Milan, Italy – In its menswear collection for Spring/Summer 2018, Italian fashion house Marni has opted to drift towards the to the abstract.
The Milan presentation was rather cold and distant and included various, sometimes puzzling garments. The boyish models in subdued colors made an air of mystery present in each set worn. One can see influences of the 90s and retro urban fashion. As a whole remind of the cool attitude of intellectuals living in big cities. Some pieces can be worn to the office, some to the beach and yet it looks unconventional. The effects used are patchwork, asymmetry, subtle exaggeration in details, unfinished effect, shrinkage effect and multiple layering.
The accents like ties or scarves are worn randomly, with an insouciant vibe of “I don’t care“.
The shirts are layered over other shirts or tops. The pants are airy exposing the sock. Elongated tops cover the shorts as an interesting idea for the beach. The prints are mostly pinstripes, horizontal stripes, Hawaiian flowers and strange drawings.
We have a fine selection of tops we have here with great trenches, suits, safari jackets and windbreakers. The looks are finished with interesting shoes. Marni has mastered the art of modern fashion with simple, yet striking appeal. The collection gives the crowd something to think about and with an underlying message in each garment.
