A sportswear-attired tribe: sportswear has long been part of Consuelo Castiglioni's oeuvre at Marni but today it was amplified with couture-inspired silhouttes, made to look "off" in some instances and then finally given a folkloric and artisanal twist.
Stand out looks:
Nylon padded tracksuit tops and bottoms worn with high funnel necks and huge turn-ups – they gave new meaning to the term sports-luxe. When Castiglioni got visceral, you had an array of feathers multiplying and swarming all over skirts and coats. There was a sincerity about the application of fearless folksy detailing.
Magnus Plessen's stripped painted portraits were printed on silk aerated tunic dresses. The look of dripping and chipped off paint was turned into a print.
Wet hair gelled and matted over the forehead – windswept and sea drenched. It was just as textural as the collection.
How they wore it:
Yet more fraggle rock fur as per many of the shows in Milan, but at Marni, they were worked into brightly coloured elastic-banded stoles or earthy-toned giant patchwork fur coats, cinched in at the waist.
