Marni: Leggings Are the New Must-Have

Godfrey Deeny Wed Jan 17, 2:25 PM ET

Milan - Now I know there are many out there who will think I have lost it when I write that a key, new must-have for men this coming fall will be a pair of leggings to be worn outside, not just in, the house, but that was the big message at the debut Marni men's runway show this morning in Milan.

Leggings made of microfiber cotton and wool, shown in violet, forest green and Milan fog gray, all of them with stirrup straps, except of course for a couple of them cut above the knee, accompanied half the looks in this poetic, polished and unexpected collection.

These leggy knits were paired with mercerized cotton jerkins, snug little Rude Boy with manners jackets and Two Tone era skinny ties – a big Milan trend. Marni shoes were also real winners, knobby workerist boots in bottle green or metallic gray with subtle strips of contrasting color like burgundy.

"Unconventional but sophisticated," smiled Consuelo Castiglioni, Marni's Creative Director, backstage after the show.

One of several smart women setting the fashion agenda in Milan – don't forget Miuccia, Donatella or Silvia – Consuelo has been a major force in women's fashion for nearly a decade. Arguably no designer has a more devoted following among card-carrying fashionistas, editors, critics, stylists and PR folk, than Castiglioni. After just three seasons in men's wear she looks poised to extend her style hegemony into the masculine world.

That said, I know a lot of guys who wear leggings around the home to watch DVDs, lounge around before Premiership games or surf the Internet. But actually on the street, never mind into a nightclub or bar? Yet, the truth is that leggings are way more comfortable than pants and that if we fellows were not all so uptight and worried about our status we would have all begun wearing them a long time ago. So hats off to Castiglioni, and on with the leggings.

:dry: oh good god... why do I have a bad feeling a lot of emos are actually going to be going out wearing them?
 
Well, superheroes have been doing it for decades.
 
This is why leggins are bad for men. Bill Ward in the red pants

I don't think so
 
But when you have a gut from drinking and some eating, leggins are a bad idea.

Perhaps he was too stoned to care
 
The only time I wear leggings are for dancing. Other than that, you're gonna have to pay me to wear them for fashion.
 
Holy cow. Its bad enough that girls are wearing them again, under those stupid little tinkerbel skirts, or with the long jumpers. Guys as well? Its like an emo boy wet dream.

At least the superheroes will be happy.
 
It's going to be pathetic when emos start wearing this because it is fashionable. Its funny how non-conformists conform more than anyone else
