Marni : Menswear Spring/Summer 2020 show in Milan (with interview)

Artistic Director: Francesco RissoVenue: A ceiling posed as a sky, with a cloud composing of recycled plastic bottles. Models walking at high speed through the standing spectators. Collection: “Rebellion is beautiful and beauty is rebellious”, loudly announced by the designer before the show to define the creative concept of his collection. A wardrobe inspired by the meeting of two men: Ernesto Che Guevara and Truman Capote, with a number of jumpsuits and trousers dressed with reinterpreted camouflage patterns, overlays of shirts and polos, suits with pulled up sleeves, high waisted trousers with slits on the legs.A mix and match with military and tropical influences. The colours are soft, the silhouette loose and effortless.The big hats were made by Georgian artist Shalva Nikvashvili, from recycled adhesive tape and silver brooches by Kazuma Nagai. The slippers and the maxi bags, trailed by hand, are made from upcycled materials.Interview :Francesco Risso : Rebellion is beautiful but also beauty is very rebelliousIt’s a conjunction between two figures. To me it was Truman Capote and Ernesto Che Guevara. I like the idea that today we are celebrating a wedding between these two iconic people and it is about Truman abandoning his “swans” and lost beauties to go to completely embrace the radicalism in the jungle of Ernesto.Basically, the most formal suits à la Truman were made out of stiff cotton à la Che Guevara and “sahariennes” were made out of a flower in chiné mimicking camouflage. It was literally like a ceremony of camouflage and carnival and also somehow inventive warriors and control freaks from the 50s.Show music (only for use in the context of the show, covered by the right to information)
