SNIPS AND SNAILS AND PUPPY DOG TAILS: MARNI FOR MEN
Ready to reconnect with your inner school boy? Let Marni zoom you back to that mischievous sweet spot (minus the scabby knees) with its latest collection of clothes and bags for blokes – you’ll be hard pressed to find a more youthful sartorial line-up for grown men. Drop-crotch trousers, elasticated shorts and roomy jackets are all par for the course in this free-spirited offering from the Italian fashion house. Adding to the impish vibe are cotton tees ablaze with childlike drawings, shirts crafted from a patchwork of stripes, and colour-block backpacks that give more than a passing nod to school bags. We’re loving the playful twist to the label’s lozenge-patterned mohair knit – for all the world, it looks like it’s been snagged on a climb up a tree. Those dangling threads will be quite the talking point over a summer barbecue. Hot dog anyone?
