Marni Menswear A/W11

Smart, graphic pieces with slouchy ethics attempt to take things out of their usual context with leather gloves and Borsalino trilbys

With a focus on sturdy fabrics, slouchy utilitarianism and laid-back layering, the Marni Man collection for Autumn/Winter 11/12 puts work elements out of context by creating a new balance. With their usual graphic tones, contrasting fabrics and a subtle use of prints, the pieces add new meaning to function and proportion. 

From the sportswear pieces to more formal items, de-contextualization is their keyword this season where compact ¾ length wool coats sport leather sleeves and contrasting wool sleeves are attached to zip-up cotton shirt-jackets. The apparel is accessorised by brushed leather work shoes, round-toe lace-up derbies, felt and leather super-flat totes and cotton canvas bags whilst hats have been developed in collaboration with Borsalino.
