Spring 2006 Marni Blue & Grey Cotton Print Baby Doll Mini Dress
This darling little dress is from the days when founder Consuelo Castiglioni was the head of the company still and acting Creative Director. The brand launched in 1994 and quickly became known for it innovative prints and the way she mixed and matched colors. This is classic Marni from this time period. The print was featured on the runway in two looks and then for production to the stores they utilized the fabric in this dress as well. It is one of her very easy to wear smock pieces with sleeves that run just past the elbow and a bodice set above a high waist. The collar is neat and pointed and this tops a plunge that runs right to the seam under the bust. There is a bit of a curved yoke at the front and the back as well as a few well placed knife pleats for volume and detail. The dress falls in a loose baby doll, smock feel around and below that. It is very easy to wear and travel with and is a great example of her work during this time period. Plus it has pockets. Excellent condition
