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.
