MILAN (AFP) - Italian label Marni won quick praise on Sunday for a modernist collection that featured opulent coloured fur coats, feather-fronted skirts and bright zip-front jackets on the fifth day of Milan Fashion Week.

Trade journal Women's Wear Daily called it "a fashion extravaganza as audacious as it was beautiful".

Ms Jessica Michault, editor-in-chief of Nowfashion.com, tweeted it was "one of the strongest" of the season.

Marni creative director Consuelo Castiglioni's autumn/winter 2014-2015 collection included several oversize and boxy, geometric designs that have proved something of a running theme during fashion week.
