Milan: If Consuelo Castiglioni has taught her fans anything about Marni, it is to expect the unexpected. The designer is a master of creating twists on fashion’s latest obsessions, and for Pre-Fall that meant new takes on new must-haves like the baseball jacket. Castiglioni’s version featured patterned fur sleeves, while her styling was a cross-pollination of sport and classic lady-like Marni; cropped boxing shorts layered over two-tone leggings, and kangaroo pouch nylon tops paired with pleated full skirts. In addition to the many textural fur pieces, pattern was an essential element of the collection, mixing plaid with stripes, checks and dots throughout. A few matched sets were a bit over the top, but with this much quirky colorblocking, genre bending and playful accessories, Marni is well within another successful Pre-Fall comfort zone.—Nina Stotler
