The Gift of MARNI/

8am is never really an easy time to be anywhere. Yet season in and season out, Consuelo Castiglione welcomes us to her collection w/ a smile, a warm cup of coffee, and a little gift bag for the girls to tote around Milano, Paris, and points thereafter:

Maybe it's the hospitality or maybe it's the fantastic collection, but this show is definitely worth the wake-up call. The girls, though tired from fittings and rehersals the night before, really come to life as soon as the they fill the shoes and the accessories are draped down their neck. This season, besides heels and necklaces [which are omnipresent], she featured cute little fur mittens [making the girls even more adorable]!
