Kusama’s first move into fashion. In the 60’s when she lived in New York she established her own label, “Kusama Fashion company”, creating crazy outfits and hanging out with Andy Warhol.
