Marni Amps Up Its Men’s Line With Staff International Licensing Agreement
You’ll soon be seeing more of the Marni man: The label has entered a licensing agreement with Staff International. Focusing on production and distribution, this partnership will make Marni for hommes available in more places around the globe, starting with the Spring 2016 collection. This will include all categories from creative director Consuelo Castiglioni, including ready-to-wear, shoes, and accessories. Staff’s production and distribution services are already used by the likes of Maison Margiela, Dsquared2, Marc Jacobs Men, and Just Cavalli. Plus, Staff is owned by OTB, the Renzo Rosso-owned fashion conglomerate that acquired a majority stake in Marni back in 2012. In January, Marni showed as the selected guest designer at Pitti Uomo; the maison started designing for men in 2006.
