Marni Fall 2011: She's a Lady

MILAN--Consuelo Castiglioni designs wearable clothes for a woman who likes things a bit off kilter. If there's a plaid, it's hand-drawn. Earrings? Oversize buttons. Fur? Pink and green, please. This season, Castiglioni brought quite a ladylike element to her wares, using fur gloves, peter pan collars, and a few of those molded, mid-century couture shapes that we've seen so often this season. Her shoes--mostly platform Mary Janes--looked fresh yet familiar. And that's what makes Marni so special. Castiglioni's pieces are so retro yet so quirky that they don't really ever date.
