The colors and shapes of the creative minds are poured into clothes with an artistic breath: Pascale Martine Toyou, Fiona Rae and Rebecca Louisa Law inspire the fabric’s red and decorative flowers; the ribbons, the stripes and the black reinterpret the optical illusions of Franco Grignani, while the geometry of Sarah Morris approaches the blue of Sam Francis to obtain garments with rigorous and decisive designs and colors. The Marina Rinaldi woman heads towards the spring season with conviction and character, contemporary and extremely feminine, experiencing everyday life with freshness. It does so with a sports collection of dual inspiration, an urban one, built around three cities and their lifestyles, and the other ethnic, designed as a tour of the world through more exotic venues. Marina Rinaldi depicts the typical New York Brooklyn Flea (market) and the metropolitan air through the colors – asphalt black, pedestrian crossing white, and the gray of skyscrapers and the red of traffic lights. These colors liven up shirts and dresses with soft lines and modern fabrics, like bi-stretch cloth. The smart look of New York is a counterpoint to the marine inspiration of the Ribeira market in Lisbon, which reveals its neutral white, gray and beige shades like ship sails, punctuated by shades of yellow, orange and marine patterns for an ironic and modern result combined. The floating flower market in Amsterdam is the third stop on this sensory journey, where the carelessness of the city can be found in the comfortable style that matches the garments, from the green military parka in embroidered taffeta to the striped knitwear in modal cotton with broderie anglaise.
Marina Sport’s summer collection continues its journey in warm places and ethnic cultures, immersing itself in the atmosphere of the Java market, white and blue printed poplin and cotton gabardine skillfully mixed with the knitwear also printed and the interlock jersey fantasy. In the Place des Lices market of Saint Tropez, the Rinaldi woman reinterprets the sailor style of the French Riviera with off-shoulder cotton dresses and floral details, cropped denim with embroidered hems. On the beach of Anjuna, however, prints with border motifs on cotton muslin and the long dresses embellished with pleats and multicolored fringes are the theme, and in Mali’s capital of Bamako, a triumph of embroidery thread sings of a tribal taste. Every line, every inspiration and every collection are the result of special care and attention, to underline that in glamor and style, feminine awareness remains the master.
Even the retail spaces are developed according to a welldefined concept, expressed through large and welcoming environments, designed to satisfy customers every need, from personal shopping services to exclusive event organization. Every level of personalization focuses on the woman who chooses the brand: in exchange for client fidelity, Marina Rinaldi rewards with an experience that makes the purchase surprising, from all points of view.
