A journey from the white of the rough canvas to colour, seasoned with collage prints of classical statues.

Jamie Hawkesworth reflects on the work in the atelier and on the relationship between the artist and his muse.

Within the evocative frame of Musée Bourdelle in Paris, the model Jess Maybury interprets the Marni Spring/Summer 2019 collection in a series of suggestive poses and expressions that stress the accent on the artisan side of the designer’s work, keeping always an eye on Classicism and its powerful influence on Marni aesthetic paradigm.

The peculiar usage of light recreates an intimate atmosphere inspired to Flemish paintings, while the gestures and clothes of the protagonist convey a sort of subversive attitude that well represents the eclectic essence of Marni.
