Marni: an irregular harmony that springs from opposing worlds
Games on irregular harmony that is born of mixing opposing worlds, chromaticisms and volumes, tangling them all together: the eclectic style of Francesco Risso, Marni’s creative director, is always a step ahead and photographs a world in progress, outlined when it should choose a direction, here or there, for a collection that evolves in a new and increasingly inclusive way.
The intrusion of rubbish in our mother Earth is resistant: recovered from the sea and the woods, when recycled and composed for the next September of September, when the women’s collection will be on show.
A roof that dialogues with garbage-made hats by the artist Shalva Nikvashvili, and with the silver brooches of Kazuma Nagai, a Japanese artist who considers extinct animals or in genetic transformation.
The stylistic virtuosities break into the graphic formality of the clothes, while trousers and jackets are like sums of fabric.
Field jackets and camouflage jackets express the radical rebellion that leads to the start of a tropical journey.
The military mood is everywhere, in the window fabrics or in those camouflage, which turn into a fauve key.
The overs with dichotomous volumes forcefully enter the male wardrobe. And that’s when striped, shirts, compact sweaters are worn alone or with precious multicolor jackets on shorts or two-tone trousers, with flowered or recycled prints with a seventies mood.
The bags are for “large collection”, come the garbage bags to be differentiated. The slippers are assembled with remnants and clippings, while the sneakers immerse themselves in the oil.
The Marni man answers his brilliant distinctive trait, celebrating the union between two souls and their respective wardrobes.
Risso sends a message to all of us, so that we reconsider our presence in this world and focus on what we represent and what we fight for.
