UP ON THE ROOF: Marni is continuing its “Marni Prisma” 20th anniversary celebrations by hosting an event in Hong Kong, during the upcoming local edition of Art Basel. Following the temporary flower market held in Milan last September, the brand will recreate a Roof Market at Pier 4. Open to the public on Saturday from 7:30 p.m., the market, which will be decorated with a light installation by Italian artist Massimo Bartolini, will feature counters selling a range of customized Marni products. These will include vase holders decorated with the brand’s vivid patterns, tissue papers and picnic cloths, shopping bags in nylon net, as well as Marni polka dot Saffiano leather handbags and a range of metal and PVC animal sculptures handcrafted by Colombian women. All proceeds will benefit the Vimala Association, providing Tibetan children living in India with medical care and education.
After Hong Kong, other Marni Prisma events will be held in Tokyo and Venice.
