Dissecting and assembling elements from different worlds, SS15 brings us a geometric sensibility that is quintessentially Marni
MFW: Marni SS15
Vibrant energy. A loose, natural attitude: upbeat, neat, fast. Marni SS15 borrows elements from different worlds – sport, utility and tailoring – dissecting and assembling them in a graphic yet spontaneous language which becomes most covetable for the modern man.
Building a wardrobe suited to the needs and demands of the contemporary urban wanderer, forms have the bold assertiveness and the raw perfection of brutalist architecture and suiting and sports merge and morph, seamlessly, creating utilitarian pieces of clothing. Meanwhile, an accent on precision directs the focus to texture and colour.
Whilst the silhouette is loose yet controlled, with an airy sense of firmness, the iconic elements of the masculine wardrobe are distilled to their essence and then remixed with a geometric sensibility that is quintessentially Marni. Featuring rich tones of inky blue, deep green, grey and black, along with reoccurring geometric, scribble and floral prints, bomber jackets, collarless shirt jackets, blazers and shorts match with ease.
The graphic tone of the collection carries on in the accessories. Functional card and phone cases are worn around the neck adding another element of color and shape whilst Marni’s classic backpack is reimagined with another colorful play. Each detail, pattern, colour, shape and silhouette amounts to a collection which is daring but subtle, whilst utterly Marni.
