Company Snapshot

Marni is an Italian fashion label founded by Consuelo Castiglioni in 1994, who remains as the label's designer.

The company produces ready-to-wear clothing, handbags, jewelry, and eyewear. Jenna Lyons, senior vice president of women's design for J.Crew, attributes Marni's success to the "post-Tom Ford era," saying that women are lately being bold through color, print, and shape rather than through overt sex appeal and are dressing more for other women than for men.

Marni launched its first menswear line in Fall 200. In November 2011, H&M announced a collaboration plan with Marni, to be launched in spring 2012. In 2013, the brand launched its first fragrance, Marni.

By the end of 2012 the majority in Marni was acquired by Only The Brave (OTB) owned by Renzo Rosso. Castiglioni's husband, Gianni, is Marni's CEO, and their daughter Carolina runs the online store.

Marni's line is made in Italy, and does not have any licensees.
