For Marni Fall Winter 2019 creative director Francesco Risso explored the landscapes of human sexuality and erotics in a womenswear show titled NEUROEROTIK.

Guests were welcomed into the same space the menswear show was staged only a few weeks ago, which featured a room filled with speakers as walls and dim multi-coloured lighting. The collection was seen as a cheeky erotic strip game of body language and sensuality. It told a story of foreplay and eroticism throughout techniques of folds and pleat twists, slit dresses and skirts and cutout dresses wrapped around the neck. Chains appeared like composite necklaces wrapped around necks and across bodies. Stovepipe boots and lace-up booties with high plateaus contributed to the general sensuality of the collection. This collection was simply just another display of Riso’s dexterity and fluid imagination. It was almost as if he was reimagining the brand all over again. A palette of red, black, oranges, grey among others were splashed into the collection with half cut menswear jackets, pleated skirts and scarves and rhinestoned dresses.

The collection was in some ways a celebration of the rights of the freedom in choosing to be as sexual as one can be without judgement or presumptions. Each piece was crafted with attention to the bodily details without being too gaudy or vulgar.
