As Maggie Gyllenhaal said, “When I wear a Marni piece, I feel like it was made specifically for me.” And she is not the only celebrity fan of this fashion house; Gywneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie love to wear the electric mix of bright primary colours contrasting against blocked hues, even on the red carpet. Their latest collection feature monochromes with tartan twists, cute tee shirts and bags that will never go out of fashion. What we love about Marni is that each piece can be worn to clash or compliment your outfit and with accessories that feature big bold and vibrant colours, you can create your very own style and stand out from the crowd. We had a hard time picking our favourites from net-a-porter.com but just about managed it; check out the gorgeous tote and tees!
