Consuelo Castiglioni chose to work with the illustrator Brian Rea for the 2012 Winter Edition collection: intense, saturated colours, clean lines, nods to metropolitan life as a backdrop are motifs shared by both the world of cartoons and this collection’s style code.
Brian Rea created T-shirts and bags for the collection and one of his illustrations was turned into a wallpaper that decorates the walls of the Marni headquarters in Milan.
Simplicity and clarity — Brian Rea is a firm believer in the “less is more” philosophy — along with a sprinkling of wit are the key elements in the artist’s dreamlike and poetic vision of reality.
