The quirky Italian fashion house Marni was founded in 1994 by designer Consuelo Castiglioni. The anti-overt-sex-appeal label introduced a new way of dressing for women with their offbeat collections featuring the juxtaposition of textures, colors and patterns. In 2002, Marni introduced its menswear collection favoring a more minimalist and streamlined aesthetic while retaining the idiosyncratic look known to the brand. Bold graphics, contradictory fabric combinations and classic tailoring resonate through the men’s designs. In fall 2007, Marni produced leggings for men as standalone bottoms, kicking start a trend that would become very prominent in menswear a few seasons later.
