Marni Spring/Summer 2012.

Retro swoon.

Somehow Marni managed to intermingle tribal and Cleopatra undertones (prints, accessories and beading) with ladylike silhouettes and totem-like detailing on hemlines and wrists in this, their SS12 collection.

My favourite is the wingtip detailing on the heels and mini bowler bags in high gloss red – like a slick of cherry lipgloss or a spill of hypnotic ruby paint on an all white floor. I also love the graphic prints and the oversized daisy discs – they remind me of those white moulded plastic baskets we all used to carry as little girls. That, and the irrestible top of a Marc Jacobs Daisy bottle.
