“Reset to Zero,” claimed the notes at Jil Sander’s comeback show. It could’ve been the rallying cry for the whole Spring season. Sander’s new minimalism is different—softer, at first glance, and slightly more accessible—than the clinical aesthetic she pioneered two decades ago. Still, we expected simplicity from the Queen of Clean. It was the pared-down approach of other designers that caught us off guard. Giambattista Valli, who just a few months ago was embellishing couture veils with butterflies, traded in furbelows for crisp tailoring, and Consuelo Castiglioni swapped Marni’s signature quirky prints for a streamlined monochrome palette (pictured). “More clean, more fresh, more light,” she told Style.com’s reporter Tim Blanks. In all three cases, she was right.

Marni’s Consuelo Castiglioni won’t show her latest menswear efforts in Milan until tomorrow, but Style.com got an early look at what she’s got in store. The collection, “an exploration of prints used on simple forms,” is showcased in this psychedelic film (directed by Clare Shilland) made in conjunction with Saturday’s presentation. Here, in Projections, watch model Will Westfall make the clothes come to life on screen.
No sooner has the Versace for H&M collection arrived than the Swedish mass retailer is plotting its next partnership: This one with Consuelo Castiglioni of Marni. The Italian label will collaborate with H&M on a Spring collection for men and women, including accessories, shoes, scarves, and jewelry. The retailer promises all-over prints, bold color, and classic Marni silhouettes, including full pleated skirts, dresses, and cropped pants. “I wanted to create a true Marni wardrobe by revisiting all our favorite pieces in signature fabrics and prints. As always, I love juxtaposing prints and colors, mixing modern tribal with Bauhaus graphic and adding sporty utilitarian elements,” Castiglioni said in a statement. The collection will be available in over 250 H&M stores and online March 8, 2012. And keep reading for a video of Castiglioni and H&M’s Margareta van den Bosch discussing the label and the collaboration with Style.com’s Tim Blanks. Continue Reading “Up Next: Marni For H&M” »
Earrings made a big comeback—”big” in both size and scope—at the Spring shows. Marni‘s Consuelo Castiglioni led the way, accessorizing her Fall collection with door knocker-sized baubles and making ear candy in the form of mod, colorful hoops a big part of her story this season. Boho glam chandeliers punctuated every look at Oscar de la Renta and Emilio Pucci, while Dolce & Gabbana and Missoni turned up the kitsch factor with garden vegetables and gilded critters, respectively. Needless to say, street-style darlings like Shala Monroque, Anna Dello Russo, and Miroslava Duma kept up with the runways, showing off their jumbo-sized earrings in many a front row. But we’ve got to give props to stylist Catherine Baba, whose rotating collection of shoulder-scrapers is arguably as signature as her ubiquitous two-speed bike.
