The artistic, color-savvy world of MARNI meets CARHARTT WIP for the first time, offering an original point of view on contemporary daywear through a wardrobe rooted in utilitarian silhouettes.
Consisting of women’s and men’s ready-to-wear and accessories, the collection 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. MARNI x CARHARTT WIP introduces new material combinations, all-over prints and generous volumes, combining the substantiality of authentic utility wear with the light-hearted approach of MARNI.
The two brands worked together to fluidly shift Carhartt WIP’s codes towards unexplored imaginative territories, envisioned by MARNI’s hand and its artistry.
A two-tone clover print is applied to canvas Carhartt WIP archetypes such as the Active Jacket, a short-sleeve work shirt, and a work pant offered in a loose silhouette. Shearlings and soft leather add a tactile richness to typically rugged styles like the four-pocket Michigan coat and vest; an interplay of corduroy and canvas appears on items including a car coat and overshirt, further elevated by MARNI’s signature flair for color, while pockets bear a co-branded motif that utilizes a unique single thread embroidery technique.
The collaboration, a Marni Jam, remarks the brand’s approach in fostering dialogues with other creative minds to translate shared ideals into special collections.
