MARNI is bringing a splash of color to Milan Fashion Week this fall with a pop-up flower market.
For one afternoon only, the city’s Rotonda della Besana will be filled with blooms as part of the brand’s 20th anniversary celebrations.
The brainchild of Carolina Castiglioni, Director of Special Projects at the luxury fashion house, “Marni Flower Market” will be overseen by Italian architect Stefano Rabolli Pansera, who recently curated the Angola Pavilion at the 55th Venice Art Biennale.
According to the brand, flower markets have always fascinated Castiglioni, with floral themes forming an essential part of the Marni narrative over the years. The event will see bouquets displayed against a backdrop of fabric from the label’s archives.
The market will also provide visitors with the opportunity to purchase vases, Japanese flower pots, tool bags and other gardening accessories in vintage Marni prints.
Marni Flower Market will be open on September 21 from 3pm – 8pm CET. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to children’s charities.

The London luxury department store has unveiled a brand new footwear department, named Shoe Heaven.
The new area is located suitably high-up, on the fifth floor of the HARRODS store in London’s smart Knightsbridge district.
Pushing 42,000 sq ft, the space contains 17 footwear boutiques with collections from over 50 of the biggest luxury brands including Christian Dior, Chanel, Christian Louboutin, Valentino, Manolo Blahnik and Louis Vuitton.
Shoes are “becoming an ever increasingly important part of the way a woman dresses, and indeed a key part of our business,” explained Helen Davids of Harrods; “the space will be more ‘Penthouse’ and less ‘Shoe Floor,’” she added, in what is one of the store’s biggest rennovations to date.
The luxe marble-floored space was designed by the late David Collins, the celebrated London interior designer who died last summer.
Alongside the shoes and the displays, the space also contains velvet banquet seating and private shopping suites, with staff on hand to provide an experience that is “more five-star hotel than shoe department.”
