Milan, Italy – Today in Milan fashion house Marni presented a collection that is a complete juxtaposition of cool and urban. In it we find oversized trousers, graphic prints and strangely forced matchings of colors.
The Marni men’s silhouette for Fall Winter 2017/18 is oversized from the jackets and coats to the pants. Vest and jumpers are padded. The trousers are cut long and are in dire need of a belt to keep from dropping off of their wearer’s bottom. Fur is used in the outerwear pieces as either embellishments or to even create large bulky pieces. The coats envelop the body nearly swallowing it entirely.
One would be entirely remiss (or blind in this case) were one not to note the colors. Yes it is true that there are total looks in colors that have a touch of leisurely suits. To them we add some pyjama-inspired sets.
Marni accesorizes the looks with fur hats, colors felts and eyewear. The footwear appears in colors that would inspire a kindergardener’s imagination to Puff the Magic Dragon.
We find abstract and geometric prints on the knit, polyester and wools that serve to create very graphic and three-dimensional affects on the eyes. It is nearly overwhelming on the senses. Yet once the brought together with its whimsical musicality, a humour that is incredibly reminiscent of some of Walter van Beirondonck’s work obviously springs to mind.
