Designer Consuelo Castiglioni stepping onto the runway, sent out refreshed classics for Marni Fall 2016 Menswear debut.
Taking place in its home city, Milan-based label Marni recently unveiled its 2016 fall/winter collection. Designer Consuelo Castiglioni stepping onto the runway, sent out refreshed classics that flowed loosely around the body with minimum interventions. The latest range highlights the brand’s hallmark designs of impeccable tailoring complemented by sleek, albeit sometimes off-kilter, silhouettes.
There was some great pieces in this collection–Baggy trousers, flowery shirts, massive topcoats and a palette heavy in mustard, peach and forest green that occasionally hit the right note. In particular, our eyes were drawn to the concrete grey number loosely fastened at the hip and the blue single-breasted iteration simply adorned with two chest pockets. Not to mention leather sneakers that most swaggering of menswear ensembles.
Marni sure packed a punch, although for this season there’s a certain clumsiness to their male offering. Castiglioni’s vision of masculinity has plenty of confidence, flair and cool but not enough to sustain the energy a show demands. The collection may still feels underdeveloped, yet it’s promises to grow spurt in the following season.
