Marni: Menswear SS17
Maybe Conseulo Castiglioni has been watching Magic Mike? Because her Spring Marni collections defining motif was, um, Velcro. Running right up the back of coats and jackets to promise a tearaway revelation to rival Roxxxy Andrews double-wig reveal on RuPaul’s Drag Race season five. Yes, we did just make that comparison. The Marni man this time was geeky – but isn’t he always? Dressed in a chic anorak, bicycle-clipped trousers (or something similar) and a chopped up poplin shirt like a biology dissection gone awry. It was the perfect clobber for the Marni men we all know and love. And maybe all that tearaway Velcro means he’s getting some action next season?
