Milan…Marni

Never having quite enough of a wow factor to succeed in showing on a runway, Marni’s men’s collection instead decided to opt for an intimate showroom presentation for F/W 09/10. Designer Consuelo Castiglioni’s attempt at making the house’s aesthetic more relaxed and casual than seasons past mostly paid off in a showing of comfortable cashmere knits, screen printed tees designed by Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon, anoraks, and long john pants. Many of the colors came across as vivid as a water color painting, and two of the most trend-right pieces included an acid-green mohair shag sweater and a blue dip-dye woven shirt. The grungy subtext that made up most of the collection made way for a few tailored, dressy pieces like skinny suits, a camel overcoat and cropped peacoats. No matter the look, the brand will always be good at taking classics and warping them into something unique and quintessential Marni.
