Collaborations never stop astonishing, and the next Janaury edition of Milan Menswear Fashion Week will disclose quite some new ones. Among others, the new Marni x Carhartt WIP will be one of the most surprising ones.
The collection is consisting of women’s and men’s ready-to-wear and accessories, and it reinterprets Carhartt WIP’s signatures with a fresh gaze, lending workwear-inspired archetypes a new guise through Marni’s unique flair for colors, prints and shapes.
The collection will release on January 14th, 2023 and will be available at Marni.com, in Marni boutiques and selected multi-brand stores across the globe, as well as selected Carhartt WIP flagship stores including New York, Paris Le Marais, Florence, London Soho, Antwerp, Berlin Mitte, Hong Kong, Taipei and Sydney. The collaboration will also be available in Japan from January 25th.
Marni X Carhartt WIP is characterized by a selection of new material combinations, all-over prints and oversize volumes, mixing the substantiality of authentic utility wear with the light-hearted approach of Marni.
A clover print characterized jackets and tops, as well as bucket hats, chunky slip-on sneakers, and a canvas tote bag. Meanwhile, jersey tops hybridize the shape of a tee with the iconic silhouette of a basketball tank top, and feature a bold iteration of Carhartt WIP’s ‘C’ Logo.
An interplay of corduroy and canvas appears on items including a car coat and over shirt, further elevated by Marni’s signature flair for color, while pockets bear a co-branded motif that utilizes a unique single thread embroidery technique.
Established in 1994, Carhartt Work In Progress (WIP) develops its own collections based on original Carhartt workwear. The brand combines authentic adaptations of these robust American archetypes, while engaging with the subcultures that have embraced it.
