© marni

retro meets the future. marni's s/s 2013 men's collection is a sophisticated blend of styles. it's based on an exploration of lines, intended both as precise cuts and classic visual elements. the silhouette is straight, volumes are restricted. it's streamlined affair to the essential and functional with a range of  outerwear, shirts, suits and tees. cropped parkas and neat overcoats are closed with snap buttons, shirt-jackets worn over matching trousers hint at work uniforms. geometric motifs swarm all over precise suits worn with shirt and tie, knit cardigans sport shirt sleeves, contrast stripes give shirts and shorts a constructivist feel. the prints are orderly and visually rhythmic while the palette is classic with contrasting ruptures. fabrics are compact and pleasant to the touch: cotton poplin, bonded crispy cotton, double jersey, technical poplin. accessories include sturdy lace-ups with a commando soles, sandals with loafer fringes, two-tone zippered ipad cases, canvas totes with leather handles. prints that match bags and outfits further extend the visual play. shown here are eight looks from marni's s/s 2013 men's collection that we particularly like.
