NEW COLLABORATING-MARNI AND BRIAN REA

“We see the line as an opportunity to experiment with art and products,” says the designer Consuelo Castiglioni about Marni’s Edition collaborations. Los Angeles based artist Brian Rea is the former art director for the Op-Ed page of the New York Times. He has produced drawings and designs for books, murals, fashion, posters, music videos, and magazines around the world. His design clients include Marni, Herman Miller, Kate Spade, Honda, Billabong, Random House and MTV.
 For Fall-Winter 2013, Rea collaborates with Marni brand and the result is awesome! He designed both men and women clothes accessories and his collection includes drawings and prints fot T-shirts, bags, scarves and an installation in the Milan showroom. Castiglioni tapped the New York Times contributing illustrator Brian Rea and he says: “When I came across Brian Rea’s work, I was captured by his vision”. Rea’s drawings for Marni depict distinctive melancholy-magical scenes. Rea states: “My work doesn’t always show emotion though the cartoons most often rely on the quiet stories of anxiety, longing, humor and love. And he adds: “I think of Marni as sometimes sweet, sometimes fierce, which is a nice place for all of these stories and emotions to become wearable.”
