Cobalt blue, burnt orange, pillarbox red and pastel green are all thrown together in an array of cosy knits, tailored wools and even a puffa jacket or two. On paper it should give us all a headache yet in practice, every look exudes eclectic elegance. Graphic knits, tartan and collars galore styled with knee-high socks and chunky brogues give the collection a charmingly geek chic edge, while luxe fox fur trims and sportswear touches add to the high fashion haberdashery effect. Ok, so wearing head-to-toe tartan might be easier said than done – especially for anyone who doesn’t want to send men fleeing – but separate the pieces, remove the striped leggings et voila, instantly wearable! Bank balance allowing, I think I might embrace the Marni madness next season and go for the full on look, after all who needs a boyfriend with a wardrobe that fabulous?
Love Ella. X
