Milan — When two cool labels join forces, expect hot results.
That’s certainly the case with the new co-branded denim project from Marni and Los Angeles-based Current Elliott. The eight-piece, one-off collection for fall marks Marni designer Consuelo Castiglioni’s first foray into denim. “The great thing is that I was given free rein, which meant I could treat denim like any other fabric,” Castiglioni says. “The biggest challenge, however, was to design models that reflected the Marni style and bring my vision to the project.”
