To enhance your look with a glam detail, among the must have accessories this season Marina Rinaldi launches its maxi scarves in satin knitwear, wool, cashmere, tricot and hand-made effect large knit.
Elegant and full of class, tie around the neck to create long drapes, to make the most of a simple white shirt or a rigorously tailored winter suit, but above all the classic trench with jeans and coats and outerwear with minimal lapels, like the easy-chic duffel coat, which is making a big comeback this year, and technical nylon jackets, to create a really elegant shiny-opaque contrast.
Embracing as stoles, maxi scarves are the perfect solution for anyone looking for a warm, comfortable garment with a sober yet easy style. So practical and comfortable, not only do they protect us from the biting cold but are also one of the fashion accessories par excellence for the coming winter season. Perfect and sophisticated all day long, Marina Rinaldi offers a range of models in different fabrics, styles, lengths and colour variants.
Plain or contrast colours. Soft, elegant shades including ivory, sand and beige or the classic shades of black, always so chic, blue, anthracite grey and special herringbone jacquard motifs, in high impact optical black and white. Wrap several times around the neck or knot in a scene-stealing bow or more simple manner, the new so-soft Marina Rinaldi maxi scarves, in rich yarns, can be worn with both casual and elegant styles, for a totally chic and always trendy look.
And to add a personal touch to an outfit because in winter, wrapped up in our big jackets and coats, the scarf, together with our outerwear, is our calling card, when everything else we wear is mostly hidden underneath! For this reason, maxi scarves are a warm, absolute must-have accessory.
Between bon ton style and new design
A symbol of great class and elegance, historically gloves are one of the oldest accessories, as in ancient Egypt women wore them after applying beauty creams, and the Pharaohs wore them as a sign of nobility and prestige. They became very fashionable in the Middle Ages, as wedding gifts to brides, and since then they have always been considered accessories with a very special charm, and this winter they will see their second youth.
Gloves will be the veritable must haves of next winter, an absolutely essential accessory to enhance a classy look or brighten up a sporty outfit with a glamorous, fashionable touch.
And while the short glove is chic and bon ton style, the long glove is traditionally designed for special occasions, but this season it has been reinvented by Marina Rinaldi with new materials and models, to make it a perfect must-have all day long, with almost vintage allure, as its elbow length is reminiscent of the legendary gloves worn by Rita Hayworth in “Gilda” or Audrey Hepburn in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”.
This winter the glove will preferably be worn long, from evening to morning, in splendid shades of candy, honey, chocolate, ivory, grey and black, but also in intense red and green. With minimal stitching or glam details like the leopard print lapin fur edging and even two-sided: the front in total black leather, the back in animal print pony skin.
And while the short glove is perfect for any occasion and goes well with practically anything, the long glove must be worn with three-quarter length sleeved jackets, dresses with low necklines, coats with wide lapels and large volumes or beneath stoles and twin set capes in wool and viscose.
This winter they’ll certainly be on your feet…
We’re talking about ankle boots, the must have footwear of the season.
Also known as ‘half boots’ this type of boot that just reaches the ankle, has been absent from our wardrobes since the eighties, when pop star Madonna wore it with her debut looks.
Now their great moment has returned and Marina Rinaldi is re-launching them in the new winter 2010-11 collection in grand style as a stylish alternative to the classic boot, highlighting their extreme versatility.
Perfect all day long, worn with leggings and the new pattern print dresses by Marina Rinaldi, they complete an outfit with class and, reaching just above the instep, help to lift the silhouette thanks to the triangular shaped heel and the soft plateau.
The most chic model is in soft suede with an elegant zip at the back and can also be worn with the brand new long dress in stretch satin by Marina Rinaldi as an alternative to the classic evening sandal with stiletto heel.
The result is extreme elegance that is very up to date, for an audacious and modern femininity that loves contrasts and mix ’n’ match.

His Majesty grey never knows what a crisis is.
This classic colour, with its decisive appeal, almost masculine, is compulsory in winter and every year it’s confirmed as the great star of the season.Versatile and discreet, Marina Rinaldi proposes it in its new autumn-winter collection in brand new light and bright nuances to extol the other side of grey: the feminine side. Almost a new neutral, very delicate, to wear with accessories with strong details. Because each woman can find what suits her mood and style best from the multitude of grey hues.
Grey is not, in fact, strictly a masculine colour that a woman chooses to wear when she wants to give a stronger image of herself. It’s all down to shades. As with the pure cashmere boxy sweater to wear with a patterned foulard and ripped denim jeans for a casual and sporty look or the soft asymmetrical effect cardigan, just perfect with the minidress and boots for a highly refined cocoon effect.
Not to mention pearl grey, so ethereal and gossamer-like. What could be more feminine?
And what’s more, this year, in a splendid ice-colour nuance Marina Rinaldi has made some superb Alpaca coats with big lapels, very ladylike, for a great diva look.
Grey, discreet and quintessentially a metropolitan colour, is capable of enhancing each silhouette to its very best and if, from out of all the different nuances you have no idea which one to choose, match them all together in the one outfit for a refined effect, as in the particular intarsia design that characterises the Marina Rinaldi patchwork style pure wool maxicardigan of great effect.
The down coat is the king of urban style and one of the true stars of winter fashion.
You must however choose the model which makes the most of your silhouette, to avoid feeling awkward and clumsy. Luckily, in the past few years this garment has finally thrown off its sporty connotations which cancelled out the feminine shape, and has become a veritable fashion garment, with shapes and models reinvented every year by stylists.
For this winter, Marina Rinaldi proposes some elegant, sophisticated models along with the more sporty, casual down coats. For those who love the more classic, luxury solutions the riding style, revisited in a hi-tech key with the iridescent taffeta down coat, cinched at the waist by a belt in the same fabric and decorated with elegant fur cuffs. Very upper class, it is perfect with knee-length leather boots in croc-print calfskin and pale pants or dark skinny cut jeans.
And for sports wear fans, Marina Rinaldi plays with the optical contrasts of black and white to create a shiny nylon padded jacket with contrast edging. Perfect for the city Easy Rider! On the other hand, elegance and style are common features of all the new Marina Rinaldi down coats with figure-hugging tailoring and modelled lines and are made from technical fabrics which make them lightweight but oh-so-warm. With a superb fit and practical style, they are often preferred to more formal outerwear such as jackets and coats, as they blend style with comfort.
Like the quilted down coat which this year Marina Rinaldi has enriched with a precious fur collar for those looking for a chic and elegant padded coat, without compromising on comfort and practicality.
This winter the down coat is hi-tech, rainproof and windproof. And above all, oh-so-glamour!
