Marni Fashion Collections
Risso has become known for his clever, whimsical collections that feature bold patterns and quirky silhouettes. In a plethora of colours and shapes his pieces always embody his positive and upbeat personality. Risso brings thoughts and ideas to life through form, inspired by traditions and learnings from the past, pushing it beyond.
Some of his iconic collections include the SS20 menswear show that highlighted the environmental crisis of plastic waste. For the show, they used over 37,000 pieces of plastic waste to create a large installation that covered the ceiling. It was a metaphor to highlight the impact plastic has on the planet.
Furthermore, Risso’s SS22 collection celebrated the return of live shows by conducting fittings for 400 people. Not only did the models wear Marni but every single guest was dressed in upcycled cotton separates hand-painted with colourful stripes.
was about going back to the practice of what we do, which is making clothes for people, one to one.
The fabric everyone associates with Marni fashion is Mohair. Providing shaggy wool sweaters and cardigans, Marni’s mohair pieces have become the namesake of the brand season after season. Often in bright stripes, they are a statement investment that has been seen across a whole host of names from rappers to designers.
This month Marni collaborated with American workwear giants Carhartt WIP. The Marni X Carhartt WIP collection combines Marni’s bright and abstract fashion cues with the heavy-duty denim workwear structures that Carhartt are renowned for.
With sun-flower prints and colour-blocked corduroy trousers and jackets, the collection forms the perfect hybrid wardrobe for the season’s changing weather. It also showcases Marni’s standout quirkiness on what can quite often be very plain wardrobe pieces.
