NEW YORK — Marni on Saturday unveiled its first U.S. Edition store at 1 Gansevoort Street in the Meatpacking District here. The narrow 2,500-square-foot triangular building at the confluence of Gansevoort Street and West 13th Street will sell both women’s and men’s. In addition, for spring, the store will launch Marni children’s collection for girls ages 2 to 12. The Meatpacking unit will be the only store in the U.S. to carry the kids’ line.
“This store, I think, is the perfect location for these collections,” said Marni designer Consuelo Castiglioni. “My Meatpacking District and West Village customer is younger and more bohemian.”
“I see things on the hanger and I’m, like, ‘I never knew that color worked on me.’ It’s things you necessarily wouldn’t choose to wear, but once you put them on, you see why Janie is who Janie is." — Lily Collins on working with former "Mad Men" costume designer, Janie Bryant on creating looks for her role as Celia Brady's in Amazon series, "The Last Tycoon." 📸@jilliansollazzo #wwdeye
