Founded by Consuelo Castiglioni in 1994, luxury label Marni carved a space in the fashion landscape by imbuing modern classics with a quirky bohemian inflection, characterized by retro color stories and free-spirited play with luxurious fabrics and furs. A 2016 changing-of-the-guard led by Central Saint-Martins alumni and creative director Francesco Risso sees the label's codes invigorated with a spirit of irreverence and anti-conformity. Culling inspiration from sources as varied as the early 20th century Dada art movement, childhood memories, and the Japanese deconstructionists, Risso extends the Italian womenswear label’s sartorial vocabulary. Marni's menswear offerings weave in and out of traditionalism with staples such as pleated trousers and essential knitwear, while maintaining the quirky vision of its founder through with offbeat graphic tees and vibrant patchworks. Classic shirting is elevated with relaxed silhouettes, playful striped fabrics, and abundant check patterns. Wool coats and jackets range from sober wardrobe staples to eclectic graphic canvases, while cutting-edge tech fabrics become the subject of experimentation by way of jumpsuits and various men’s outerwear options. Merging the the offbeat quality of Castiglioni’s vision with contemporary appeal, Marni maintains a mastery of its uniquely hybrid aesthetic.
