MEN’S SPRING SUMMER 2014

An industrial feel with a purist vibe. Utilitarian details and a sharp idea of properness. The Marni Men collection mixes precision and performance. Function creates form. Layering and folds define new shapes.

MARNI_MEN'S_SPRING_SUMMER_2014

The focus is on precise lines and contrapositions of volumes: clothes are purely about shape and form. There’s a lab-like feel in the way pieces are constructed and layered, the addition of parts revealed rather than hidden. A sleeveless blazer is worn as an utilitarian vest on top of a suit, or over shorts, playing with juxtaposed textures.

Contrast pockets on a work jackets are made by neatly folding the fabric; a streamlined apron lands over shorts and is secured with snaps, in an off-kilter quest for utility. Double-layer shirts and light quilting are graphic in feel, with a purpose.

The compact wardrobe is suited for all conditions. It is crispy, airy, appropriate. The multi-purpose cape can be arranged in different ways depending on needs. The zip-up parka is reduced to its essence getting a longer length.

Zippered bombers and leather hooded blousons have an impalpable assertiveness.

Lines are sharp, leaving no room for distraction: one-button suits in utilitarian denim fabrics, buttoned-up boxy blazers with raglan sleeves, essential yet sturdy knits.

Prints are used with the defining precision of an accent: etched checks on outerwear,

and outsized dots on shirts, screened dots like graphic marks on crisp white shirts.

ROMINA QUIROS FOR MARNI

MARNI collaborates with artist Romina Quiros for MARNI WINTER EDITION 2013 DENIM

The Argentinian artist, Romina Quiros, attracted Consuelo Castiglioni’s fascination with her attentiveness to environmental issues and her abstract and unique illustrations. In Quiros’ illustrations, her figures originate from black blots and organic forms with a ball in delicate pink, a motif that recurs in many of her drawings. Castiglioni has chosen 3 of Quiros’ subjects as part of the collaboration for the Marni Winter Edition 2013 Denim collection.

The printed designs are characterized on several pieces throughout the collections: on PVC shoppers with leather handles, I-Pad cases, cotton jersey t-shirts, cotton shirts and bijoux.

FALL/WINTER 2012-2013 COLLECTION

Control and precision; grace that is dry, assertive, with a hint of tension. An idea of graphic composition permeates the Marni collection for f/w 12/13: pure lines, decisive volumes. As if obeying to a precise layering plan, outfits have a constructivist feel with a sleek outlook and a tactile intensity. Shapes are off-kilter; color is used for its density and intensity as a design element; a restrained take on opulence and an accent on fur as punctuating texture subtly alters the balance. The result is firm, at once sober and twisted.

The silhouette is neat and precise, to-the-knee, with a dropped waist. There’s an idea of clothing as soft, architectural element. Exact capes create a firm halo around the body. Decoration turns into construction, playing with the weight of surfaces: rounded fur collars land on top of leather coats, or are worn in place of neckpieces; panels of mink and felted wool recreate the strictness of a man’s coat. An air of grace and rigor runs through: the neck is always covered; brocade tops worn with matching pants are both sumptuous and severe; stole jackets secured to the waist restrict and protect. Prints are used as an accent: a single outsized flower, papiro jacquards and brocades; fur is hand cut in intarsia to recreate tweed and piano stripes. Evening shapes are sculptural, rounded on the hips, highlighted by dense embroideries with a mechanical edge. Gold metal circles with applications and flowery rhinestone brooches run decoratively along the neckline; jewelry becomes an integral element of the garment.

The palette has notes of butter, crimson red, clear blue interspersed with touches of pink, blush, tan and broken with notes of black, tobacco and saffron. Fabrics have a compact hand: silk wool double-face, lurex jacquard, wool crepe. Exaggerated, oversized patent leather and snakeskin add weight and presence.

Accessories include kabuki soles in velvet with gold metal toe caps and lacquered platforms in velvet piped in gold. Bags have a geometric presence: rectangular styles with a curvilinear handle and a shoulder strap, small doctor bags with intarsia motifs, meshed leather bags on hard frames. Sunglasses are over and undersized.

ANTICAMERA 3 _ THE IMAGINARY FRIEND

The story of the doll began in 2008 when Consuelo finds her on a stall in New York. The doll arrived in Milan and immediately became an integral part/mascot/icon/model and muse of the collection Winter Edition which was about to born. From that day the doll is the main theme of all the Edition collections. Jumps from one product to another, becoming the image of a shirt or of a bag, a ceramic pin with a bathing suit and a bathing cap, a rag doll dressed in the clothes of the collection….

This issue of Anticamera is entirely dedicated to her.
The doll comes to life with stories told by 4 Italian illustrators and photographs taken by Marni_Lab for an issue that wants to make you smile.

At the end of this issue find listed all the products with the doll.
