Dean Langley art directed and designed ‘Marni Uomo’, a special project photo book by fashion house Marni showcasing their AW13 menswear collection.
Marni’s website explaines how the brand’s founder conceived the project: ‘Consuelo Castiglioni was inspired by the work of art director Dean Langley. The collaborations starting point was the spirit of the mens collection and Marni’s creative approach to it. Consuelo was interested in experiencing the collection through the eyes of someone who had not been involved in the design, to have a new angle and a new take on the visual communication of Marni Uomo. Working with the Marni team, Dean Langley created a non linear portfolio of images, merging playful graphic elements with beautiful stills. The shocking fluo pink is an bold theme throughout the book, while the patterns are the seasons’ prints, typically used on the clothes, are photographed, enlarged and re-imagined. The Marni logo is manipulated in provocative new ways as well.’
