New year is in the air and a really special atmosphere surrounds Marina Rinaldi this year. Exclusively for customers a new version of Marina Rinaldi perfume is back to evoke the mood and atmospheres of the maison’s fashion collections.
This new MR perfume not only comes in a renewed guise, but above all in three different versions: Luxury, Voyage and Sport to represent the three female souls which have always inspired the Marina Rinaldi world.
The new MR Characters perfume, enclosed in an exclusive glass and light bottle, is like an olfactory sound track. Every woman can choose, from among the three available, the one that suits her best and which will accompany her throughout the day. Because each of the three MR Characters fragrances is absolutely unique and is unlike any other in its interpretation, always absolutely natural and feminine, of the Marina Rinaldi world and atmospheres.
LUXURY is an essence of rare elegance which delicately veils the skin. Its sophisticated charm makes it suitable for women who love an upper class style made up of highly-prized and feminine details.
VOYAGE is a tribute to the lightness of being and the desire to go. So fresh and light, it blends with contemporary codes of cosmopolitan comfort and style.
The fresh olfactory notes of SPORT open up in a fruity bouquet that gives the person using this essence great energy and an immediate appeal.
Each of the three versions is then closed in an elegant pack available in three different nuances (black for Luxury, powder pink for Voyage and beige for Sport). Thanks to its refined packaging, MR Characters is in our opinion the perfect gift, to be given to others and yourself, choosing the mood and inspiration that represents us best.
Elegant, sophisticated and essential: the new Marina Rinaldi packaging is the great new style this Christmas. If you are looking for the perfect gift, you cannot compromise on the importance of an attractive package which adds the final touch to your present.
In sophisticated total black, with the Marina Rinaldi logo and writing highlighted in silver to create an elegant shiny effect on the matt black, this special Christmas “GIFT” packaging comes in many different sizes, the gift from Marina Rinaldi to all its customers to make Christmas even more exclusive. So if you still don’t know what to give this Christmas and are looking for something that will make someone really happy, remember that in the MR Blue Label range you will find lots of trendy and interesting ideas for your Christmas gifts.
Looking for some ideas? A great must of every woman’s wardrobe is the white t-shirt which Marina Rinaldi proposes this season with romantic, very feminine prints to add a touch of class to even the most basic look. The more sparkling outfits on the other hand come in black, including the sweaters and twin sets with shiny richly embroidered edges. Perfect for a great New Year’s Eve!
Equally attractive are the jersey dresses, available in many different models and colours, all warm and intense, to light up with macro jewel-necklaces, another gift idea which is sure to please, perfect all day long and for any occasion. What about the scarves in cashmere, wool and smooth knits, so warm and embracing, a gift which has always been a favourite with all women. This winter, the handmade look is very trendy, and their large sizes and warmth offer a pleasant cocoon effect.
Another cult accessory to focus on absolutely are gloves, which in the MR Blue Label range come in many different colours and models. For the divas out there, elbow length, or for the more sporty-chic, try a brand new shade, how about brilliant red, the star colour of the Christmas holidays, also found in the beautiful leather or soft suede shopping bags.
So totally glam and irresistible, just like the clutch bags. Available in quilted leather, croc- and animal prints, they are perfect to add the right touch of elegance and femininity to any look, going beyond the trends of the moment.
Just as the perfect gift should do, don’t you agree? Only in this way will your gift be a real success, a present in absolute style.

Winter 2010-2011 sees the return of a great classic of the feminine wardrobe, this time round however in an innovative manner: completely re-invented, with a sophisticated design and a sporty-chic mood, the range of Marina Rinaldi furs is totally new and original, in both its models and colours.
The fur is fashionable in wild style, with natural shades: honey, amber, chocolate, grey, black and white. Easy to wear even during the day, maybe over a pair of jeans. And for the more sporty, the animal print detail can be found in muffs with their retro charm and the detachable collar of the viscose and lurex dress. Both in leopard print mink.
