^ I'd say those are clearly key rings, but you guys certainly have active imaginations

unloved stepchild
I get the same feeling
There seems to be so much more playing with different fabrics and construction techniques at womenswear

Somebody said it's too utilitarian, but I don't see anything overtly detailed in the clothing that would suggest an overtly functional background.

Couldn't agree more. Prada has been doing this for years though. If Marni takes pages out of Dries van Noten with every women's collection, why not take Prada's pages for menswear?

The image of Marni's menswear has always been a bit bohemian, a bit flamboyant, a bit poetic, bright colors, beautiful and interesting patterns, some quirky details here and there, but always elegant and with right amount of restraint. That's why I was such a big fan of Marni. But the last two or three seasons, such an image was really gone. I was at Marni's boutique in New York two weeks ago, and I didn't see anything that appealed to me. The Marni stuff at Barneys was even more horrible. Marni has always been one of the staple on YOOX. Until two seasons ago, I could always find very very nice and unique things from Marni on YOOX (like heavy-embroidered jacket, white canvas short blazer, long-sleeved shirt with beautiful water-color prints), but not any more. Right now everything of Marni on YOOX was boring, the colors, the cutting, everything look so dull. I saw some pics from its 06/07 FW showroom presentation, to be honest, all those outfits look so much John Varvatos-alike, all those earth-tone coats and jackets. I don't know what to say about this collection, but it's really not the Marni that I love. Actually lots of things shown here look like Agnes b. a lot.
