Diesel founder takes stake in Italian fashion brand Marni

OTB, the holding company of Renzo Rosso, has announced that Marni, the Italian brand headed by Consuelo and Gianni Castiglioni, will join the group. Founded in 1994 and based in Milan, Marni is a complete line of ready-to-wear for men's and women's, accessories and children, with more than 100 stores in Asia, Europe and the United States. OTB is the holding company of Maison Martin Margiela, Viktor&Rolf, Diesel, and Staff International (which manages the licenses of brands like DSquared, Just Cavalli, Vivienne Westwood Red Label and Man, and Marc Jacobs Men). Renzo Rosso stated: "I am extremely happy [with] this new entry in the group. Marni represents exactly the concept of fashion I would love to see associated with OTB. A style that's unique, recognizable, individual, fresh and modern. And an outlook that is always international. I have an incredible respect for Consuelo's talent and I am sure that the association between her creative vision and the support and know-how of OTB will take Marni to new, incredible goals",
