Francesco Risso
& Devonté Hynes

In conversation. Episode 1.

This episode features Francesco Risso, artistic director of Marni, and musician Devonté Hynes, widely known as Blood Orange, who has been creating original soundtracks for Marni’s fashion shows since 2021.

Francesco Risso, who arrived at Marni in 2016, previously worked for Anna Molinari at Blumarine before joining Prada in 2008. His approach evokes a sense of playfulness, putting culture, community, and creativity at the brand’s heart centre.

Dev Hynes is a cultural fixture, scoring movie soundtracks for the likes of Luca Guadagnino and Paul Schrader, previously collaborating with Virgil Abloh for his shows at Louis Vuitton, and starring in Loewe’s Autumn-Winter 2023 campaign shot by Juergen Teller.

After collaborating on shows in New York and Tokyo, and Milan, we speak to Francesco and Dev, days ahead of the Marni Spring/Summer 2024 show taking place at Karl Lagerfeld’s house in Rue de l’Université, in Paris.