The easiest models certainly include the fur waistcoat, warm and sporty-chic, to be worn over a pretty tailored shirt. A perfect look when worn over boot cut pants and soft suede boots with a comfy plateau. And the finishing touch, a leather belt to mark the waistline with a ladylike effect. For a more casual, sporty look, forget the belt and choose a leopard print waistcoat, worn open over a warm cashmere twin set and dark grey or black jeans. With accessories to match, of course.
Marina Rinaldi also interprets the fur coat with great sophistication, with new tailoring which make it smart and very modern. And to mark sophistication and moderation, the garments with fur edging like jackets, down coats and gloves, also with animal prints. And even knitted mink stoles with inlays.
For a sophisticated, contemporary style.
“I love the comfort of Marina Rinaldi, which dresses us curvy women in a glamorous way, yet so practical at the same time”.
These are the words of Elisa D’Ospina, eclectic curvy model with noble features, communication psychologist and blogger, violinist and creator of Vogue Curvy, the latter the happy intuition of Franca Sozzani and her pro-curves, pro-diversity and pro-fashion creed which Pulitzer prize winner Robin Givhan recently spoke of in the Washington Post.
In a video which portrays her in all her splendour on Vogue.it, Elisa tells of her busy life as she walks comfortably through her home city Milan and the Marina Rinaldi flagship store, where she admires the collections, by virtue of that elegant style she says she looks for in her everyday outfits.
“I love leggings with short dresses, jeans with jackets and accessories, which I play with a lot. For big occasions, on the other hand, I prefer long dresses and high heels” Elisa says, and as a sophisticated fashion blogger reveals her secret for an impeccable outfit knowing how to recognise your strong points and make the most of them, maybe with a small accessory like a belt, which underlines the waist and makes generous hips more harmonious.
Which look won us over most in the video? The seductive total red outfit and the animal print bag in pony skin, which she uses when she goes shopping at the Marina Rinaldi store. Sophisticated, dynamic and ultratrendy. Totally Elisa.
This Christmas, give something really special! Would you like the person receiving your gift to remember it fondly forever?
Give something lasting, if not forever then at least for a long, long time. An idea? The accessories which are must-haves of every woman’s wardrobe and which remain impervious to the fun flightiness of fashion collections which propose new lines, models and colours every season. Because, like diamonds, an important accessory is forever. The difference being that to use it we don’t have to wait for special occasions.
Every day can be special with the new Marina Rinaldi Croco bag on your arm, the must-have bag this winter. Sophisticated and classy, it makes the perfect gift for those who love to feel chic and very feminine all the time. And for the more sporty, the soft, oversize shopping bag, available also in suede and in many irresistible colour shades. And for the evening, there’s nothing better than a clutch bag, chic & glam, in suede, quilted leather or croc-print calfskin, with a gold and silver clasp and fun charms with the Marina Rinaldi initials.
But a woman does not live on bags alone! It’s Christmas Time and it’s winter. Why not give a lovely pair of gloves, oh so chic and bon ton style both short and long, maybe worn with an elegant black dress on New Year’s Eve? With leopard print fur edges or more minimal in delicate chocolate, grey, black, they are also available in beautiful deep red, the perfect colour for Christmas! Again for the winter, a Christmas gift which is both beautiful and warm, knitwear is one of the macro-trends this year.
In the Marina Rinaldi knitwear you will find delightful wool and alpaca cable-knit cardigans and splendid cashmere stoles (another great gift idea!), but also lots and lots of hand-made effect maxi scarves in smooth knit, wool and cashmere. So warm, embracing and sophisticated, they’re sure to please! And this year in all Marina Rinaldi stores a great new idea: your gift will be even more sophisticated when wrapped up in the special Christmas “GIFT” packaging, an elegant shiny black box with the Marina Rinaldi words and logo in silver. Available in lots of different sizes for all types of GIFT, to surprise and thrill from the packaging inwards!
