The Italian brand Marni paid tribute to Colombia during the Salone de Mobile exhibition that takes place this week in Milan.
In their pop-up room called “Marni Balhaus” the models strolled around the room dancing to the sound of cumbia with the traditional “pollera colerá” skirts.
"Marni is exploring different areas of the performing arts and is using dance to create a union between the new collection and the traditions of Colombia, the country that inspired her," the company announced. Designer Consuelo Castiglioni also created household accessories and men's scarves that are worn around the neck in the same way as Colombian peasants.
Skirts can be booked now on the brand's website for 250 euros. The company ensures that Marni's commitment to Colombia goes far beyond fashion, as a portion of the sales will go to a charitable organization.
