Flaminia Veronesi’s vision x Marni

-
Andrea Tuzio

The relationship between fashion and art continues to strengthen during this Milan fashion week.
An example of the strong connection that exists between these two forms of creative expression is very well represented by the dialogue undertaken between Marni and artist Flaminia Veronesi

After the Spring/Summer 2023 collection of the brand directed by Francesco Risso last September – where Marni’s classic vivid and joyful colors were further highlighted and emphasized by draping and swirls inspired by the London-based artist’s works – Marni and Flaminia Veronesi continue to tighten their connection and deepen their relationship inside the flagship store of the maison founded by Consuelo Castiglioni in 1994 where the artist’s peculiar vision, characterized by an imagery that recalls fantastic and unique worlds populated by fluid, ethereal and sensual creatures, gives a new decoding of the spaces of Via Montenapoleone enveloping the patrons leaving free rein to their imagination.

The exhibit, titled “THE HERMITCRAB’S WUNDERSHELL”, brings together shapes and colors, sculptures and paintings, bodies, creatures and flowers that project visitors into an underwater, enchanted world.
As Flaminia Veronesi herself explains, “The exhibition is conceived as the wunderkammer of a family of hermit crabs, collecting shells and mythological iconographies, hermit crab gods who look very much like us and who, with tender anthropomorphic features and striking looks are the protagonists of a monumental portrait gallery. A parade of fairy tale or cartoon characters, with hybrid bodies and iridescent complexions, flaunting provocative outfits. But can a dress be inhabited?”

The installation opened its doors to the public yesterday, February 22, at Marni’s flagship store at 26 Via Montenapoleone in Milan, and will be open until April 30.
