Some of the prints that were reproduced on fabric and the leather goods for the Pre-Fall 2014 collection and Marni’s Men’s Fall-Winter 2014-2015 collection were drawn from Art Brut and Outsider Art: two forms of artistic expression that live outside of the traditional fine arts and its restrictive schools of thought and embraces artists that are mostly self-taught, handicapped or visionaries and therefore are often marginalized in the art world.
Three of these artists X, Y & Z come from three different associations: Esat Ménilmontant; Personimages; Osservatorio Outsider Art.
