Marni presents the MARNI HAPPY BIRDS project, reaffirming its commitment to children’s charities. A limited edition collection of hand-painted wooden and metal birds in a range of vibrant colour combinations is made in partnership with Colombian craftsmen. Inspired by the world of art, five individual creations are an ironic representation of a great female artist of the last century: Carol Rama is depicted with a whimsical sunburst crown, Frida Kahlo is a cormorant with a large beak, the moorhen is Georgia O’Keeffe, the little bird looking to the sky is Alice Neel and the queen is Louise Bourgeois.
The proceeds from all Happy Birds sold will be donated to the Vimala Association www.associazionevimala.org, supporting children in the refugee camps of India.
MARNI HAPPY BIRDS will arrive in Marni boutiques at the beginning of December and will be available throughout the Christmas period.
