Put Francesco Risso on your watch list

Female (Singapore) - - F-EDIT -

When the 33-year-old was named Marni’s new cre­ative di­rec­tor last year, most peo­ple went, “Who?”. He had al­ways been be­hind-thescenes, lend­ing his de­sign chops most no­tably to Prada’s knitwear arm for a good decade. His F/W ’17 de­but for Marni has re­ceived mixed re­views (the most pop­u­lar com­ments: that there’s too much go­ing on, and that he needs time to hone his vi­sion), but there’s also much that will ap­peal to new and long-time cus­tomers. Like the whim­si­cal, ab­stract jew­ellery, or the psychedelic printed knits and tai­lored sep­a­rates. So keep your eye on him, and give him time. In this age of quick-fire fash­ion mu­si­cal chairs, it’s what we should all do more of.
