The creative director at Marni on male vanity, the importance of modern suits, and the perils of ugly shoes.
1. A man has to discover his own taste and then base his
sartorial decisions on that—you shouldn’t buy something because you saw

2. I like a guy in a suit that’s cut a little

slightly shorter, and it works for him. My son is more daring. The most
important thing is to be yourself.

White collars are to dress in the classic style to work, while pupils wear school uniform on a daily basis.
