Men's Spring 2008 - Marni

Consuelo Castiglione sent out a spectacular collection last season that I absolutely fell in love with. After seeing that collection, as well as finally seeing some pieces in person at Nordstrom Downtown Seattle, I've grown quite fond of what Castiglione has in mind for the Marni man. Her latest collection for Spring did not disappoint. She sent out a stream of wearable clothing in unmistakably Marni length: the shorts were short, the pants were cropped right above the ankle, and the short-sleeved shirts reached down to the elbow. The fabrics were deeply saturated and lightweight, with a slight sheen to some that will bode well in the cloudy summer days of Seattle, like today. It almost felt like this was a cross between Raf Simons for Jil Sander and Band of Outsiders. Which actually turned out to be a very good thing. Now if only I could afford it...
