Ciao, Bella! Marni’s Magic in Milan

Nowhere else besides the quirky imagination of Consuelo Castiglioni can daring jewels, plaids, silk florals, textured tights, patterned knee socks, fur, brocade, and satin come together to produce one of Milan’s best fall 2009 runway shows. “Best” meaning interesting to look at and highly wearable. Unlike her her contemporaries, Castiglioni presented neither silhouettes for a tiny fraction of the female population to pour themselves into nor  a highly conceptual collection requiring a degree in rocket science.  I appreciate the boxy shape that she focused on, and I welcome the idea of dressing with personality. Combing pieces in this manner suggests nothing short of a woman confident in who she is. Brava!
