Unfortunately, fantasy is rare in today’s fashion, especially in case of menswear. However, there’s an exception – it’s Marni‘s creative director, Francesco Risso, who doesn’t only convey a certain feeling of escapism in his work, but also makes it look extremely desirable. If you ask me, I would wear every single piece from his autumn-winter 2018 collection. From those ultra-big coats to fishing boots, from the haphazard, yet lovely, monkey-printed blazers to mis-matched sleeveless knits – everything. The two layered-up ‘blanket’ looks are totally fine, as well. Also, the season’s model casting is outstanding, featuring dandy-ish 40+’s, runway favourites (like Paul Hameline) and real Italian men. Really, really in love.
