After Marni mania gripped high street lovers last month, when the Italian fashion label collaborated with Swedish retailing giant, H&M, we’ve been enticed back into the brand’s stylish grip with a rather delicious offering for SS’12.
Marni, known for its unrivalled production of season-defining prints and classic pieces with a directional twist; the three-dimensional woven tote couldn’t be a better illustration of this.
Continuing with this season’s affinity for all things handcrafted and lusciously embellished, the woven tote isn’t your average awe-inducing piece of arm candy. Intricately woven leather strings and silk ribbons create a striking, artisanal finished look and it’s sure to be your ‘wow’ insertion into this season’s wardrobe.
The roomy interior, luxurious lambskin exterior and delectable colour combination of black and ecru safely elevate this tote to must-have status, but a must-have that isn’t too trend-centric, instead focused on quality and luxury.
We’re not too keen on ‘IT’ bags that are ‘in’ as quickly as they are out, but the Marni woven leather and silk tote is most certainly a (bag) friend for life.
Get yourself this Marni masterpiece at Marni.com, and watch an exclusive video of how the stunning woven tote is made by hand, below.
