Marni - Milan Fall 2009
(MILAN) Mixmaster Consuelo Castiglioni did it again, but contrasting with last season's spectacle of brights, her look for Fall was darker--if by no means less complicated. The gilded garlands strewn about models' necks had accessory editors swooning, but they were simply the icing on this well-executed mix of lean skirts, swing coats, textured tights and daffy accessories (fur earmuffs, anyone?). The busy platforms, abstract floral prints and fur cardigans are the makings of this brand's soul--one that went even deeper this season.
