Considering I’m a film student it probably would be most appropriate for the next ‘shotgun’ show review (I would write pithier analyses if time allowed…hélas) to examine Alexander McQueen‘s SS10 collection. But I’ve seen the film, it’s nothing to write home about (simulated self-harming anyone? Honestly, the creative process couldn’t be that difficult…) and the collection’s only mildly more noteworthy so on to Marni, which seemed to consolidate its position as one of the Milanese menswear-heavyweights this season.
It was less geometric shape and spare palette, more audacious prints and warm hues. The signature schoolboy-prep was still apparent but this season’s was a much more unruly sort in contrast to the ever-so-slightly dull swot of SS09.
Still, mine is a mixed reaction to a somewhat schizo collection. If Consuela was so keen on reintroducing the fun of fashion into Marni (her attempt was more than succesful…that all-over print shorts-suit) then why ever didn’t she go the whole hog instead of including boring, brown basics with no shape? Must be the heat.

oh wow, the last one-the suit with the rolled cuffs is perfect! I adore Marni menswear
is it a pretty safe collection i have to say, im sure most people would agree. there are some nice pieces but nothing uber exciting. my fav look from those is the bottom left, id have the shirt and the bag.
I don't think I'm for this at all. I agree with Ana, the last suit os perfection, but overall this season's so boring and stale. It's like Consuelo didn't even try. I'm actually really starting to love Marni's womenswear now, but IMO this is almost a step back.
Awesome! Thanks for sharing them. Hope to see more of this. Have a great day.=DA Writers DenThe Brown Mestizo
