The collection was co-designed by Marni's creative director, Francesco Risso, and builds on Marni Jam, a program that calls upon the brand's multidisciplinary community. The offering features hand-made leather patchwork, robust sequins, thick wools, plush velvets, and more, with a sense of soulful maximalism that is a hallmark of Badu's style. Badu teased the collaboration by wearing an all-white beaded dress by Marni to the 2023 Met Gala.
The collaboration between Marni and Erykah Badu is a beautiful blend of music and fashion, showcasing the creative heaven that results when two artistic forces unite. Fans of both the Italian fashion brand and the Queen of Soul can now enjoy a limited-edition collection that brings together Marni's house codes and Badu's unique style, delivering a soulful and eclectic experience. The Marni x Erykah Badu limited-edition capsule has already been introduced in select Marni boutiques in the United States, with plans to expand to European locations and other retailers soon.
