Now helmed by the talented Francesco Risso, luxury ready-to-wear label Marni has a lot to answer for where Italian menswear is concerned. Eschewing the design codes often expressed by its peers, Marni drives in its own lane, cultivating styles that are unique while remaining in touch with today’s zeitgeist.
The house was founded in 1994 by Consuelo Castiglioni – a Swiss designer with strong links to Milanese fashion through her husband. The brand’s menswear division wasn’t established until later down the line, entering in 2002. Since then, the male side of the business has transcended expectations, becoming a core focus under Only The Brave – Marni's international holding group since 2012.
Marni was one of the first Italian luxury brands to conquer the world wide web back in the day, with its e-commerce operations now accessible across the globe, accompanied by 300 brick and mortar retail locations; an impressive figure indeed, especially for a label that’s still fairly new in comparison to its native counterparts.
Marni’s aesthetic often rejects mainstream trends with steadfast loyalty to the brand’s wider vision which is often characterised by an explosive use of colour and an assortment of interesting fabrics. Marni T-Shirts and Marni Knitwear is primed to command attention, whether that’s through billowy silhouettes, the most premium woollen materials or through an exaggerated palette.
