Is Renzo Rosso buying Marni?

Consuelo CastignioliThere are many rumors about Renzo Rosso looking to buy a stake in the Italian fashion house Marni, and that serious talks with the owners are being done.

The fact is that back in October of this year when Marni launched the capsule collection for the Swedish retailer H&M, Consuelo Castiglioni, the creative director, announced that they were looking for financial partners to aim growth and expansion of the firm.

The reason for this rumors to exist is that there is a strong friendship between Consuelo and Gianni Castiglioni and the  Diesel's founder Renzo Rosso, and that is why some sources suggested that Rosso wanted to buy a majority stake in the business, but the Castiglionis were reluctant.

What is true is that in case these rumors are confirmed, in the near future Marni could be under Only the brave holdings company, sharing twith Maison Martin Margiela, Diesel and Viktor&Rolf.
