Consuelo Castiglioni doesn't typically go in for the androgynous look. The Marni customer is a dress-wearing, print- and embellishment-loving girl. For Pre-Fall, though, she switched things up, casting masculine suits and military-inspired outerwear as supporting characters for feminine dresses in effusive floral prints. Belts, hitched high on the waist, gave the boxy shapes the girlish, A-line swing typical of Marni. Fuzzy extras like yeti gloves and fox and mink stoles with detachable nylon hoods in contrast colors provided the quirk. Count on Castiglioni to whip up the most creative furs around. This season's main contender is a white shearling peacoat with a gold foil exterior. Not even a pair of men's pants could dispel the shimmering charm of that.
