Marni focuses on its awkward aesthetic look in Florence

Cult label Marni showed its latest men’s collection in Florence at Pitti Uomo on Thursday night. In recent years, Pitti has become known for two things: hosting guest designer runway show and a thriving street-style scene. The peacock look of Florence has become instantly Instagram-recognisable (fancy-looking chaps done up in colourful socks, loafers, bow ties, dapper suits and shoulder robed coats).

At the Museo Marino Marini, a rather different look was in focus. All the Marni hallmarks were woven into the collection by creative director, Consuelo Castiglioni, who said of the design process: “I don’t have one man in mind in particular as I like how the collection is interpreted by different personalities.”

Highlights were a flared trouser shape – which suits the awkward aesthetic of the label – and the fuzzy colourful knits and zip-up tunics that were layered over signature Castiglioni prints. Suits often came in mismatched sets, with a focus this season on micro-checks.
