Consuelo Castiglioni likes to talk about her Winter Edition pre-collection as the basis of a Marni wardrobe. A black shearling cape, a Kelly green plaid trench, and a long brown leather vest all fit with the concept of "trendless pieces to keep and wear forever." Still, it felt much sportier in sensibility than her runway shows, with racing stripe pants, zip-front track jackets, and a black-and-white check—like the starting flag at a car race—on a drawstring-neck shift dress. But there was plenty of Castiglioni's signature quirkiness, too, including doll-print T-shirts that play back to the video she made to promote the line.
