Marni's FW '13 Video Would Make Grey Gardens' Little Edie Proud

Marni holds a dear place in our hearts. We love the brand's fearless focus on oversize silhouettes, funky-yet-practical accessories, and forever-cool footwear you can actually walk in, even if they are a little on the ugly side.
We thought all our birthdays had come at once when we received the video for the runway label's FW '13 collection, entitled "The Gray Garden." Could another passion of ours, Grey Gardens, be influencing our favorite fashion label ever? Actually, no. But, the more we watch the video and look at the collection's signature looks — voluminous shawls, forest-print dresses, and boxy jackets — the more we see Little Edie Bouvier Beale in them all. In fact, we'd go so far as to say that if she was with us today, she would love this label as much as we do, too. Heck, Beale's iconic jumper-worn-as-turban would be the perfect finishing touch for each and every one of these looks. Click through to watch the video and let us know in the comments below if you think Little Edie would approve of this collection.
